Fun Things To Do On An Elevator

  1. Just to pass the time . . .


    1 - When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.


    2 - Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.


    3 - Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.


    4 - Call the Psychic Hotline from your mobile phone and ask if they know which floor you're on.


    5 - Hold the doors open and say you're waiting for your friend. After awhile, let the doors close and say, "Hi Greg. How's your day been?"


    6 - Drop a pen and wait until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream "That's mine!"


    7 - Bring a camera and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.


    8 - Move your desk in to the elevator and whenever someone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.


    9 - Lay down a Twister mat and ask people if they'd like to play.


    10 - Place a box in the corner, and when someone gets on ask them if they hear something ticking.


    11 - Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.


    12 - Ask, "Did you feel that?"


    13 - Stand really close to someone, sniffing them occasionally.


    14 - When the doors close, announce to the others, "It's okay. Don't panic, they open up again."


    15 - Swat at flies that don't exist


    16 - Tell people that you can see their aura.


    17 - Call out, "group hug!" - then enforce it.


    18 - Grimace painfully while smaking your forehead and muttering, "Shut up, all of you, just shut up!"


    19 - Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, "Got enough air in there?"


    20 - Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.


    21 - Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce in horror, "You're one of THEM!" and back away slowly.


    22 - Wear a sock puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.


    23 - Listen to the elevator walls with your stethoscope.


    24 - Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.


    25 - Stare, grinning at another passenger for a while, and then announce "I have new socks on."


    26 - Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, "This is my personal space!"

    Excellent! I liked the stethescope one and the table one.

    Here's a few I thought of:

    If there is just yourself and one other in the lift, stand that little bit too close to them.

    When a person gets in and presses for a certain floor, tell them, "I wouldn't go there mrs/mr!" sounding serious, shaking your head and huffing through your teeth.

    When you're in the lift by yourself, get totally naked and just stand there calmly when someone gets in, nod and say, "Alright mate."
    Or start to get to changed and say, "I'm late for work."

    Get into the lift, with dark glasses and a white stick. Fumble for the floor you want, ask for help, saying you can't see and then proceed to get the paper out and start to read it.

    When it's completley silent, say to someone, "This one's always getting stuck."

    You can always add to the above, "In fact, I had the fire brigade out last week. Stuck in 3 hours I was. They had to PULL me out."

    Get in the lift and press every button, then say, "Can't quite decide which floor I fancy."

    You can always get a friend in on it. Start discussing the variable highly infectious diseases you have, then sneeze.

    There is always the classic fart. You can add, "Oooo, now that was a ripe one!"

    You could start a variation on a theme on that one.
    For example:
    *Putting your bed in there, get under the covers and as soon as anyone gets in, say "do you mind? I'm trying to sleep!"
    *Or put a sofa in the lift with a TV, and sit there with your feet up watching it. If someone says anything, say "Shussh!"


    You could also:

    Take a lion in with you and say, "It's ok, he doesn't bite. As long as you don't provoke him."

    Love em!!! Every time I'm in Wal-mart, or the like, and the little announcer comes on the loud speaker saying sales, lost kid, clean up...whatever....I tend to cover my ears and say "I can't take these voices! Stop telling me what to do!!"

    my other favorite joke from school...it was a BAD day for everyone in class....the teacher was even frustrated with us...as we walked out the door, she said "have a nice day" to me...I just looked at her and said "don't tell me what to do!" She almost fell over laughing! =0)
