Cool Elevator Trick You Can Try Yourself

I hate getting into elevators that stop on every floor. I want to go where I want to go and everyone else can screw off! I also don't like riding in the elevator with anyone. Don't we all feel that way?

Apparently there is a trick you can do with all elevators that will allow you to do just that. If you hold down the right ones for the right amount of time the doors will close and the elevator will take you directly to your floor without stopping to pick anyone else up. They will just have to wait!

Now, I haven't tried this out myself as I haven't been anywhere recently that uses an elevator for more than two floors so I am not sure if this works or not. The next time I go to Horton Plaza Mall in downtown San Diego I will have to try it because their elevators are busier than all hell.

Enough about that. The buttons you need to push are the floor you want to go to while simultaneously pushing the door close button. You need to hold both down for 5 or 6 seconds and that should put the elevator into "express mode" bypassing all other floors.

Here is a video from Metacafe that explains it:

I am not too fond of this particular video because it doesn't prove that it works or not. That is why I want you to try it! Let me know if it works or not in the comments!
