Frauen who walk into an elevator and "announce" the floor they expect someone to push for them.

I was visiting a sick friend at a hospital today and this woman just walked into the elevator and into the air said "8 please." I just looked at her... eventually she sighed and pushed it herself.

If I get on an elevator and someone is standing so close to the control panel they can reach the buttons more easily than I can, OF COURSE I tell them what floor I am going to.

My standard is whether I'd be able to smell their toothpaste.

by Anonymousreply 1210/11/2013

I've had men and women both ask me this question.

I find the general rule to be that if people are standing in front of the buttons/ the elevator is fairly full to full, there's nothing wrong with asking this. It's more awkward to maneuver around someone standing there.

Just yesterday I got on the elevator at work, it was staring to get full and I found myself standing right in front of the buttons, this lady squeezes on at the next floor and awkwardly stretches her arm around and in front of us just to push the button. I had to step back and bump into the person behind me so she wouldn't accidentally graze my crotch.

I would have been a lot less fuss if she'd asked me to push the button for her.

In short, this is a gender-unspecific phenomena and sometime the social situation calls for it to be the most logical course of action.

Don't some elevator manufacturers offer high-tech voice-recognition for floor selection in addition to the low-tech buttons?

Did I dream this?

I work in a neighborhood that has to have more entitled people (men and women) per capita then any other place in NY, and I have yet to encounter this. If this goes on I'm quite surprised they haven't adapted it yet.

If somebody gets on an elevator after me and I'm standing in front of the panel, I [italic]ask them[/italic] what floor they would like. Am I the only one who does this?

No I ask to. How some people on this board make it past lunch without killing themselves is beyond me.

I do that too, R19. And if I have to ask someone to push the button for me because I can't reach it, I say (with a smile) "Could you please press 6 for me? Thank you!".

by Anonymousreply 2110/11/2013

Dude, people usually do that because YOU'RE STANDING BY THE BUTTONS. I bet you're even crowding the buttons, like they belong to you. Either step the fuck away from the buttons or shut the fuck up and press the requested button, you idiot.

DL Daytime Crew:

You care to weigh in on the Great Elevator Button Pushing Outrage?

by Anonymousreply 3310/12/2013

In my office building, everyone understands that the person standing by the buttons will ask, "Floor?" or "Where you headed?" or just turn and give an expectant look with their hand up at the buttons. This is helpful when you are toting a a laptop, lunch bag and have a coffee cup in hand, and don't want to lean in and dump it all on the person standing right by the buttons.

It's called civilization.

by Anonymousreply 3410/12/2013

Etiquette dictates that the person closest to the buttons should push them. If that were you, OP, then you are the rude bitch.

by Anonymousreply 3510/12/2013

OP, are you male?

You have my total compassion. You should never be mistreated by a stranger in public.

This is totally unfair. Perhaps you should start a petition. Your plight is intolerable.

by Anonymousreply 3610/12/2013

What R8 said.

If I'm in front of the buttons, I'll ask the person who gets on "What floor?" and I get a "Thank you" for it. If they're in front of them, I say the number and "please." Thank goodness I've yet to encounter some of you prissy queens who go off about the most innocuous things.

It's one thing if the person is rude about it, but Christ, learn how to live in a civilized society. Not everything is about "entitlement," especially if the person said "please."

by Anonymousreply 3710/12/2013

Regardless if they say please or not, I do dislike the expectation that people think one person is obligated to press the floor button for them. When I get on an elevator, I push my button and stand back. There have been times when I see people do the same damn thing, so I know they are just like me - independent. Of course, there are many times when polite people ask 'Which floor?' and I thankfully tell them the number and thank them. I did this a few times and it's ok when I'm in the mood.

But when I get on an elevator and it's just me and some other person and she/he expects me to push the button for them, I pretend I didn't hear them. Press your own button especially when it's not crowded. It only takes 1.5 seconds to lean in after that person and press the button yourself.

I have the opposite happen. The entitled short shrewish stylishly dressed woman marches onto the elevator with no concern for the control panel. I say, "What floor?" and she muscles everyone out of the way to push the button herself because the alternative, acknowledging me by telling me what floor, is apparently too much of a status check to her dignity. Indeed, she acts as if I stalked her when all I have to do to see where she's going is wait for her to press the button.

It's funny because I am a middle-aged woman and if I am near the elevator buttons I always ask the person entering the elevator what floor they want. If someone does the same for me I always tell them "thank you". Weird, I never knew this as controversial.

by Anonymousreply 8510/12/2013

Geez people, if you just shart in your pants you can have the elevator all to yourself. Then the button-pushing issue ceases to be a problem.

by Anonymousreply 8710/12/2013

When I get on an elevator, I immediately stand by the control panel. I'm a woman. Any security expert will tell you to do this so that you can push emergency buttons, just in case. Also, if I get on an elevator and a man is standing by the panel, I ask him to push the button as I move to the opposite side. It's for my personal safety. You can't just practice caution on occasion; boarding an elevator is a dangerous moment for any woman.

Those of you who get upset over women doing this obviously don't realize they're doing it for their safety. When I get on an elevator, I want to ensure that I get off of it. If you don't want to push buttons for others, step away from the control panel. It's that simple.

Some of you are so bitter and nasty, I wonder what your problem is.

by Anonymousreply 8810/12/2013

I have never had a problem pushing a fucking button for someone in an elevator when asked. It's just simple common courtesy. If I'm standing by the buttons and someone gets on then I'll ask them "which floor?" It's not that hard.

R88, you're as weird as the so-called men in here. I'm a woman and have never given a second's thought to my safety when boarding an elevator. Neither have I ever thought twice about pushing a button for someone when asked, or imagined that the queen standing next to the control panel was secretly boiling with rage because I asked him to push a button for me.

by Anonymousreply 9410/12/2013

I don't know if I'm overly polite or just a control freak, but if no one else has done so, I try to position myself near the elevator control panel and use the DOOR OPEN button to hold the door open when people enter and/or leave. If other people are leaving on the same floor as I (or when we get to the main floor and everyone is exiting), I always hold the door open until the last person (other than myself) is out, and then hold the door open with my hand until the first person for the next trip enters.

Last week I rolled my eyes at this thread but then IT HAPPENED TO ME!!

I wouldn't call her a Frau, she was more like a cracked out whore, but I work in a building with a lot of law firms and you never know who's going to show up in the elevator. I've never seen her before so I'm guessing she was a client.

Description: somewhere between 18 and 60, but I'm guessing she was a pretty busted up 40. White woman, gaunt, overly tanned, overly processed stringy "blonde" hair, trashy looking clothes (ratty jeans--not fashionably weathered but old and dirty).

I'm waiting for the elevator and vaguely aware that someone has shuffled nearby to wait as well. I get in first because I was right there, she ambles in behind me and mumbles something as I push my floor.

I step away and realize a Datalounge frau-ism is unfolding before me. "Excuse me?" "Twenty-fhyscn". This whole time she's head down absorbed with her smart phone.

Since I still had no idea what she said and the elevator was already moving, I said "I'm sorry"? She looks up at me, cackles, and yells "TWENTY THREE!" Now, at this point we have each claimed a corner of the elevator. We're more or less equidistant from the button panel. I look at her, she cackles again, and I push the 23 button. Her head is back down in her phone before I've even returned to my spot (as far from her as I could get).

Weird. I wouldn't say it was just self-entitlement as she was quite "off" besides that. Drunk or high, or coming down. This was at 8:55 am.
