This is one of the funniest things on Listology.

Heh heh. Thanks. This list is great because you can visualize it so easily and it's just so ridiculous. An elevator is a unique place where you can get reactions from people because they can't just walk away. They're forced to act in some way, even if it's just a facial expression.

Were you the one who wrote that chain letter? :O

Or did you just transcribe it from email to list?

Meh, either way, hilarious list.

I have a few suggestions...actually, would it be OK if I cloned this list and added all of mine onto the bottom? I have about 30 more...

My cloned list with a bunch of additions

Let me know if you want me to take it down, this list was your idea (and a very excellent one at that :) ), after all.

Oh, no way. As I posted on your new list, I really enjoyed the additions. Take the torch and drive on, mein.

Thanks :) +endorses

Haha you can visualize it... Classic!

I was at a conference once where this guy wheeled a harp onto the elevator and performed live elevator music for a few hours... He was joined by a few other people who had instruments, but eventually the hotel staff made them stop.

I had a friend, a professional business lady. Whenever she found herself getting on a crowded elevator, she got on, waited for the doors to close, and facing the other riders would say "I suppose you're all wondering why I called you here today?"
