If you say anything to the person with the finger glued to the DC button everyone pretends like nothing has happened. Locals have an amazing ability to remain deadpan when something is going awry.
aiya! finally a thread about this bs
i tried to tell my coworker from b4 NOT TO CLOSE THE FREAKING ELEVATOR DOOR unless u're ABSOLUTELY SURE nobody is behind u coming in. she just plainly replied me "oh that's my habit, i get in the elevator and press close"
i'm like F*** u dont do that ppl get squished. esp those old elevators that dont have those door sensors. THIS TOTALLY PISSES ME OFF. my shoulder got pretty bruised up cuz some idiot closed the freaking door on me when he SAW ME COMING.
Man, people have WAY too much time on their hands to be moaning about this!!
I have adopted the policy that if someone is running for the elavator i will keep it open to let them in, regardless of how many people in the elavator it annoys.
It's probably more likely that many locals got themeslved killed trying to force themselves into the closing MTR doors, rather than "unimaginable" 2 minute wait for the next one! Luckily, there is a second set of doors these days and a glass barrier.
Even is the signs are for mainland immigrants, I still enjoy them:
And finally my favorite sign from Outback steakhouse:
So, back to the original question: What is wrong with pressing the 'Close Door' button, as long as nobody is approaching the elevator or caught in the doors?
Seems to me to be the normal thing to do...
