Back in December 1962, during the Christmas school vacation, we moved to our first elevator building. It had a metal car and a cutout pattern running our the elevator at the top of the elevator cab.

The elevator had an interesting oddity that I used when my friends came with me up to the apartment I was living in. The elevator could only go to one floor at a time. When my friends got on the elevator with me, when they were not looking I would press two elevator floor buttons at the same time. It caused the elevator to stop; when it did I would say "Not again." They would get scared, I would then say let me see if I can do anything." I would then press my floor again and the elevator would start to move again.

This was something I did once in a while when the friend I had with me, was going to my apartment for the first time.
