    Default Elevator Awkwardness

    When you get on the elevator, and things are quiet, everyone's looking either down or up. I usually do something with my cell phone during this time.

    Doesn't bother me too much. What's the worst that could happen? They say "hello" or something.

    The worst? Maybe they'll pull out a knife and stab people. Happens in many movies.

    It doesn't bother me, I'm usually listening to my Ipod or with a friend, plus I'm totally absorbed in my own head.

    Sometimes I may notice, for like a split second that there are people around me, but I quickly phase back out.

    Yeah, then I feel like I need to get the hell outta there.. but I can't because I'm locked in a box with them people.. I hate the awkward glances and the close personal space.. I start to wonder who I would eat first if we got stuck

    Haha. I stare at a wall or a corner or something like that. Or actually play mindgames and stare people in the eye to see what happens. Usually they turn away and it's chuckleworthy for me

    I seriously dislike the elevators with mirrors in them, though.

    You can avoid the awkwardness but being the person causing it. Just keep staring into their eyes.

    Me too, now that I dislike, the temptation to stare at myself appears so vain, but it's more like morbid curiousity, like "if I stare hard enough, will I really see the evil in me" (moroccan old wives tale).
