It was 5pm last night, and I got stuck in the elevator. I think it was the first time that ever happened to me. Not knowing whether I could make it to the meeting I flew cross-country for, I was devastated. But some conversations with my fellow “stuckees” (two professors and one undergrad) made the waiting more bearable. One professor and I are now even connected in LinkedIn. The crew got me out of the misery after an hour. Life went on.
It was 5am this morning, and I missed my flight. I think it was the first time that ever happened to me. Not knowing what the next flight might be, I was devastated. But reading the new Steve Jobs book made the delay more bearable. I even teared while reading some passage of this book. The crew got me out of Pittsburgh after an hour. Life went on.
