Do your stairs think you’re fat?

March 28th, 2009 · 100 comments

Rachel in Victoria, B.C. found this somewhat puzzling bit of anthropomorphism (stairs have feelings? really?) posted in the elevator of her building. “My favourite part is ‘your bum will love it,’” Rachel says. “No better way to guilt trip people into ‘saving energy’ than by insinuating that they’re fat!”

Stairs have feelings too! They love being walked on and require no energy except your own which is LIMITLESS and FREE!  --your bum will love it

      People, please use the stairs. If they feel unwanted, they may take “flight”. Then we’d be left with only that cold, capricious, bitch of an elevator!

      This is probably the same type of person as the girl in my college dorm who used to passive-aggressively yell “Recycle!” out her dorm room door every time she heard someone throwing a bag of garbage in the community garbage can in the hallway near her end of the hall. They think they’re educating the masses about all the good they can teach us all to do for the environment.

    Bums love it when you take the stairs. They hide in the darkness and wait. Then they shove you from behind and when you’ve finally settled at the bottom in a broken, bloody heap they rummage through your pockets with dirty fingers, stealing every last item of value. After they’ve searched every nook and cranny(some of them totally unnecessary) they kick out your teeth so you look like one of them. Oh yeah, your bum will love it if you take the stairs.

      Claw,

      Sometimes when you post, I get the feeling that there’s someone out there who truly understands me. It’s almost like you’ve read every single page of every single one of my most intimate diaries.

      You’re so right about bums and stairs.

      I’m kinda glad you didn’t mention the part about how the bums hit my head so hard that I was knocked unconscious for 12 hours, and that when I finally came to, I was laying at the bottom of a dank, foul-smelling stairwell, completely naked, except for the well-used condom hanging out of my ass like a sad little tail in a sick version of a “pin the tail on the donkey” game, gone, if not tragically awry, then most certainly slightly askew.

      No money. No clothes. Aching all over.

      I couldn’t help but feel that those drunken, violent hoboes had somehow taken advantage of me.

      That said, elevators aren’t much better.

      I’ll never forget the time I got stuck between floors with a group of liquored-up tramps.

      The beastly vagabonds completely manhandled me, ravaged me, and then had their filthy, wanton ways with me.

      As you might imagine, not one of these despicable heathens seemed to possess the slightest regard for ordinary societal niceties such as genital hygiene, or even basic, common-sensical sexual techniques, like pacing the tempo of one’s thrusts in order to make the experience last longer.

      I’ve read stories of people being trapped in elevators for several days.

      My ordeal wasn’t quite that extended.

      Five minutes, maybe six.

      Still, by the time the elevator shuddered back to life, the winos were already so irrevocably spent that not a single one of them stood up when door swooshed open.

      Not even “Fishbones.”

      I was kinda shocked by that. I mean, it was about 10 o’clock on a Friday night.

      The night was just beginning and yet the hoboes were inexplicably spellbound in a zombie-like state of being. The little elevator cabin light cast a glow over them that reminded me of of an episode from the Twilight Zone.

      It was as if the elevator had become a gas chamber, and the hoboes had fallen victim to a toxic vapor, thus creating an artistic tableau suggesting a mood of recumbent lethargy that has been smothered by a soggy blanket of dogged sullenness. (I.e., the marital state of George and Laura Bush.)

      I hate to say this, because I don’t like being judgmental, but, as I exited, I couldn’t help but conclude that some bums are just plain lazy.*

      * To be fair, there probably are some bums who just aren’t “party people.”

    Those stairs really ARE passive-aggressive. I mean, they didn’t even write their own note. They lobbied a stair sympathizer to write it for them. If Bush was still in office, the note would be more like this:

    Dear Fellow Americans,

    If you don’t use the elevator, then you hate your country.

    Love,
    President Bush

    I can relate to this article as I know from first hand experience just how hard it is to lose weight, and to maintain it. I wrote a book called Alone in the Storm, which has recently been published, and it is about an overweight woman who subconsciously put on the weight to protect herself from being hurt by love. She struggles with her weight issues, and in the end she manages to overcome them, but not before she learns some important lessons about herself and life.

      I’m trying to imagine what she learned about herself, and what she learned about love?

      A. She learned she was fat.

      B. She learned that while a lot of men are turned off by obese women, there is a subset of society who actually fetishize the jumbo-sized.

      Then she learned these fat-heads only liked her for her blubber, not her personality.

      Next, she learned that beauty is in the eye of the drinker. If she couldn’t get herself drunk enough to not give a shit what people thought, she’d never find someone drunk enough to give it a go.

      Finally, after tiring of men throwing up on her bed in the morning, her best shot at getting a steady boning from a half-way decent guy would become a celebrity by writing a book that might appeal to Oprah and therby have a chance at becoming a bestseller.

      When it started going tits-up, she hired a spam-bot outfit, and crawled back into bed with her vibrator, a vente frappucino w/whip, and a well-used copy of Lane Bryant’s Best Erotica 2008.

      And she all jiggled happily after.

      If I hear the phrase “my book” in the near future out comes the Uzi.
      Who’d buy a book authored by someone who can’t even post an interesting comment on the internet?

      The book , extruded recently from Carla Cunningham’s unfeasibly prolific butt, has all the makings of a great Noah Bumbacklog screenplay — one that could provide ample residuals for decades to come.

      but what would we do if Carla or Hod weren’t providing us with all this fodder for our unbridled sarcasm and wit?

      Dear Carla Cunningham,
      Thank you for being so unabashedly self-serving and navel-gazing. You have contributed to our entertainment for the day.
      Love and Kisses,
      Beanster

    My bum really likes it when I leave more than a mouthful in the MD20-20 bottles I throw out every morning. I never ever recycle though because I don’t want the neighbors or the garbage collectors to know how much I drink or that I’m such a cheap drunk.

      My other bum really likes it when Papa is feeling all lovey and uses the astroglide instead of just yelling, “Ramming speed, full speed ahead,” while wearing only his Ass Rocket T-shirt. He can be such a pain in the ass.

    An escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You would never see an “Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order” sign, just “Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.” -Mitch Hedberg …

      …and here, the Hedbergian Theory of Ascension shows us that the escalator is inherently superior to both stairs and elevator…

    When I was a kid, I had a friend whose older brother had fried his brain completely after eating 50 hits of acid at once. The only thing the poor guy could do was laugh and grunt. He huffed glue. He drank cleaning products.

    But he was also more in touch with reality than the spaced-out freak who put up the goofy sign pictured above.

    This is an example of personification, not anthropomorphism. Anthropomorphism involves animals.

    Actually, as a person with lupus, my energy levels are the opposite of “limitless”. Fuck you , random PA poster-person.
