    Does it exist? Does it not exist? Or both?

    Depends on the building in question?

    I’ll admit it- you got me curious enough to google it. I love Wayside School! It exists to the same degree as the 13th floor in other buildings.

    Thank you Gamanit, for giving a living example of why we try to be careful what references are allowed through! 🙂

    In a typical building with no thirteenth floor if you throw a ball between the 12th and 14th it bounces off.

    But in Wayside School is Falling Down, Allison gets trapped on the 19th floor.

    I always assumed that was a dream.

    Wayside School is fictional. Deal with it.

    I was on the 19th floor once. It wasn’t so bad. RebYidd23 was there too. RebYidd23 is nonexistent, according to his profile.

    I may not be truly nonexistent.

    Fictional things exist on a different plane.

    The 19th floor exists on a different fictitious plane than other fictitious things.

    It’s the 19th story.

    Ordinarily I wouldn’t be so pedantic but that’s actually the subject of a chapter in one of the books.

    Wow I loved those. Even the math one.

    My fiend’s spouse is hospitalized on 19th Floor and wishes to know if can utilize the elevator {when Nochri enters} on Shabbos to visit the Sick spouse? or should my friend spend entire Shabbos away from the sick spouse, to avoid entering elevator?

    If he’s a fiend, he probably isn’t so concerned about hilchos Shabbos.

    Okay, now that I’ve gotten the make-fun-of-the-misspelling joke out of the way, why is the alternative to stay away from the ill spouse the whole Shabbos? Maybe the alternative should be to stay on the 19th floor the whole Shabbos?

    Anyhow, the answer to this question likely depends on the degree of tzorech (my question alludes to a factor in that determination), and I don’t think you’ve given enough information to determine that.

    Maybe the alternative should be to stay on the 19th floor the whole Shabbos? Hospital regulations don’t permit, and their regulations certainly don’t care about Torah regulations vis a vis the 4th Commandment.

    Most hospitals which have many frum patients do accommodate, but I guess that won’t help your friend if this one won’t.

    So what remains is the question of how much the patient needs the spouse. If the need is great, I think most poskim would allow it.

    Also, as Writersoul pointed out (and I immediately

    thought when I saw the title), it’s the 19th story,

    and it is always referred to as such.
