Thanks ImNoGod & Se1... I appreciate your compliments. :)

I was gonna relate a crazy-legs feeling and then the story just got away from me. It's not really even remotely the same thing as what happened to that guy, though. I dunno, I guess I was just feeling talkative and started rambling.

And yeah, the funny thing about it was I didn't realize I had absolutely NO strength left in the back of my legs after going down 20 or so flights of stairs. It was a weird feeling, and I didn't have any inkling that there was an issue until I started to sit. It was embarrassing.

Also, I didn't mention, that I was worried the whole meeting that I wasn't going to be able to stand up when it was over. I started worrying that some bigshot was gonna come up to me and talk (which didn't happen and never happened to me, being a peon) and I was going to have to just sit there in may chair and like up at him or her, like they weren't worth standing up for.

@jimboh, yeah we don't care xP

Well aren't you just something....

Pretty cool story there Jimboh. I wouldn't say you know how he felt but i'd say you have had a similar feeling. By the way, that must have been mighty awkward for you xD.

I know that was waaay off-topic, but it was gonna be shorter and I was gonna say that I sorta know the feeling, but my typing just took over.

Anybody else hear those crickets chirping?

So, I walk into this meeting with all of these important people who don't know who I am (glorified intern going in place of one of the biggest people in the administration) and head to sit down at this long conference table like I was somebody. (In these high level meetings, underlings sit along the wall and stand when those seats fill up... I was instructed to do otherwise so it wouldn't look like my boss was skipping out.)
The meeting was just about to start when I went to take my seat, and I realized, on the way down, that I had absolutely no power in my legs to slow my descent. I landed in the chair like I'd been cradling a pile of bricks, and everybody looked at me.

At this point, I simply began the meeting (was not MY meeting) by introducting myself and saying where I was from. A pause followed and the "chair" said, with some irritation, that he'd now go around the table and everyone could introduce themselves as I just had.

I worked in a government building that was 22 stories tall. One day, I had gone up to the top floor observatory-deck just to relax for a few minutes before a meeting that was to take place on the second floor.

So, about 10 minutes before the meeting was to start, I decided to head down. What I hadn't count on was a large group of tourists planning to leave the observation deck at the same time. With two (slow) elevators and a large group before me, I figured I'd just walk down the 20 (or so) flights of stairs to the second floor. I mean, I could've asked to go ahead of them, but it couldn't be that bad, right?

So I start heading down these stairs, and each story's worth had 8-10 steps (I guess), a 180 degree turn at a landing, and then another 8-10 steps. I got into a rhythm and even started jumping the last couple at each landing.

I wasn't getting sweaty (good thing... suit and meeting and work and all) and felt fine when I finally made it to the second floor. TBC

They didn't help him because he was trying to cross the finish line which was right in front of him. I'm sure he could even be disqualified if they touched him and he would probably kill them (once his body was re-hydrated and able to properly function again).

Aww, why didnt they guys in red help him instead of looking at him. Idiots.

He looked too skinny to be in a triathlon anyway, there was no muscle on the poor guy to get him through it
