Good morning class, here we are again.
A less taxing question today.
I am wondering if people are finding this boring and should I stop posting them?🤔

Please don't post the answers, so that everyone can try
PM me if you wish.

A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work. When he returns he takes the same elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it?

Note that there is nothing wrong with the elevator or the design of the building. It is a perfectly normal elevator in a perfectly normal building.

I will be back later, have a good day!

A quick update.
Pantglas 🌟 is class swot and Jennifer Eccles 🌟 was close behind.

I will be back later with the joint certificate, as there was only a few minutes in their answers.

I'm really far behind this morning, a video call from my darling granddaughter. I'm in heaven! 😍 @ loved up gran!

It is my Sister's birthday today. She was 3 on VE day.

CraftyGranny Fri 08-May-20 10:42:32

Does the man only go to the seventh floor because he is small and he can't reach the 10th floor button

CraftyGranny Fri 08-May-20 10:43:25

Oh no. I am truly sorry for that. It is probably wrong anyway. I keep forgetting the PM button.

For Pantglass and Jennifer Eccles.

CraftyGranny, are you one of those people who get so excited about things and
can't hold their water ?😂

Here is a wee word teaser for a change.

What is the partially revealed common eight letter word?

Marydoll Fri 08-May-20 12:22:47
