Elevator Etiquette

Posted by Kevin on December 7, 2006

Come on, people.  Please.  I’m begging you.  Use some damn common sense, manners, and social etiquette when using the elevator!!

/rant on

When you’re waiting for the elevator and the door opens, it’s rather rude to just barge in without letting the people already in the elevator get out.  All you do is cause a people jam for everyone.  Move your dumbass aside for all of a few seconds that it will take for people to get off the elevator.

Guys, where are your manners?!?!   Didn’t your mother ever teach you to hold doors and such for the ladies?!  Ok, so it’s an elevator and not a door perse, but would it kill you to hold the elevator door from trying to close so the women could get on first?

And, folks, when you finally do get in the elevator, KNOW WHAT FRIGIN FLOOR YOU WANT!  You’ve had time to think about what floor you’re going to, so when you get in the elevator don’t stand there like an idiot trying to figure out which button is 4.  If it says 4, it’s the 4th floor.  Dumbass.

And don’t be that guy (or gal) who presses the wrong floor and makes everyone wait that much longer to get off the elevator.  Yup, when the elevator stops at the wrong floor we’ll all be looking at you because you can’t read numbers.

Today’s rant is brought to you by the two dumbasses at one of the buildings on campus today.  Using the busiest elevators in the entire place, not only did they rudely just barge on the elevator without letting people get out first, BOTH of them pressed the wrong floor because they couldn’t shut the fuck up for two seconds and pay attention.  They were also the only two people who thought it was funny.  I couldn’t help it.  I woke up one grumpy sumbitch this morning.  I had to say something.  So I casually mentioned how much the 4 must look like an 8.  The other people chuckled.  The two dumbasses gave me a go-to-hell look to which I responded with a great big smile.  Fuck ’em.
