Door Close, Door Close, Door Close
Someone recently told me about some comedian who jokes about how New Yorkers are the only ones who get into elevators and immediately begin hitting the "Door Close" button. How true! I myself am a fan of the old Door Close Move (which is this: get in elevator, select floor, press Door Close...three times...it makes it work faster! That's what I choose to believe anyway). I don't want any more people than necessary on an elevator! This is BOTS for God's sake!
Today I decided to take note of who pressed the Door Close button as I rode up and down in my building all day (hey, I have a LEGAL RIGHT to a smoke break...MULTIPLE smoke breaks). Wouldn't you know that EVERY SINGLE PERSON (minus one weirdo who looked like she was from Waukesha, Wisconsin so she doesn't count) that I saw get into the elevator pressed their floor and then pressed Door Close....repeatedly. One guy did press Door Close, but when a woman stuck her arm in the doors as they were shutting, he quickly hit Door Open. I was impressed with his hand to eye coordination, because I can't tell you how many times I've been in the same situation and accidentally hit Door Close instead of Door Open. Habit, I guess.
You knew New York City was exclusive....you just didn't know how far it went!
