6 Six-Foot Guys I Wanted To Kill In The Elevator

It started just like any other Thursday afternoon, after finishing my last class of the day, I was elated to head back to my dorm and take a much-needed nap.

Living on the tenth floor, stairs were certainly not an option. I scanned in my resident card in the elevator and hit the button for the tenth floor. A distant call from down the hall begged "Wait! Grab the door!" and I, being the kind soul that I am, stuck my arm between the slowly closing jaws of the elevator door.

To my surprise, six rather tall boys joined me in the tiny, enclosed chamber. Being packed like sardines in the elevator has become an everyday occurrence for me, so I actually did not mind that this clique packed in with me. However, I was mildly annoyed that I did not receive a mere "thank you" for my heroic act of risking my arm being crushed by the unforgiving elevator.

The cold metal doors slammed shut after all the boys had shoved in. One of the boys promptly announced loudly and proudly that he had a "funny idea." His idea of fun was trying to get us all stuck in the elevator. He counted down from three and on three all six of the boys jumped. Hard.

Just yesterday an elevator broke down and the fire department had to use "the jaws of life" to pry open the doors and pull out the unfortunate occupants.

Now I had reason to be much more than mildly annoyed. I shot the dirtiest look I could to the guy who suggested that we should attempt to get ourselves stuck in a miserable situation. But alas, there was nothing I could do. They had already jumped. No look of disgust could reverse what had already happened. The elevator shook violently but, thanks to the work of God himself, it continued upwards toward the heavens.

Perhaps the only reasonable explanation for why the elevator did not break down under such great pressure is that God knew that I would have killed six boys that day if they had gotten me stuck.

The boys got off, all laughing hysterically while pushing and punching each other for no apparent reason.

Against all odds, I did, in fact, make it to my dorm room alive that day. After being majorly inconvenienced by those six six-foot boys, I threw myself into bed and took a much-deserved nap.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
