One of John Jay’s elevators has been undergoing emergency repair since the beginning of the semester.

The oppressed and alienated residents of the 15-story building now have to make a choice: to arduously wait in line for up to 20 minutes or to scale the building’s interminable stairs.

Enraged, the John Jayites are rising against the system. They can’t literally rise because they don’t have an elevator, so they have appealed to the most efficient and universal form of university protest: snarky annotations.
