I was just going out to work on my interview prep for tomorrow.
As the elevator door was closing,
I saw the door began to shake -
I did not know why it was doing this.
I thought the elevator was having a huge breakdown
(it is an older one).
The elevator started really rumbling and shaking,
sand was falling on my head.
I prayed Lord have mercy automatically
and pressed the elevator alarm button.
By then I was going past the 2nd floor and
then it opened like it is supposed to one the first floor.
I called my landlords immediately,
still thinking that it was just an elevator problem
(a BIG elevator problem!).
