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.
