Mine are generally involve being at the top of a skyscrapped for whatever reason, getting into an extremly small and old looking lift/elevator, and then for the cable to snap at somepoint whilst it's moving downwards. And sometimes the elevator even decides to have a mocking conversation in that really annoying elevator voice you get in them.
Do you know, I think that may well be my worst fear. Falling to my death in one of those things.
Seriously. Given the option between dragging a suitcase up twelve floors by stairs, or by going in the lift...I take the stairs. Every time.
I use lifts when I have to. I don't panic so much in them. I just don't like the thought of a lift falling, for some reason.
I really don't think I'm going to be living in a skyscrapper. No way I'd handle that. At all.
