Default People who press the elevator button when already lit up.

Why do y'all do it?

You see it is already pressed, was my press not good enough? Do you think you have the magic touch?

If you had pressed the elevator button properly the first time you wouldn't be stopping to pick me up.

The button on an elevator works the same as the fast forward button on your DVR. Push it once for 2x speed, twice for 3x speed, three times for 5x speed.

Its more of a mental routine, you come to the elevator, you press the button. And this is especially likely if you use elevators where theres no light after you push the button. Get used to pushing the button every time you come to an elevator and it's hard to not do it, unless you purposely think not to.

If I see it lit, I know it's already pushed.

The one's I hate the most. It might be like 27 people waiting for an elevator, and some person comes through, says excuse me to everyone to get by the button, than pushes it ... That seriously deserves an ass whoopin.

No, I can't say that this bothers me......then again I don't suffer from PMS so I don't get all emotional like that.

If that was meant to be a joke for a stand up comedy routine, drop it.

Black Jerry Seinfeld would have been a hit in the 90's.

Op that makes me think about it too. I think is because people get desperate about leaving and think that's going to help make it faster.
