THE LIGHTER SIDE

Fun Things to Do in an Elevator

  • When there’s only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn’t you.
  • Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
  • Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.
  • Call the Psychic Hot-line from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor you’re on.
  • Hold the doors open and say you’re waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say, “Hi Greg. How’s your day been?”
  • Drop a pen and wait until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream, “That’s mine!”
  • Bring a camera and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.
  • Move your desk into the elevator and whenever someone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.
  • Lay down a Twister mat and ask people if they’d like to play.
  • Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on ask them if they hear something ticking.
  • Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.
  • Ask, "Did you feel that?"
  • Stand really close to someone, sniffing them occasionally.
  • When the doors close, announce to the others, “It’s okay. Don’t panic, they open up again.”
  • Swat at flies that don’t exist.
  • Tell people that you can see their aura.
  • Call out, "Group hug!" then enforce it.
  • Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering “Shut up, all of you, just shut up!”
  • Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, “Got enough air in there?”
  • Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
  • Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce in horror, “You’re one of THEM” and back away slowly.
  • Wear a puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.
  • Listen to the elevator walls with your stethoscope.
  • Make explosion noises when anyone presses a floor button.
  • Stare, grinning at another passenger for a while, and then announce, “I have new socks on.”
  • Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, “This is my personal space.”
