Yes. Elevators according to me are the wierdest places to be on Mother Earth. Like who would want to spend few minutes of his entire life stuck up amid a bunch of complete strangers?
Why don't people understand? If he has to go to the 4th floor from the 2nd, why does he come all the way to the 1st floor, pick me up and then head towards the 4th? Like are we bonded in anyway that you are showing me this concern?
Why is it that people forget their existence and stand like a bizzare statue until their destined floor arrives? Their senses are regained only when the door is about to close and they exit giving free elbow and knee massages to their fellow mates.
Why? Why do people have to talk in ear-splitting tones in that small room? Like no one is interested in your newly wed brother's honeymoon trip or on your left leg which had a spasm the day before or on how bad your wife cooks.
Why is it that people do not use deodorants? For God's sake they were invented for people like you. Please understand and consider the health and well being of the fellow humans.
Why do poeple face the other way and stand in that extremely awkward position facing the rest of us? Don't you understand, you have to turn the other way around and not let your awful breath on the person standing in front of you. He has a family too. His son must be waiting for him to bring that remote control car that he had promised a week ago. So please. Do not kill him!
And what do you mean by 'STOP, STOP, STOP', when you hadn't even selected the floor where you are destined to be in? Do you expect the lift to get converted into a smart device and read your voice command? Or do you expect us to put our precious lives at stake and hang midway by stopping it for you? Or do you expect us to open the door and throw you out without worrying about where your bones would land?
Like why can't a person control his gassy tummy for a period of 2 minutes? Why the hell do you expect others to enjoy getting a sneak peak of what you had early that morning? For God's sake these gassy people must be banished from this planet I say.
And it goes on...
So these were some of the experiences I had come across. Have you faced such annoying situations in an elevator? If so then you are free to rant about it below ;)
