The Elevator Ride

"This has to be the slowest elevator in the world," a bearded man said as he stepped onto the people lift in the grand hotel where I'm staying.

"Really?" I said as I checked my cell phone. It was 9:59.

"Uh Huh," said the bearded man shaking his head and clicking his tongue.

The elevator said, "Ding."

I had reached my destination on the 30th floor. I checked my cell phone. It was 9:59. The slowest elevator in the world? I almost said, "Enjoy the ride," but instead just smiled and walked away.
