The Ups and Downs of Elevator Etiquette


Do you hold the elevator door if someone’s coming or frantically push the “close” button and keep going sans guilt or worry?

How long should you talk to someone inside an elevator and what kinds of things are acceptable to say in that wildly concentrated and awkward period of time?

And exactly where inside the elevator should you position yourself to make your ride the most carefree and low maintenance?

These and other airborne issues are deftly addressed in p.r. lady Susan Blond‘s short, informative video of elevator ups and downs.

She really tells you which buttons to push and which to studiously avoid.

The only tip I couldn’t relate to is the one about always saying hello to your elevator operator by name.

Mine doesn’t have a name–he doesn’t exist!
