An elevator is a place where, at times, there are many strange, curious and even uncomfortable situations. The absurd conversations are another of the most typical moments inside an elevator. Do you want to know what are the most embarrassing stories that can happen while you go up or down? Pay close attention.
Although they are spaces in which we do not spend much time, the elevators gather the qualities necessary for all sorts of anecdotes to happen. Being a site of small dimensions, our personal space is sometimes invaded. This already implies that any situation becomes an uncomfortable situation. However, there are facts of all kinds, unusual, curious and funny. Let's review the most common:
1. Meet with your neighbor
Living in community always leaves us stories to tell. And the elevator is the ideal place for it. Who has not met that heavy neighbor who wants to know everything and asks where he comes from and where he goes. That person who tries to talk all the way to his floor and does it with personal questions that he does not feel like answering, so his answers are a lot of monosyllables like "yes" or "no" accompanied by a subtle and uncomfortable smile. And it is that life brings us together many times with whom we do not want anything to be. People there are lots, but types of neighbors seem to only have one. The heavy.
2. Getting stuck
It is one of the most uncomfortable situations that can happen. Especially if you are claustrophobic and you get stuck alone. Nerves, sweating, anguish ... Other times, the story does not go so badly. Luck is on his side that day and he can leave him trapped with the person he likes and well, who knows? It may come with your phone number and an appointment. However, avoid by all means get caught in the elevator with your boss. It is not going to be that over having a bad time, leave with more work for home. What is a strange situation is being trapped in the elevator with some stranger. From this situation you can get rid of a lot of stories that, perhaps, count together.
3. Go tight as a sardine
He enters the elevator and there is no one. However, the invention makes a thousand stops before arriving at his plant. During that time, it only rises people, but nobody stays in the intermediate plants. Everyone wants to go up and space is getting smaller. You, as the first has entered, is relegated to the bottom of the elevator. Pressed and tight. When he finally arrives at his apartment, he has to squeeze his way through the crowd in order to reach the exit door. Finally, you can breathe and get some fresh air. Of course, he is silent and does not notice that the elevator carries a lot of traffic so as not to be the only one to go through that drink.
4. Your neighbors' pets
He enters the elevator quietly and his neighbor is accompanied by his beautiful pet. It's not that he does not like animals. But that they smell their parts and they are thrown upon you as soon as you enter, it is not pleasant at all. He does his best to be affectionate with the animal and to disguise his shame. But, suddenly, something strange smells. His neighbor carries a small bag in his hand with the bowels of his faithful friend. He looks hopefully at the floor marker and unfortunately still has three left to get out of there. A trip in the elevator of the most comfortable, no doubt.
5. Ventosidades and other gases
This situation is more common than it seems. And in such a small place it is very difficult to disguise. If you go two in the elevator and know that you have not been can enter the laughter and can not repress. Which makes the situation funny for you and embarrassing for the one who airs the air. A copious meal rages not just below. The chorizo smells are also very typical when you get into the lift after lunch. Also, there are times when people try to get out of the way anyway. So more than one would say, "Ow what a bad smell, right?" Nothing like any excuse to start a lively conversation. At other times, babies leave very delicate smells inside the elevator. Her mother knows that it is her turn to change the child, but she says nothing. It's a boy. With that, everything is already said.
6. The graciosillo
There's nothing like getting in the elevator with the typical graceful turn who tries to be nice with questions such as "Can you imagine that the elevator is falling? What brand is an Astarlifts. However, he is not happy with that, but after seeing his outline of smile begins to jump and jump. In short, it makes you want to catch him and strangle him in the elevator itself. But as he is a very civic person, he is limited to imagining it in his head while counting up to ten or a hundred. It depends on your patience.
7. They try to leave you on the ground
Return from work to home and see that your neighbor enters the portal of the building just a few seconds before you. She saw him and accelerated his pace. He does not even wait for you with the open door on the street. Running, entering and approaching the elevator. He presses the button like a madman to leave him on the ground, but the doors do not close and gives him time to arrive. They look at each other. They say hi to each other. But the trip does not give more words because it has a monumental anger. You just realize that your neighbor does not want to travel with you in an elevator. Will he feel bad? He arrives at his flat and when he is alone, he devotes an endless number of brave gestures of contempt and rage that, of course, nobody sees. Does not matter. At least, he is relaxed and satisfied.
8. Fixed and top-down glances
Sometimes we have to climb the elevator to a place where we do not know anyone. An office, a shopping center, the house of some friends ... The looks are the most typical and there are people who do not cut a hair. It feels watched, with the eyes of others upon you. There is always that characteristic person who does a top-down review directly and brazenly. And when he finds that he is looking at him, he also smiles at him in a "hello" plan. He leaves the elevator and the first thing he looks for is a mirror to see if he has something funny on his face or stuck on his back. You never know. Looking is not always done by pure gossip. Sometimes it is a subtle warning that you are going around the world with a snot in the nose, for example.
9. The person you like is inside
There is nothing worse than getting into the elevator without getting dressed, with comfortable clothes or after you have gone to run and match the person you like and whom you never see when you look your best. The colors rise up the cheeks, the heat becomes more intense. He does not say or do anything. He wants the earth to swallow him and even thinks about getting off earlier to avoid the unpleasant situation. As he leaves the elevator, he hurries to smolder his armpit, lest at any time he has left the poor man on top of the bad pints. The next day, he tries to match at the same time, but arranged for a wedding. You have to make up for the scare.
10. Getting caught in the mirror
He's alone in the elevator, about to party at night. With his best face and his best finery. It has taken him more than two hours to prepare, so the mirror inside is his best ally. He looks at himself and looks back. The hair placed. Make-up well put on. Clean teeth ... The door opens and you are caught in the middle of the scene of "how handsome I am and what kind I have". He only has to smile and pass the drink. Even so, cast a sideways glance at the mirror as it reaches your destination. The case is to take good advantage of the trip.
As we have seen, elevators are an invention that not only allow us to go from one floor to another, avoiding having to climb hundreds of stairs, but also provide us with moments and anecdotes of all kinds. Embarrassing, friendly and even rare situations. Something more to count on at work at coffee time. Because the truth is that more than one of us has happened to one of these situations. Stories that we rushed to have friends and family. And is that in the elevators, strange as it may seem, not only talk about time.
