I work on the 47th floor of a high rise building.
Luckily, I can use the pregnancy card to avoid walking down 47th floors. While physically I can do it (can't be harder than a half marathon!), I have a phobia of staircases that are higher than 3 stories. Not heights per say as I'm fine on chairlifts, elevators, working on the 47th floor, etc. but actually being able to look down multiple stories freaks me right out. The procedure for people who are unable to take the stairs is to stay in the stairwell outside your floor and wait until you either receive word that you can go back to work or that you can take the elevator down. We waited for 35 minutes in the stairwell until it was announced that the building was safe and we could return to work. Since I could still make my prenatal appointment, although a few minutes late, I quickly took the elevator down and left. In the lobby, the building staff were handing out chocolates to thank everyone for their cooperation. Nice gesture for the inconvenience.

For the record, his hair doesn't look horrible. It is quite short and really time will tell if it is actually a bad cut or not but for now he's still presentable!
Do you have a bizarre phobia?
Do you attempt to salvage a bad recipe or just throw it out?
Would you ever cheat on your hairstylist?
