If I'm on the elevator and see someone coming, I will hit the door close button

Because I hate riding in the elevator with other people, unless I absolutely have no other choice. I also live on a high floor and I want a straight shot to my apartment and not be bothered with all the stops.

I hate elevators that talk to you.

I vote for a "Slam Door Violently Like A Bitchy Queen" option.

Well, aren't you a selfish little bitch. Grow a pair and be polite. Someday you might need help from one of the people you do wrong by.

Most "close" buttons on elevators don't do anything. Seriously, google it.

And when you're approaching and elevator they don't hold it for you, you probably call them an asshole.

I've memorized what makes and models they work on, and there's an emergency code on several models to force a door-shut.

I always keep a supply of ready intestinal gas on hand and wait until they get on to release it.

I just grind away on my briefcase and moan.

R4 is correct, door close buttons on elevators do not really work. They are dummy buttons, just like the cross walk light change buttons. Just there to give you a sense of control. Why, I don't know.

Um, no. Close door buttons do work in most Manhattan elevators. Not wanting anyone to accompany you on said elevator is so Anna Wintour.

I work on the 39th floor and there are a couple of co-workers I'd rather not ride alone with, so if I see them waiting to go down I'll duck into the restroom or pretend I forgot something at my desk. Doesn't always work though.

Why do the gays tend to be such misanthropes and anti-social??

by Anonymousreply 1211/13/2012

If you want the elevator door to shut, jump up and down one time. The elevator thinks it's full and the door shuts.

I'm tempted but I do not. I realize the benefits of the common good to myself as well as others. No big wup- just more efficient use of elevators that helps all (including me).

If everyone did what you do OP- life in your building would be less pleasant.

Then this is an anonymous site so folks like you can confess their obstructive behavior. Try it the other way an perhaps you will make some friends or not feel as much at war with the world.

Not "anti-social," rather, they are not sociable. Anti-social is when they hold the elevator door for someone, sets fire to them, and then jumps out as the door closes.

OP, you get points from me for honesty! Probably tons of other people are like you.

Walk lights work too, at least here in Boston. You won't get a Walk light unless you press the button.

The door close button is a placebo for impatient assholes.

It's how we fooled Roz into thinking Mr. Hart was in the office.

On some models, yes R19. Some models actually have working door close/open buttons.
