addendum to my post on elevator peeves
peeve # 7. people who jab the call button again and again while waiting for the elevator. Honestly, folks, it doesn't work.

January 16 is 'National Nothing Day', that special day of the year when everyone is not just allowed but encouraged to sit around and... well, do nothing.

Because that would just be silly...
