We’ve all been in an elevator hammering the ‘close door’ button trying to get the thing closed before more people pile in. Turns out the button is a SCAM!
You may be thing pffft…suuuure….But it’s true! This is according to the director of the National Elevator Industry trade group.
The buttons used to work. But the elevator manufacturers had to disable them to make sure there was enough time for someone in a wheelchair or with a cane to get in on time.
So why do they still put them in there? Because it’s tradition and ti makes us feel powerful. We just LOVE those buttons!
