Just Hangin’ Around

I have been scouring the news for it, but to no avail. I mean, I guess ordinarily a suicide isn’t news. But I’d think that a suicide in an office building adjacent to K Street would be.

It makes for a weird morning. You walk in, you punch your floor, and the button doesn’t light up. You assume the elevator’s broken and you try another, and your buttons still doesn’t light up. You ask the security about it, and she says you’ll have to go to 7 and walk down. You walk next-door to grab some breakfast, then you find that you’re building’s on lockdown. You call your office. Your boss has to come rescue ya.

They found this person at about 9 a.m. He or she had somehow hanged him or herself from some support beam in the atrium on my floor. All’s I saw was a bunch of yellow police tape. The office was obviously shaken about it. But there was nothing to do but work.
