What Do You Do When You’re Alone in the Elevator?

ElevatorYou’re tired. You’re alone on the empty elevator. Leaning against the back wall, you cross  your ankles to get comfortable, looking down at the ground.

  1. What are you going to do when your fist stop picks up two strangers?
  2. Two more stops fill the elevator with five more strangers. What are they all doing when the doors close?
  3. What is impossible to do when you walk onto an elevator with passengers?

ANSWERS

  1. You will uncross your feet, keep you head up for the entire ride, and move so that all three of you are equidistant from each other.
  2. Assuming they’re all strangers, all will be facing forward looking at the indicator showing which floor is next.
  3. When talking with a friend you’re comfortable with, you’ll tilt your head. But when getting onto an elevator full of strangers, it is impossible to tilt your head.
