How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love North Korean Elevators 5e5729759b5a1.jpeg

I used to be afraid of elevators. They took away my sense of control, and once they were moving I couldn’t stop them. To cope with this, if I were on a long elevator trip sometimes I would press a few extra buttons so the elevator would stop at more floors, giving me a chance to breathe. I especially hated glass elevators, high-speed elevators and express elevators. I often experienced vertigo for minutes after particularly traumatizing rides. And sometimes at the top of buildings, I had an alarming sensation that the whole building was about to tip over.
