Elevator Riddle

A man who lives on the tenth floor takes the elevator down to the first floor every morning and goes to work. In the evening, when he comes back; on a rainy day, or if there are other people in the elevator, he goes to his floor directly. Otherwise, he goes to the seventh floor and walks up three flights of stairs to his apartment.
Can you explain why?

  • Ruthie Jean

    He is to short to reach the buttons.

  • Paul

    …and to explain the rainy days, he’ll use his umbrella to reach the ten button.

  • Yes Ruthie, he was a wee person, thus too short to reach the top buttons.

    You are today’s winner!!!

    Kudos to Paul, for explaining the “umbrella” slant.

  • A very clever girl you should be proud of

    The elevator only goes up to the 7th floor, so he walks down to the 7th floor each morning and gets the elevator from there down to the first floor! – Beat this you suckers!!!!!!!!!!!!
