while it is dumb, since you were at the back of the elevator, if you were the closest to the buttons, it'd be understandable (saves reaching across people to the buttons)
I understand what you are saying. In other cases, if it was a lot of people, then I can see her not able to press it. It was just we were the only 2, and also, when she walked in, she could have press the button before walking to the back.

I wouldn't mind if people were polite about it, saying, "could you press 2 for me?" or "could you press 2 for me please," but her tone was made me type this post. Like it was my job to press the number for her.
Time! Time! Time is what turns kittens into cats.

Don't teach me a lesson; all I learn is that you are an asshole.

This. Is it so hard to say a few more little words to get someone to do, what is in essence, a favor for you?

I get wound up when people press the wrong call button, i.e. up when they want to go down. It interrupts the existing journey & means they have to wait longer, but so does everyone else...

Good thing those people don't have to ride it out to the end of the line and deal with the Hatfield parking garage. There's like 5-6 floors there!!!! They'd never get home.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That's awesome....love it!

I have, on occasion, deliberately "missed" the button for the floor they asked for if I'm alone in the elevator and someone does that. And then I offer to fix it and miss again. Clumsy fat fingers you know.

She says, "2". I give her a "are you kidding me?" look. She repeats herself, "2".
That's when you say "I'm sorry, the elevator's voice-recognition module is only recognizing Portuguese until we get the next update installed. You'll have to go ahead and push the button."

At least with some elevators...you occasionally get to see people get their comeuppance. How? Some have doors that open a bit differently. That is, a few at the Carnegie Library/Museum look like a "normal" elevator. You go in through the usual large doors. However, when you reach your floor...a much smaller door on the *side* opens to let you out. There was a reason that was done...but it escapes me now. Anyway, it was always amusing to be riding the elevator with my dad...and seeing other users occasionally falling on their asses. They'd lean on the 'wall,' and would topple when the 'wrong' door opened

Back in New York I had people be nice and press the button for me. I don't expect anyone to do it. There are very few elevator operators out there now. Other than them, its not someone's job to press a shiny button to go up or down.

See I would wait until it got to my floor then as I am walking out I would press all the buttons except the one the lazy person wanted and walk away.
