1000 Kilograms

I don’t have lots of body mass or weight and I am really skinny for a male and females wished they had my metabolism and other men make jokes about skinny stature. I weigh much less than the average male which the average weight of a male is 196 pounds. Now I live in a fancy residential estate flat and i have a good paying job so I can afford it. It has two elevators for the whole 26 floored building and they are very quick and efficient. The elevators can only allow up to 13 people which is about 1000 KG and if the weight surpasses this the elevators will simply not work and it will say on the screen something like ‘too much weight inside elevator please reduce it’

Now this last month that has just gone by I have been working late and so when I get back to the flat and use the elevators to get to the floor I live on I am on my own, my flat is on the 20th floor, I really do not like walking up the stairs all the way to the 20th floor. Now I remember getting inside the elevator and pressing the 20 button inside the elevator but all of a sudden I was surprised that the screen inside the elevator read ‘too much weight please decrease’ and this was confusing because I was the only one inside the elevator. I kept on trying to press the 20 button but nothing worked and I had to use the stairs.

It happened again a couple of days later and I worked till late and only I was using the elevator. Then when it happened again as the elevator screen was telling me that there was too much weight inside of it, I informed the night reception concierge about this. He investigated the elevator and when it was both of us inside the elevator, it suddenly started to work. He told me it might have been a glitch or something.
