        Jerry entered the elevator just before the door slid closed.  The passengers moved aside to allow him room and the large pastry box he carried.
        Seconds later, he sneezed.    
        Jerry sniffed. “Excuse me. I called in sick, but my boss said he couldn’t spare me today.”   
        Suddenly, the lights blinked and went out.
        A woman screamed in the dark.
        “Stay calm,” someone said. “Emergency power should kick in.”
        But it didn’t.
        One passenger called 911, and Jerry opened the box.
        He should have never been there in the first place, but why not make the most of it? “Donuts, anyone?”
