Push the button for the floor I want to go to.

Then I calmly wait for my floor and exit the elevator.

That is it.

Nothing strange, mystical or slightly off color (because I know THEY are watching me through the ceiling grid).

I look upwards. Then I look around. Then I watch the doors close to see if anyone is coming in last second.
Me, too. If it's someone I don't like I just kind of watch them get closer as the doors slowly close.

Are you listening to your new iPod :confused:

No, THEY are because listening.:eek:

But I know THEY are powerless to harm me as long as I am wearing my Reynolds Wrap Cap.

What's really fun when you get into an empty elevator is, if it is small and you're tall enough, stretch out on the floor with your hands on one wall and your feet on the other. "Walk" up the side of the elevator. Just as the door opens, let go and scream. It will look like the elevator flew down the shaft and stopped suddenly, and now you are crashing to the ground. Anyone waiting to get in will freak out. What's really funny is to have one person stand by the door and another come crashing down behind him. This obviously doesn't work if no one is waiting.

I usualy pick my floor and wait to arrive at my floor. Pretty simple, really.

I jump up and down repeatedly until the alarm sounds.

Sometimes I do it when other people are on the elevator as well. One must taste one's mortality on occassion.....

As soon as the door closes...

I do a hand stand and see if I can hold it until I reach my floor.

I know, the floor is filthy, but it is a tradition for literally decades. As soon as I dapart from the elevator, I find the nearest washroom and wash my hands...

That is exactly what THEY want you to do.

Don't think that just because you aren't in the good ol' USofA that THEY aren't watching......

I'll have to remember that the next time I visit the US and get into an elevator. Maybe I should pick my nose or scratch myself ala J or smoke some pot or all of the above. I'm sure that Uncle Sam would love that.

well let me just say

I have a degree in fine art. I studied under some performance / conceptual artists with an emphasis on public/confrontational art. Oh and I have a thing for elevators. Set up a table chairs & stanchion in one and had a 4 course lunch (with a waiter). A realnice big one in a very toney office building. Piece was titled Lunch for the Upwardly Moble.

The Cold Cucumber/Yogurt salad and Carrot Vichycoise were amazing.

Fart and hope nobody gets in before I get out.
I do this right before I exit the elevator when I'm the only one in it. Nice welcoming environment for the people who step in after I leave. ;) If you time it just right they won't realize anything until after the doors close.

Ok, so you're not just some bad boy rock'n roll musician. You're a bad boy rock'n roll musician with a flair for the artistic impressions of elevators, right? Sounds nice.

Want to really confuse people in an elevator? Merely stand at the "front" of the elevator, and face the back. Nobody ever does this.
