Lift Laughs

We've just had our lift refurbished. One of the refurbishments includes the addition of a stentorian voice which says "Third Floor" and "doors opening" at nearly appropriate moments. This, along with a resounding "Bing Bong" to announce the arrival of the dangling box, is slowly driving mad those of us lucky enough to be in earshot of the darned thing.

We were talking about fun things you could do with a lift like this. I suggested putting, in the corner of the lift, a half empty drum of wire which is labelled "Acme Safety Lift Cable. Not to be used after 1998". That should get the pulses racing.
