Today, I was going to work and got in the elevator. I was going through my bag for my phone and asked the man in the elevator to push the button for me. He gave me a look of death before I realized he had no arms. FML

How did he get on? Don't you have to push a button for the doors to open? And before the dickhole comments come in let me answer now...

1) He could push it with his foot (which I have seen done). In that case it shouldn't be a hard task for him to repeat, and if he can't then he isn't trying hard enough and not meeting his potential.

2) Somebody could have pressed the button for him. In this case he should pay it forward and stop being an asshole. How is he gonna hit the button? See #1

Agreeing with Max, "someone could have pushed it for him and got out" it just too much of a coincidence. Anyway, if it was true, he should have noticed him/her looking through his/her bag. I'm pretty sure it's not the first time it has happened to the guy.


It could have been just his forearms that were gone. Or even if he didn't have any arms at all, he could have gotten in the elevator with somebody else, though the way this FML is written, it seems unlikely.

He didn't choose his floor. He probably would have waited for someone else or the op to press the button. Damn. Some people are just dumb. But u were in a rush and there is no way u could she known op. Fyl

He managed to push the button to make the doors open and his own floor's button, I'm assuming. :)

Totally! Bow chicka wow wow.
That raises the question of how he goes to the bathroom alone....

If the OP lived on a high floor, she could always show him her tits to help him reach the button.

Unless she had nasty tits and then would end up in the parking garage.

expecting a stranger, someone you obviously hadn't even made eye contact with, to do anything for you, even as simple as pushing that button, because getting your phone is more important just shows how important you think you are. and pretty self-centered too. push your own button and get your phone after.

There are still plenty of ways for him to push a button... He could just use a straw in his mouth to push a button, use his foot, or even use his arm stumps as long as they aren't too wide and can still hit just one button.. Hell, there are even prosethics if he can afford it as well.. I could go on and on forever. But yeah if this is actually true it's ridiculous of him to give you a mean look. As for you, just press the buttons yourself first and then look through your bag next time.
