Elevator Fun


  • Whistle the first seven notes of "It's a Small World" incessantly.

  • Offer name tags to everyone getting on the elevator. Wear yours upside-down.

  • When at your floor, strain to yank the doors open, then act embarrassed when they open by themselves.

  • Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral.

  • Stare, grinning, at another passenger for a while, and then announce: "I've got new socks on!"

  • Sing "Mary had a little lamb" while continually pushing buttons.

  • Play the harmonica.

  • Say "Ding!" at each floor.

  • Blow spit bubbles.

  • Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

  • When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.

  • Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.

  • Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.

  • Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor you're on.

  • Hold the doors open and say you're waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say, "Hi Greg. How's your day been?"

  • Drop a pen and wait until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream, "That's mine!"

  • Bring a camera and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.

  • Move your desk in to the elevator and whenever someone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.

  • Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on ask them if they hear something ticking.

  • Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.

  • When the doors close, announce to the others, "It's okay. Don't panic, they open up again."

  • Call out, "group hug!", then enforce it.

  • Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask,"Got enough air in there?"

  • Wear a puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.

  • Listen to the elevator walls with your stethoscope.
