Oh My Gosh! I don't think I could get on this elevator. If the chime that lets you know the car has arrived sounds like that, I wonder how bad the cables are?

Although there is no official phobia or fear that has been singled out strictly for elevators many people do get nervous riding in them.  The reason most people who don't like elevators give for not wanting to ride is claustrophobia. Things can get pretty cramped when you're packed in with a lot of people.

Still this most pathetic cry for help that comes from the elevator chime would probably be reason enough for me and big fat butt to want to take the stairs.
