In the past couple of weeks, I've come across two addendums to my Elevator People article that I did awhile back.
Addendum # 1 - The "Chain of Consciousness Elevator Rider" - this is the guy who seems to consider himself to be the liason to all non-elevator riders across the world who have frequented a CJC elevator. He speaks his mind within the Nanosecond that the thought crosses it. Some examples:
"Boy, this elevator is crowded."
"Looks like we're going to be stopping on every floor."
"There's no personal space around here!"
"Huh. This elevator doesn't go all the way up to twelve."
"Guess we'll be crossing over at 10!"
Thanks man, but if we wanted commentary in our morning routine, we'd be TIVOing John Madden.
Addendum # 2 - The "Play It Off" Guy - this is the guy that accidentally stepped onto the elevator that's going down when he needed to be going up. He plays it cool and doesn't show that he's committed a tactical elevator error. He just smoothly hits the floor he wants (knowing that he'll have to go down to one and then ride back up) as if it was his plan all along. Yeah, this guy is an elevator veteran, and he isn't going to let you know that he's committed a faux pas. I saw an example of this today.
I don't want to embarrass anyone, so I'll just give him the pseudonym of Greg Couldhart.
