My office building is a downtown landmark of sorts, so it’s quite old. It has one of those old school mail chutes in it which extends the full height of the hallway on each floor and is transparent. Normally it just looks like part of the wall and I don’t even notice it when I walk by. Then there are those times when a letter drops down the chute just as I’m walking past it. My reaction feels like one of those videos in which a cat gets startled and leaps four feet straight up into the air.
* Just walking down the hallway, no big deal AAAAAAHHHHH KILL IT! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!! *
