Technology Hates Me Week so far:

Car breakdown (now fixed).
Laser eye surgery breakdown (not yet fixed and now requires intervention of German expertise).
LJ breakdown leading to wah-ing on G+.
Work-related necessary web portal breakdown, necessitating fingerdrumming and minesweeper while waiting for fix.
Power failure causing me to be trapped in a dark lift for 20 minutes at lunchtime today (also required intervention from a nice young German with a crowbar).

Tonight I am going to attempt cooking. If you hear sirens, it's probably me.

I was once stuck in a too-crowded elevator with about 100 ladies from the deep south (and one man) all dressed in Sunday best, complete with bonnets, while I was in a swimsuit and towel coming up from the hotel pool when the elevator broke. It was a billion degrees. They all started to invoke jesus's name in some sort of group prayer. I felt culturally inappropriate. It's unclear if Jesus got us out or someone akin to a german with a crowbar...

That is a hilarious scenario, I must say. Was there a good punchline?

Ouch. That power failure left me in a dark room with two superconducting magnets that would've filled the room with very cold helium if the backup generator hadn't kicked in. There was fleeing...

That wasn't the *same* German, was it?

That is possible, although I hope laser-German wasn't called away from his fixing of the eye laser to rescue me from a lift! He has work to do!

Was it a euphemistic crowbar?
