Three friends, Gopal, Abdul and Peter, shared a flat on the 60,h floor of a skyscraper in New York. One night they returned home together and found that the lifts of the building were out of order and could only be repaired the next day. The only way to reach their flat was to walk up the stairs.

“It’s a long way to the top.” said Gopal. “I’ll sing while we go up the first 20 floors. Abdul, you tell us jokes over the next 20 floors. Peter, you tell us sad stories over the last 20. That will take our mind off the hard task.

They began climbing. Gopal sang song after song and they were soon on the 20'1’ floor. Then Abdul took over. He entertained his friends with jokes and they were on the 40lh floor.

“Now, it is my turn,” said Peter sadly, “and let me begin with the saddest story. I left the house keys in the car."

“Oh, how awful!” exclaimed his friends.
