The One Elevator Trick Every Traveler Should Know Mike Richard September 21, 2007 Features, Odds + Ends Fellas, if you’re looking to woo the ladies out there, nothing works like a slick elevator trick. Am I right? Hollaaa!© Copyright Hemmy.netAnyway, if you’re sick of having to stop at sixteen different floors every time you hop on an elevator, try this simple trick:Press the button for the floor you’re going to and the “Close Door” button at the same timeHold for five secondsThat’s it!This puts the elevator into “Express Mode”, meaning it won’t stop at any floor but the one you’re going to.There’s apparently some debate as to whether or not it works (see comments here). For me, I’ve tried it mainly in Otis elevators and it’s worked like a dream. I use it on the elevator in my building every day. Of course, it’s difficult to definitively prove that it works, but I’ve yet to stop for another person since I started doing it over a year ago.Selfish? Absolutely. But it’s still pretty damned cool, no? Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* WebsiteLet\'s Make Sure You\'re Human ... *Time limit is exhausted.
