Can YOU can answer this riddle?!

Question: Can YOU can answer this riddle!?
This took me a solid week to figure out!. If you can answer this, you might want to consider joining your local Mensa chapter!.

A man named Nicholas Pumpernickel lives in a seventeen-story apartment building!. This particular building is very empty, and Nicholas rarely ever sees other people in the halls or in the elevator!. Everyday, he takes the elevator down to the ground floor and goes to work!. Once he finishes with work each day, he returns to his building!. If it happens to be sunny outside, Nicholas will always take the elevator to the tenth floor, and then he will take the stairs back up to his apartment on the seventeenth!. But if it is raining, he will take the elevator all the way to the seventeenth floor!. Why!?

Hint: it's not a matter of choice, Nicholas MUST take the elevator only halfway on sunny days!.

You can ask questions, and I'll add on comments answering them if you like :-) (But only yes or no's!)Www@Enter-QA@Com

This is an easy riddle!. Almost everybody above me is correct!.

You can find this in any Lateral Thinking book, which a lot of people have!.

He is a man of shorter, eh, stature, and he has to take the stairs, because no one else lives that far up, so he has to take the stairs, as no one is there to push the button for him!. He can take it to the seventeenth floor when it rains, because he has an umbrella, and he can hit '17'!.

Don't you think it would be easier for him to just carry a cane!? lol!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

He's a midget!. If it's sunny, he can only reach up to 10 then will walk!. If he has an umbrella because it's raining, he can hit the top button!. And going down is easy because the ground floor is at the bottom!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

The building is has a glass elevator on the side and on sunny days the elevator becomes too hot and thus he needs to walk to rest of the wayWww@Enter-QA@Com

he has an umbrella to hit the tenth floor because hes a midgit!. When it's raining hes using the umbrella not to get wet, and so he can only reach the 7th floor!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

He is a dwarf and on the way down he can reach the button because its low but going up he can't UNLESS he has something to reach it with such as an umbrella (rain)Www@Enter-QA@Com

because he is a midget and when it's raining he take the umbrella!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

Hes a midget and he has an umbrella on the rainy days!. Which allows him to hit the top button on the elevator!.Www@Enter-QA@Com
