The FingerI like to say that I am in no way superstitious, but I realized recently that that's not entirely true. Besides sports (because come on, anyone who watches sports and cares at all is superstitious about it) I have an elevator superstition.The Finger1 day ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe it's because of that time I was stuck in an elevator for an hour in a shanty Louisiana apartment complex (it smelled and I was alone and small and terrified) or various other old elevator experiences where they rattled or stopped suddenly between floors. You get the idea.
So my (almost) subconscious way of dealing with potential elevator disasters is the bird. Every time I'm in an elevator (alone) and the doors begin to close, I flip the bird at whoever is standing in the hall (subtly, so I don't get beat up), or just in general. Dunno why, but as far as I know it seems to work. I haven't been in stuck in an elevator in years.
Thank you, middle finger. Rise on.
