    We needed that trick in that Leeds hotel we stayed in last. Stop at every other floor? Yes please, just what we want after a 5 min wait for the thing in the first place!

    I have to say this though. This is selfish behaviour by doing this you just make other people wait longer. Personally I would not do this.

    Think it depends. Sometimes if lifts full in carparks etc, you don't want to stop every stop just for people to go "oh full" and wait :P If it's empty, thats another story

    By Multi-Floor lifts I was meaning more than just up 1 level and down one level as that tool is rather useless on a G/1 lift really as it either goes up and down

    “Modern elevators are strange and complex entities. The ancient electric winch and “maximum-capacity-eight-persons” jobs bear as much relation to a Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Happy Vertical People Transporter as a packet of mixed nuts does to the entire west wing of the Sirian State Mental Hospital.

    This is because they operate on the curios principle of “defocused temporal perception”. In other words they have the capacity to see dimly into the immediate future, which enables the elevator to be on the right floor to pick you up even before you knew you wanted it, thus eliminating all the tedious chatting, relaxing, and making friends that people were previously forced to do whist waiting for elevators.

    Not unnaturally, many elevators imbued with intelligence and precognition became terribly frustrated with the mindless business of going up and down, up and down, experimented briefly with the notion of going sideways, as a sort of existential protest, demanded participation in the decision-making process and finally took to squatting in basements sulking.

    An impoverished hitch-hiker visiting any planets in the Sirius star system these days can pick up easy money working as a counsellor for neurotic elevators.”
