the floors here...

Sunday, July 9, 2017
... don't line up properly. Probably not uncommon with additions to buildings when more space is needed over time. But annoying to be continually going up 1/2 a flight or down six steps to get to the next level. The older/original part of the building is maybe three floors plus basement space, and the parking deck has ramps and slanted floors to semi-match up providing access. The new addition (the part where the hospital mysteriously lost 30 million dollars when they added all the expenses from contractors) is not in sync with the other parts of the facility. Remarkably poor planning on the part of the architecture firm that was probably paid millions for design.

Every time I come over, I drive into the lower floors of the deck to be in the shade. Then walk down half a flight of stairs, enter the stair well and troop up  an entire flight to get to the place I need to be. When this adventure started, early on in the event daughter and I got on an elevator, but then could not decide whether we should go up or down.

Bafflement compounded by the elevators buttons being labeled as :A, B, C. As well as 1, 2 and 3. So when we ended up in the wrong place, I commented that I was confused by all this, and did not know which direction we wanted to go to get to the right level in the parking deck. She said: "It's not confusing, Mom. The elevator only goes up or down." Pretty profound, huh?
