He's gonna walk up half the building every non rainy day? Why not keep an elevator stick like I do? You can even leave it there, nobody wants an old stick. Unless you're me. Sorry, former stick owner, finders keepers

If the man lives in a building with a penthouse it's more than likely that building has staff at the front desk and a doorman that usually greets you and escorts you to the elevator i'm sure they know if he's not tall enough that they will make all staff aware to assist the man in pushing the penthouse button for the elevator everytime he returns
