BORING! EASY! TRY SOMETHING HARDER NEXT TIME!

I am sorry but I have to disagree with "singcan". I thought it was a really good teaser. It was easy, but if you didn't read it carefully it would certainly trick you!

Too easy. The answer is too obvious unless you did not read it carefully.

When you can go back and read it again, it is easy. But I think if someone said this aloud to you you might be tricked...good job!

Some buildings skip the nunmber 13. So The 30th story might be called floor 31. Still, good teaser.

Well now, I think it's time for me to retire for the night (3:00 a.m.-morning?). I actually started to add and substract until it suddenly hit me - only 30 floors! Almost got me but not quite!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I got it, but you should know that some buildings skip floor 13, and floor 31 could be the roof.

Depends some elevators actual go to the roof. You never know maybe somebody wanted out on the roof.

I got it right but I still disagree with the teaser because many buildings skip floor 13.
