Come to a stop

At last, it seems like the noises from the trade fair has stopped for the night. It is going to end soon. I will be pleased to say "bye" to it by then.

***
On the other hand, the two lifts that serve the apartment block that I am staying in were both faulty tonight. They both stopped working at the same time! It was not good news to reach the ground level of one's block to find both lifts not working. Furthermore, I was feeling pretty tired by 9.50 p.m. in the night from a long day at work. One was faulty and was under maintenance; the other had broke down.

***
I have no motivation to walk up to my unit from the ground level. I live higher than twenty storeys. I was feeling tired already and have no moods to walk twenty storeys up. Thank goodness that in about slightly more than half an hour's time, a technican came to get one of the lifts that had broken down to work again.

***
When is the world coming to a momentarily stop, so that what is going too fast could have the chance to stop and slow down to take a moment of breather?

That is unreal. The problem with the lifts. Does that happen a lot?

It is rare occasion for both lifts not to be working at the same time. Such has only happened about five to six times in the entire 20 plus years that I live in this block.

more than twenty storeys? Geez, mine is on the 20th and I'd tried tat once... it could be fun with the right attitude, i.e. kept telling myself that I can lose some weight.

I won't mind walking up the stairs if I weren't feeling tired and if I were feeling better. But well, I won't wish to walk up the stairs under last night's circumstances.
