The Condé Nast building is a place of great mystery and power. It also has a legendary cafeteria, and the elevators are an infamous hive of activity and gossip.
We have no idea why it took so long, but some genius started a Twitter account called @Conde Elevator to chronicle all the convos that take place in the storied elevators. We applaud the brave soul who started it and sincerely hope that s/he does not get canned.
There are only 13 tweets on there so far, but it already deserves its own “Ten Best Tweets” list. So here they are, in no particular order:
-Woman #1 to Woman #2, holding an omelet: “What’s the occasion?” Woman #2: “…huh?” Woman #1: “I would need an occasion to eat that.”
-Girl 1: “Is this skirt totally see through?” Girl 2: “No! No! Looks great.” Guy, after they exit: “That skirt was totally see through.”
-Girl 1: Omg, that just made my day. Girl 2: [blank stare] Girl 1: That was Questlove! …The drummer for The Roots? Girl 2: [blank stare]
