    I always call out floors very clearly

    I enjoy my job very much. I meet all kinds of people and talk to everyone. Many people ask me
    questions, and I give them the necessary information. I try to be very helpful. I always call out floors
    very clearly, and I am constantly on the move. Most men take off their hats in my car, and
    sometimes I have to tell passengers to put out their cigarettes. Some people smile at me, but
    others just ignore me. In fact, my life can be described as consisting of a series of “ups” and
    “downs.”
    What does the sentence in bold mean?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: I always call out floors very clearly

    The 'I' is a lift/elevator attendant. S/he announces the number of each floor as it is reached.
