So I was in a hotel in San Francisco on a higher floor. A family of 2 adult ladies and a preteen girl and boy entered on a floor or two below my floor.
I was in the back of the elevator towards the right side in the corner. A couple of floors down I hear this water splashing sound and look to see the girl with her head down and capturing some of it in a baseball cap. Ok so she was barfing on the elevator. She said "Oh my god, I'm so sorry." Her brother said "My sister is sick. I'm sorry."
A second after, she barfs again and it just keeps coming. We hit the lobby and they rush out. A hotel worker just happened to be there and asked what had happened. The girl's mother said, Don't worry it's just water." I told the hotel worker that it wasn't water. I said that she threw up but it was too late because the elevator filled up and had already gone up.
The shitty thing was people just got on the elevator after we left for who knows how many trips. You know what, maybe she did just barf water but you know what? She threw up and if whatever she had was contagious, she had just contaminated that whole elevator. So no, it isn't just water. It was a biohazard.
I did feel bad for the girl. Stomach problems are not fun. But her mom should've made sure she got her barfing done in the room before getting into an elevator and coating the whole floor.
