I liked this one the most


I sometimes really enjoy working on the sixt floor and the fact that the display in the lift is much to high. Nobody looks at it and many walk on, the first time the doors open. And, Six in german means "Sechs" and it's pronounced like "Sex".

Just yesterday the elevator door opened, a pretty women stepped out, looked on number behind my back, then smiled at me and said "Oh, Sex!" and turned back with a excusing look and gave me room to enter.
