Service personnel rule practical

THE issue is simple enough. Service personnel are asked to use the service elevator.

The people who turn this into a racial issue forget that the service elevator is there for good reason. If I bring slimy, dripping supplies from the market, I use the service elevator. Not only does it lead directly to the kitchen, but I should not subject others to the smell and ''filth'', or make the main elevators dirty.

While the circular from the group of residents would seem racist, Christopher Cole's idea that service personnel other than maids should use the service elevator (South China Morning Post, November 27) is even more racist.
