Elelator go down the hoooooooole...  
So, I'd PLANNED to take the stairs up to my room on the fifth floor, but as another girl and myself walked into the lobby of the dorm, we saw the elevator was about to go up. We got in, and up we went. As I was getting off at my floor, however, I kinda tripped, my keys fell out of my hand and straight down the elevator shaft through the hole in the floor.

I went down to the first floor, and they weren't there, but somewhere below the elevator. Thankfully, another man who was in the elevator was a maintenance worker, and he was not only kind enough to radio his partner to find out who I needed to call, he also had a set of keys that allowed me to get back into my room to call them.

About five minutes after calling Physical Plant, a man met me in the basement to open the elevator shaft and get my keys out. He said, believe it or not, it happens all the time with professors and students. It didn't take but another two or three minutes to get my keys back. I was very very grateful.

The moral of this story, though, is to always take the stairs.
