When I was a kid, everyone told me that the most important thing in life was to be myself.
So yesterday, I rode an elevator facing the back wall.
Nobody spoke to me. The people at my sides stared at me. And I missed my floor.
When the elevator returned to the ground floor, a building security guy was waiting for me. I presume someone on the elevator called him.
He asked me if I knew what floor I wanted. I told him I did, but that I missed it because I was trying to be myself.
He got onto the elevator and escorted me to my floor.
When I got out of the elevator, I waved. He did not.
So kids, be yourself.
But prepare for a police escort.
