Amanda Carpenter, a CNN contributor and author at the Conservative Review, got stuck in an elevator in the Amtrak terminal at the airport in Baltimore on Feb. 14, 2016. (How romantic.)

Lucky for her, Amtrak was more than happy to reach out...on Sept 7, 2016. Almost seven months later.

Amtrak's seemingly earnest question of "Are you still in the elevator?" is comedy if we've ever seen it.

Imagine being stuck in an elevator for seven months. Now while that sounds bad, and it'd be a real pain for no one to notice in that time, it'd at least be a relief that someone finally showed an interest, right?
