So the ACAM system in our building is down for the second time in two weeks. This is the system that operates the proximity cards that unlock the front door. Which means we now have to carry a key to the front door. And the “disabled” door buttons no longer work. You know, the ones you push to open the door when you are in a wheelchair.
What that means for me is that it is a pain in the tushy to leave or re-enter the building. I do it, I have to. Unless I want to get Friday a litter box. (NO, just NO.)
I fear this is the beginning of the end, and something will need to be replaced for the doors to work. I vividly remember the elevators continually failing before they were replaced. I also remember the six months it took to replace them when only one worked at a time. And then it was still an adventure to get in the elevator, you never knew if it would stall and trap you.
Oh, well, I guess I should quit bitching. It is less of a problem than being on the tenth floor without an elevator, and with bad knees.
P.S. I have no idea what the acronym ACAM stands for. Perhaps the engineering types have some idea.
