A timid and quiet bookkeeper is working late, starts heading for home in the dark.
He passes an apt building with a drunk outside trying to get his keys in the front door.
the timid man figures to do a christian thing and help him inside. He manages to get the keys from the guy, takes him into the lobby, but sees the whole place is under construction. He asks the guy what apt he lives in, but guy merely mumbles something. so timid guy figures he'll just take him upstairs out of the lobby so others won't see his condition. He punches the elevator button but it takes too long, so the guy nearly drags the drunk up the stairs. Finally getting to the first floor, he figures enough of this, because many of the lights are out in the hallways. so he gropes along the wall in the dark, finds an open door, and tosses the drunk into the room , figuring that when he wakes up he can find his own way home.
Getting down to the lobby, he finds another drunk passed out on the floor. What kind of place is this, the timid man wonders? So he decides to help this guy, too. With greater effort, he gets the drunk upstiars, and manages to find the open door again, and toss him in with the first drunk. As he goes downstairs, he figures he'll never ever come to this place, if all its tenants are drunks.
Once more down into the lobby, he finds ANOTHER drunk passed out on the floor. He figures he'll never get home, reaches down to pull the man up, the drunk wakes up, sees the guy's face, screams horribly, and staggers outside into the arms of a passing cop.
"Officer, officer", the man barely slurs out of his drunken state, "that man in there keeps taking me up to the 2nd floor and throwing me down the elevator shaft!!"
