I used to have to go to a building full of law offices every day as part of a job I did right out of college, working as a liaison between the district court and the state supreme court. I took great joy at riding those elevators facing everyone else on the elevator. It made them all uncomfortable as hell because it was in direct violation of the unwritten rule that you are supposed to face forward and stare at the numbers on the floor-counter as they go by, not face everyone else on the elevator and stare at them. It always bugged the hell out of them, but not once did anyone ever actually say anything to me about it for fear of being deemed impolite in such a closed space. Good times!

I usually just do a silent fart, and look at someone else like they did it.
I hate people who stomp thier feet in elevators :o
hhaha! funny ish :D :up:

I personally enjoy staring at the buttons as if something's going to happen, or looking at the little arrows as if I didn't know I was going up or down :confused:
I just wait for the elevator to go down or up and look ahead at the door.
Truly you are an expert at deadpan humor.

I hate elevators, I hate people in my own personal space. :cmad:
not me . . . I'd just pull some Die Hard shiz and maneuver through the ventilation system to escape . . .
that's much less bad ass though . . .
You can have relations with a lady friend. :up:
oh but I do have to always be bad ass . . . I wish this was a choice but it's simply the way I'm wired . . .

So even if there was a major babe in the elevator you are still going to use the die hard way?
