I work on the 24th floor of a 33 story office building. The parking structure I use is in the same building and occupies ten of the floors. I need to take two elevators two times a day, one to exit/enter the parking structure and one to/from the 24th floor.
Let’s discuss elevator etiquette shall we?
ü When the elevator door opens, WAIT for the people on it to exit. Don’t jump in there and plow the exiting passengers over. No courtesy = you are an ass.
ü If someone on the elevator says “hello” or “good morning/afternoon” to you, say it back. Otherwise, you look like a cranky ass.
ü Don’t fart in an elevator. We are all trapped in there and don’t want to deal with your stink bomb(s)! Don’t be a smelly ass (literally).
ü If there are a lot of people on the elevator and it stops to let more on, move towards the back and closer to your fellow passengers. Don’t stand like a brick wall and force everyone else to shuffle around you. You aren’t that important, you ass.
ü Don’t sigh loudly if your floor is higher than mine and I press a button that makes you stop (for a few seconds) on my floor. That makes me move veeeery slowly when I exit! I become an ass (but you deserve it).
ü Don’t talk about very personal things with your co-workers or friends. I don’t want to hear about the new rash you just discovered. I don’t want to hear about the great (or bad) sex you had last night. I don’t want to hear about your new hair plugs or boob job. Please keep this stuff to yourself. If you don't, you sound like a self-centered ass.
ü If someone is carrying a ton of stuff and their arms/hands are full, ask “what floor?” and push the damn button! Bad manners = you are an ass.
|CAN STOP BEING AN ASS!|
