Weird behaviors in work elevators

General elevator etiquette requires to face forward and keep to yourself. However, there have been some bizarre cases where employees do funny and weird things in elevators, for example change a baby's diaper inside the elevator at the workplace. While some behaviors are just unusual, a lot of behaviors have been regarded as being extremely annoying. Some weird behaviors include showing someone a rash and asking for a diagnosis, flossing teeth, clipping fingernails and using one's head to keep the elevator door open while the hands are full of papers. There have been instances of employees dancing throughout the elevator ride. On the rare ocassion, there have been fist fights in the elevator. When asked to identify the most annoying habits in elevators, employees often said that not holding the door open purposely when someone is approaching the elevator is the most annoying habit. Other annoying habits include talking too loudly on the cellphone, squeezing into a crowded elevator and cutting in line to get ahead of other people. Some workers feel that pushing the wrong button which makes the elevator stop at more floors than it should is also extremely annoying. Facing away from the elevator door, instead of toward the door like everyone else, is also regarding as being annoying.
