Look at some of the comments from my Uber Pool experience (post 1 & 2). No doubt, they are among the finalists for the 2018 Festivus Airing of Blog Grievances. If you liked/hated me there, what will you do here?
When I walk into an elevator, I press the door open button, wait for anyone else to come in, and then select my floor. After that, I step back to a corner and prepare for the awkward right of passage. Occasionally, I’ll be in the corner and the person who just stepped in will ask me to press a floor for him/her. I have no problem doing this but question why anyone would ask someone to do so, especially if there is only two people in the elevator? I can understand when the elevator is full and, by default, the one closest to the buttons becomes the elevator operator. Beyond those circumstances, I think it is a bit presumptuous to ask someone to press the button when that person is plenty capable. It’s even more annoying when they assume that you should do this for them.
And that’s my complaint of the week. What do you think? Going up?
