ELEVATOR TALE

THERE WAS A MAN WHOSE APARTMENT WAS ON THE TENTH FLOOR.
EACH MORNING HE TOOK THE ELEVATOR DOWN TO THE MAIN FLOOR
BUT EACH NIGHT AFTER WORK HE WENT UP ONLY AS FAR AS THE
SIXTH FLOOR. HE GOT OFF THE ELEVATOR AND CLIMBED THE
REMAINING FLOORS.
WHY DIDN'T HE TAKE THE ELEVATOR ALL THE WAY TO THE TENTH
FLOOR AT NIGHT? THE TELLER IS ASKED QUESTIONS THAT CAN
BE ANSWERED "YES" OR "NO" UNTIL THE STORY UNFOLDS.
-- THE MAN IS A MIDGET AND CAN'T REACH THE TENTH BUTTON.
