This is an old puzzle. When I was very young (and I'm pretty old now), my dad would play "How Come?" This was one of the conumdrums among a whole series. Note that this was before PC crud, when midgets were called midgets, and it was in no way insulting, just fact. If part of the solution requires specifying that the elevator buttons were at such a height that he could reach button 7 and not 8 (maybe in one column only, or starting with "G"round or "P"arking before the first floor button) - those DO exist), and that he didn't mind walking up the last 3 flights as much as he minded carrying an umbrella when it wasn't raining, then it's part of the solution.

he would be short..so the the button in the elevator coulkd not be used by him.when its raining he would carry an umbrella so he ll use it to make it;)is this right?
that's right ... fyi, there is solution on the first page of each puzzle (search for "Spoiler for Solution" underneath the puzzle and click on the button that says "Show")

What didnt make sense to me is that he could only go to the 7th floor. With that in mind, elevator buttons are usually in even rows so why the 7th floor and not the 6th or higher?? Anyone? I think I have a pretty valid point....
its not 6th floor or any lower because he'd have to walk up loads of flights of stairs
