Weight capacity reached.

Today I was riding in an elevator with 11 other people. It was in a 2 story building and we were going from the first floor to the basement. Well little did we know we'd gone over the maximum occupancy and we stressed out the elevator a little bit, because we caused it to go a foot below the basement floor and stay there. We were stuck in there for a good 25 mins. My first reaction was a little manic. I started laughing which caused me to get really hot which caused me to stress out a little which made me think about the situation some more and start thinking of worse case scenerios which made me get a little claustrophobic which then led to more laughing and over heating that i couldn't stop. Needless to say i was getting really stressed and wanted to get out ASAP. But i eventually calmed down and was able to handle the next 20 mins. They eventually got the top door open and took off the ceiling and lowered a ladder. As soon as i got onto solid ground i collapsed and was tempted to kiss it. It was a great way to end a day at work.
