When it's your job to convey to your coworkers that *all three elevators* are out of service, please realize that trying to cheerfully sell the stairs (or the detour through the adjoining building with working elevators) as “hey, good exercise!” might be more than a bit ableist.
This is not a judgment of the kind, helpful, cheerful coworker who has the thankless job of standing by the elevators today and breaking the news to both staff and patrons. Just a wee rant from the guy whose bad-ish knee is not appreciating those five flights of stairs.
FWIW, I took the stairs and I'm fine, if a little sore and winded. I *do* need more exercise. My rant was not about my own needs.
