Why would anyone want to confine themselves in a small room with four to five perfect strangers for a duration of about 20 seconds and why would they want to do this multiple times in a given day I dont know have you ever ridden an elevator before So youre standing on the first floor in Millet Hall at Wright State University you push a button and a metal door opens to reveal a 5 by 7 room You step in and the door closes they open again and you exit You look around at your new surroundings as you perceive a totally different floor than the one you just left this all happened in less than 20 seconds But what happened during those 20 seconds in that small room can anything be learned about yourself or about others First off what do people do in an elevator Well they check their watch look through their purse fiddle in their pockets whistle a short tune or they gaze and glance Oh my how they all gaze and glance And the beep ah yes one cannot forget the beep Every floor that is passed there is a beep and that beep comes from the small light display in the upper left hand corner of the elevator For every floor that goes by that small light changes to a different number and it beeps Elevator riders dont know it but they love that beep It is that very beep that saves them in their absolute moment of awkwardness they hear that beep and they gaze at those numbers They gaze so hard it hurts and in their minds they wish that this elevator would just hurry up and get them to their destination so they can just get on with their lives Riders of the elevator both hate and love that numbered light display They love it because it gives them something to stare at
