I really enjoyed Dirk Knemeyer's post on The Elevator Experience.
I recently left a job where I did have to ride on elevators everyday, where I had to sit in rush hour traffic, and where I paid for parking.
Now I work in a small town which is busier on weekends than it is during the working week. I'm not sure if there are any buildings in town that have an elevator. parking is free, and there seems to always be a spot to park in near work.
I've been hit with a bit of culture shock over the change. But I'm enjoying it. The little differences are magnified as I'm getting used to the change.
I suspect that I'm not alone. It's getting easier to work with others located around the globe without having to do it from a metropolis.
Don't miss those elevator rides, either.
