Heard on 106.3fm and those two twits Cam and Lisa this morning jibber jabbering (it’s all they ever do) about a group of seven people who were trapped in an elevator that had broken down for…wait for it….15 minutes!!
15 minutes, how did they ever survive? Will there be 7 PTSD claims inbound?
Should the elevator servicemen be sent to Guantanamo Bay, A Russian Gulag or maybe even Queanbeyan?
Has society reached the point that 15 minutes trapped in a box with 6 other people, one of whom was a fireman who reassured them that everything would be fine, is now classified as a noteworthy and potentially dramatic and stressful experience?
Can’t wait to see what the next topic will be that gets Cam’s nerves all a’twitter, maybe he’ll be stuck in a queue at Woolworths for 15 minutes AND IT WON’T MOVE, or maybe the remote for his car won’t work and it will take 15 minutes for someone to come and rescue him and show him he could have just used the key!! Oh’ the humanity!!
Have we all just forgotten what real hardship is? Will we, as a society, cope when something really significant occurs or will we just collapse in a screaming heap?
