Apparently, the state of elevator etiquette has gotten so out of hand that the people at ElevatorRules.Com decided to lay the ground rules for proper elevator behavior.
ElevatorRules lists the most important rules for different elevator-riding scenarios, so you'll always know what to do in every elevator-related situation. Sure, it's common sense, but you'll be surprised at what you can learn.
I've summarized the top 5 tips for those of you who frequent elevators:
- If you are going up or down one floor, use the stairs.
- Stand away from the doors while waiting to board and wait until everyone has exited before entering.
- Do not have loud, annoying conversations or sing while in the elevator.
- If you are sick, consider boarding an empty elevator so you won't get others sick.
- Here's one that is more difficult for those of us who don't see: do not re-press the call button or a floor button that someone else has already pressed.
