Yesterday, I received a friend's email via Yahoo groups. The subject was: What To Do When You Are Trapped in A lift? I didn't see any content or attachment in that email, so I ignored it.
This morning a friend from that group responded to that thread with this: So what do you do, press the "untrap" button?
Instead of 'getting' the joke, the first thought that crossed my mind was: Shouldn't that be "click" the untrap button?
Then I realized, the lift might not be one of those cools ones with a touch-screen input panel. Where do they have any of those anyway, except in sci-fi movies? Also, in that case, shouldn't we call it "touching" the untrap button? Then again, that would be wrong because we're actually touching the screen and not the button as such.
By then the joke died a silent death. Dang the profession!
PS: Initially, I wrote content / attachment, but scratched that to include "or." Like we say in Indie English... I'm a gone case. Mera kuchh nahi ho sakta.
