Elevator Label Tips

The elevator is a space so small that it brings people so close that a less polite attitude can seem extremely rude. With this in mind, we have listed 8 tips for working with elevators This way, you don't risk worrying about who shares the elevator with you.

1? Be cordial

The first tip is to be polite whenever possible. Greet people with a good morning, a good afternoon, or a good night. Warn when the lift is rising or falling, if necessary. Let people out first before you get on the elevator.


2? Carry your pet on your lap

When you have your pet, prefer to carry them on your lap. This way you avoid disturbing others or putting them in an uncomfortable situation.

Have you ever wondered if the pet is urinating or biting someone? Always keep the animal on your lap. Also, check the building's animal policy. In some buildings they are not allowed to enter the elevator.

3? Avoid kidding

Joking around or talking to other people using the elevator can be a nice way to interact, but it's often uncomfortable. So avoid.


4? Keep an eye on the kids

If you have children or toddlers in the family who will use the elevator with you, be aware of this. Children can start jumping over or moving other people's items. In this case do not allow. Ideally, advise the child before they get into the elevator and give them tips on how to behave.

5? Do not exceed the person limit

If the elevator is too full, try not to squeeze into other people, especially if there are already the maximum number of people in the elevator. The best thing to do is wait. Squeezing them together in a small space is cumbersome and dangerous. We also recommend staying as close to other people as possible. Avoid getting too close as it can be uncomfortable for others.

6? Avoid intimacy with your partner

Stroking your boyfriend and giving hot kisses is good, but in the privacy of a more intimate place. Doing such things in the elevator can be embarrassing for others. And remember: many elevators have cameras.


7? Don't speak loudly or scream

Another attitude that can disturb those in the elevator with you is talking too loudly and getting excited. When you are talking to someone, keep the volume down so that only you and the other person can hear what they are talking about.

8th? Help those who need it

In addition to these settings, you can also offer to help those in need. Elderly and visually impaired people may need guidance or help getting on, off and using the lift. Be nice and work together.
