Lunges top me time in elevator
Or, if you are a start-up entrepreneur, practise your elevator pitch
In 2010, technology firm IBM surveyed some 6,500 employees across 16 cities in the US to find out how much time they spent waiting for elevators and inside them over a 12-month period. Turns out that New York workers spent a cumulative time of 92 years waiting for them and 5.9 years inside them. Readers of this newspaper likely to spend a tonne of time in elevators too. This is both limiting and liberating. Limiting because you cannot speak on your phone as the reception is poor. Liberating for that very reason.
