Let’s assume you are running late for your meeting and you enter
a crowded elevator. You need to go to the 14th floor ASAP. You dream of going directly to your floor instead of stopping for everyone else’s. Wouldn’t that be just great? Impolite, but great, right?
Well, there is a Genius Shortcut that you can use in most elevators.
Yes, I know! How come so few people actually know about this?
Anyway, the trick is to push the button to close the doors at the same time as the floor you directly want to go to. So, in this example, it is the 14th floor. Just look at the picture if you are a more visual type 🙂
Why does it work? While some elevators require a key, others are configured to get into “Express Mode” when the “close doors”-button and one of the floor-buttons are pressed simultaneously. Most paramedics know this (or should!), so they get faster to the right floor in case of an emergency.
It is a great lifehack that I discovered many years ago at Darknet, but it amazes me that still only a few people know about it…
So, I invite you to give it a try!
