Today, my wife got all excited when she saw the elevator we were in had a feature to make it go sideways. I didn't have the heart to tell her they were the buttons to open and close the door. FML

at least her IQ just got elevated

#24 I think she has her ups and downs.

My first thought: Wow, your wife is a dumbass. Then I realized I thought the elevator actually went sideways until I finished reading the FML. I guess we all have our moments lol

right. im just curious on how old is she, and why has she never been in an elevator before. and if she has been in one before, why she thinks this. oh well, we all have our moments.

I don't know but I thought that was kind of cute Lol we all make simple mistakes so we don't actually know if OPs wife had a brain fart moment or if maybe she does have a "low IQ"

#47 & #89 Could be ups and downs, or ins and outs. I keep going from side to side on it.

You do realise your comment is aimed at #2? Maybe the interface of this app is too complicated for you.

Turbolift!!! Those would be very cool to have.

#37 wanted his comment to be seen

They have elevators that do that. There's one in the Missouri capital building. It requires a key that, but still, it exists

Was it Willy Wonka's glass elevator?

I'm aware of my major fail. I deserve to be tarred and feathered.

Actually, I confuse those two a lot too. And it's for damn sure I'm not the only one.

Thinking about an ocean's horizon helps me remember which way is horizontal. Plus I like to Mambo.

I prefer a carpet floor, especially during cold months...

How could she get the two mixed up?

Maybe she's never been on an elevator, or she was drunk.....or maybe she's just an idiot?

I'm sorry, she wasn't aware of that before? I'm pretty sure it's not a new concept...

They might live in a rural area. I do, and the only times I ever actually use an elevator is when I'm in the hospital, or visiting NYC. Don't think I've ever seen one outside of those 2 places.

What did she think the bell button was? Coffee hour?
