The Burning Question*: When is it acceptable to take the lift and not the stairs?

Let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on you plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.

Possibly.

This week: We’ve all been there. In the lift in the office/department store/apartment block waiting to be risen to one of the upper floors and someone gets in. Their finger hovers over the buttons and then you realise they’re actually going to press for the first floor. The First Floor! What’s wrong with the stairs?

“It’s just a habit,” explains one during TheJournal.ie‘s argument about the whole issue.
