The Man in the Elevator

Well, I don't know what the laws are like abroad, or if they're even the same all over the US, but a person who is handicapped (and a dwarf/midget would certainly classify as such) wouldn't be stupid enough to live in a building that doesn't conform to the laws regarding the special needs of the handicapped. For example, all elevators have the buttons labeled with braille for the blind, and by law they have to have ramps to accommodate those in wheelchairs. One of the "little people" would most certainly have arranged with the building manager/owner to have either a stool permanently placed in the elevator or have the panel with the buttons lowered and placed within reach. I grew up with a friend who was confined to a wheelchair back in the 70s and she ran into this kind of problem everywhere. Everything has to be handicapped accessible nowadays. Although I have always wondered why they have braille drive-thru tellers. haha Just a joke.
Good logic puzzle, nonetheless.
I see what you are trying to say but I don't think that anyone can make a manager of a building install a permanent stool at the base of the buttons because that could be a hazard for the non-handicapped peops. In the case of the short persons I think that they are screwed as far as getting help in the elevators. I do sincerely believe that they should start carrying pens or pencils or dild*** with them for this specific purpose. HeHe

Mostly, the man may be short and he could not press the keys above than for 7th floor.
In a rainy day, he can have an umbrella, which will be useful to press any key.

I am sorry but lateral thinking puzzles should be based on some practical reality.
There is not a single midget in existence that wouldn't start carrying a freakin' pencil with him so that he can press that freakin' elevator button. That is BIG BS. I apologize for being rude. I am mostly just playing around, although, I belive that the point is valid.
