Yesterday we wrote about the fact that about half of young adults say they pretend to do stuff on their smart phones in elevators to avoid making eye-contact with other people. Now that this is news, here’s 3 more discrete places to stare:
1. If the elevator has mirrors, at yourself. How do you look, today? Vain? That’s still probably better than rudely pretending you’re checking out the pre-installed “Stocks” app when an 18-year old dressed in the latest from American Apparel clearly does not own stock.
2. At the ceiling. What’s up there? Maybe the other passenger will look to see what’s up there, too. At least now everybody’s having fun!
3. At the “door close” button. It’s always important to keep an eye on that one before new people you will never see again in your life board the elevator and you have to avoid eye contact with them.
