lots of NOs with one YES

I'll see your Emily Post and raise you a Miss Manners*

Ordinarily I'm all in favor of people being considerate and letting other people go first, but elevators are a special case.

Please, if you are the person standing closest to the door, do not try to be polite by urging the person standing behind you to exit the car first. Last in, first out works ever so much better.

This post brought to you by the innate good sense that tells me that growling at a co-worker for trying to be polite would be a bad idea... much better to bring it to my LJ and rant here.


*And yes, spiritualmonkey, I realize that's a string raise. I don't care. :-p
