moving blows

…but thank the heavens for elevators.

EDIT! Day 3 of moving (it’s only from Orange to LA County; I guess it’s a trek if you take into consideration the horror that is the 405): it doesn’t blow any less.

    Elevators? In a non-work building? What the fuck? You’re telling me that when you moved you didn’t have to haul a mattress and 12,000 boxes up and down three flights of stairs? Interesting.

    I was amazed, too. And it’s only 4 stories!

    My worst moving experience involved an entertainment center (is that what they’re called?), a box spring mattress and a 6 floor walkup with narrow hallways. I sounded like Ross Gellar towards the end (“PIVOT! PIVOT!”).

    I lived on the 3rd floor of a non-elevator building a couple of years ago. Upon moving in my lovely Salvation Army sleeper sofa (it was really beautiful), 2 of the 3 movers were bleeding. Upon moving out my lovely Salvation Army sleeper sofa (still beautiful but now uneeded and covered in cat hair thanks to roomie), it flew out the windows of our 3rd floor balcony and landed in shambles in the parking lot below. It was cathartic.
