Ding - This is YOUR floor?

What work to tackle first. Where to eat lunch. Whether to take the stairs or the elevator. All decisions that millions of weary office workers make daily.

Apart from in Ding, where everyone takes the elevator. Why? Because of Shadwell – the proudest lift operator in America. With a spotless uniform and a cheerful demeanour (once you pay him), there seems to be no reason to take the stairs.

Unless your destination is floor 13 -  Shadwell won’t stop at that floor. And every time the elevator reaches this unlucky floor, he’s forced to perform some weird acrobatics to keep the lift moving.

Until a frustrated client stops the lift at that very floor. Determined to take the stairs.

Shadwell’s warnings can’t stop him. But what Shadwell’s been “protecting” his clients from can…

About The Reviewer

Real name: 

That guy who does a load of STS reviews and writes when he's not working or reading superfluous interesting articles. My filmmakers Rushmore is Nolan, Kubrick, Hitchcock, and Eastwood. Psychological thrillers, crime, and dramas are my thing, but I'm impartial to anything that's written well and with heart. Surprisingly successful at helping STS writers get optioned.Read more

Drinks coffee, owns an unhealthy amount of plaid and uses a calculator for the most basic of sums.Read more
