Elevator Etiquette

January 11, 2008 08:45 AM

The Rule: You let ladies go first when getting on an empty elevator.  But when you're getting off a crowded elevator, the person who gets off first is the one closest to the door.

You do not slam yourself up against the wall so the ladies can try to stumble past you.

You do not snicker when the other man who's standing closest to the door knows the rules, and try to make him look like he's not being considerate of the ladies.  He's being considerate by not blocking them in.  He's also being considerate by wearing an undershirt to work, so while we're talking etiquette, you need to be wearing one.  Chest hair is not allowed at the office. 


One more, when waiting for an elevator and the door opens, let everyone off who wants off before jamming yourself into the elevator and making everyone squeeze around you.

My pet peeve.
Why are people always shocked when the door opens and there are already people in the elevator?

I don't know why people do that either. Stand back from the doors, people.
