Waiting in the Elevator can be tedious, especially if you have to go all the way up. While others may choose to watch the other individuals in the Elevator or tapping into the repetitive elevator music, others may not be so modest, especially if they think they are not being watched.

The following are descriptions of the images of different categories of individuals from the footage of a particular elevator.

1. Weird helper

Elevators are of different makes, the common ones and the more luxurious kind. The Fancier kind might be tricky especially navigating the floor buttons.

Courteous people help the clueless, but this one (weird helper) will not. They seem to find it amusing seeing you struggle with the buttons of the Elevator.

2. Proclamation of love

These type of elevator passengers are primarily couples. On most occasions, it is usually a young couple, and more often than not, they are drunk.

They use any marker, from lipstick to marker pens and spray paint, for the extremists and use them to draw an image depicting their understanding of the love that they share.

3. Get your groove on

Sometimes exciting news could send you in a minute or two frenzy. Many people get to dance or burst their craziest moves that reflect their current mood in this state.

Believe it or not, the elevator camera gets to record many of these reactions. The thought of alone revealing the wild side of people’s dance skills.

4. Missing Pieces

When being inducted as a delivery guy, the freshness and wholeness of the product are usually vital to a good delivery.

This particular person was seen opening a box of pizza and swallowed a whole piece or two. Perhaps the lad was just hungry and could not resist eating it anymore.

That “Friday Feeling” kicks in hard as soon as you step out of the office. The first place after you get off work is the office elevator.

A group of policemen was recorded dancing while headed to their local bar after a long week. Even officers of the law are allowed to let off some steam.

6. Keep it PG13, please

Image: articlestone.com

Elevator cameras recorded a young couple to be having a lovely time in each other’s company. Their closeness resembled that of a couple that has missed each other a lot or just from a tough fight. Whatever the reason was, getting a room was the best move they could have made.

7. Mysterious message

The couple must have noticed that they were on camera and decided to tone down their emotions. The young lady slipped a note to the man, and from the look on his face, this was not going to end here.

This young lady seems to know what exactly makes her man tick.

8. Close call

In the current job environment, some employers allow their employees to bring in their pets to work. This particular pet owner would not be too psyched to bring her puppy back to work as it got its leash stuck on the elevator door.

The scene could have been gruesome were it not for a third party to the rescue.

9. Perfect prank

Panic usually sets in when power is out. The Elevator automatically stops or continues to move even after hitting the stop button. The complete darkness that follows will most definitely send chills down your spine.

Everything becomes immediately better when you realize it is a prank. After an ordeal like this, I would advise a change of friends.

10. The dig out

Getting stuck in an elevator is not a light matter. The fear of never being rescued is crippling. Claustrophobic people have a hard time even getting in elevators.

Elevator pranks never seem to get old. Imagine this, punching the elevator button to get you to some top floor; then the floor opens up. I would scream my lungs out.

A Japanese media company set up this prank where the individual gets covered in slime once down the hole and can slide down to a safe landing.

12. Stalker?

Have you ever felt like somebody is following you or is just paying too much attention to what you are doing? It is common to have such a feeling while in the Elevator due to the proximity you have to each other.

A lady followed a certain Elevator man, and a few seconds later, she came back and continued her journey up.

13. Breakdown

Elevator cameras record at least one emotional breakdown per day. There is some embarrassment in breaking down in front of people, so many prefer it in the Elevator without any judgement.

A woman was caught on camera crying uncontrollably as soon as she stepped into the Elevator. We wish someone was there to help her.

14. Caged in

One of the first elevator rules is to carry your phone. A man had his weekend ruined after he stepped out of the office and got into an elevator.
The Elevator got stuck, and he had left his phone in the office. He had no one to call and was trapped in for a week.

15. Loud Chewer

Loud chewing might as well be one of the most annoying traits anyone could have. Bubblegum chewing tends to be annoying when someone does it loudly, just a few meters from you.

Elevator cameras caught a man chewing and blowing bubblegum from the top floor to the bottom. At least he didn’t disturb anyone, being the only person.

16. Karate woman

On most occasions, everyone in the Elevator tries to avoid eye contact or any form of exchange, verbal or otherwise.

This particular woman was in an elevator with a childish man who kept pushing all the buttons in the Elevator. She could not take it anymore and went all “Jackie Chan’ on him.

17. Be careful with whom you prank

Image: articlestone.com

Elevators are motion sensors that imply that any object on the elevators’ door’s way will immediately stop its closure from allowing the thing to get in or out.

The man decided to play this prank on another woman who kept observing him for a while. After several successful stops, the woman pushed him off the Elevator and closed the door.

18. Yoga in the Elevator

Image: articlestone.com

I always find it curious why all flexible people would find any excuse to show off their flexibility.

This lady felt the need to stretch and could not just wait to get home. She began her routine and made people in the Elevator slightly uncomfortable. At least the other woman in the elevator remained patient.

19. Moonwalker

Another individual started dancing in the Elevator displaying some severe Michael Jackson moves. It would seem that the music in the Elevator has a specific effect on people.

The only lucky bit was that he was alone in the Elevator, and upon exiting, he signed it off with the classic moonwalk, and it was beautiful.

20. Hunger pangs

Image: top5.com

Food delivery is a very tiring job. Getting to move around with food all day delivering to hungry customers.

At some point, the delivery guy gets hungry, and what better place to steal a bite or two than in the privacy of an elevator. My concern is for the customer, is he going to get his order delivered?

21. Not Umbrella Sensitive

A little boy was waiting for his father on the Elevator, and so he decided to keep triggering the motion sensor in the door to prevent it from closing.
He eventually got tired and decided to use the handle on his umbrella, which was not adequate, and he ended up getting stuck in the Elevator.

22. Poor boy

The stuck boy was eventually saved from the Elevator and handed to his father. It must have been quite an ordeal for the small kid. I hope that experience did not ruin elevators for him.

Such an ordeal can be very traumatizing and even worse for small kids who have nothing but the best intentions.

23. Star Wars ambush

A group of men dressed as Star Wars Stormtroopers and Darth Vader entered an elevator, making a man who was in with them a little scared.

24. Lust at first sight

Image: travelontv.com

A man and a woman entered an elevator, and after few seconds, they began stealing glances at each other.

It would be a regular elevator awkward silence until they kissed each other as the Elevator began opening. Could it be love at first sight? Well I think not. But who knows…

I don’t know how she did it, but she managed to contain herself from screaming in joy; perhaps she felt she was being watched. Whatever it was that made her happy must have been enormous.

26. The Elevator Subzero

A man dressed as Sub Zero from Mortal Kombat entered an elevator and waited as a woman entered.

He tried to mimic Sub zero’s hand movement. It was a desperate attempt to get her attention or some move to break the ice. Apparently it did not work at all. The woman did not even glance at him.

27. Hold on to your horses

Pranksters’ favorite spot might be in the Elevator. This group of pranksters set the Elevator to engage in free fall for four floors and then gradually slowing down to a halt.
