The Lift (elevator)
An Amish boy and his father left their primitive, reclusive community and visited a shopping mall for the first time. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, 'What is this Father?' The father (never having seen a lift before) responded, 'I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is.'
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, an elderly lady with a walking stick approached the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady walked slowly between them into a small room. The walls closed, and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached the last number, and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous young woman stepped out. The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son....'Go get your mother.'
