Going up? Please don't pull somebody's pants down.

A recent CareerBuilder survey of more than 3,800 workers names weird things that happen inside office elevators: fist fights, dancing, diaper changes, flossing, the removal of pants, and “a woman with her arms full of papers using her head to keep the doors from closing on her.”

And, of course, there are more annoying (and frequent) occurrences in elevators. The top annoying elevator behaviors, according to respondents…

  • Talking on a cell phone – 35 percent
  • Not holding the door open when others are running to get on – 33 percent.
    (Incidentally, 16 percent of workers admitted to purposely closing the elevator door when they saw someone approaching.)
  • Standing too close when there is plenty of room in the elevator – 32 percent
  • Squeezing into an already crowded elevator – 32 percent
  • Not stepping off the elevator to let other people out – 27 percent
  • Holding the elevator doors open for an extended period of time while waiting for someone else to get on – 26 percent
  • Cutting in line to get on the elevator when other people have been waiting longer – 23 percent
  • Taking the elevator to go up one or two floors instead of using the stairs – 20 percent
  • Pushing the wrong button, so the elevator stops at more floors – 17 percent
  • Facing away from the elevator door, instead of toward the door like everyone else – 7 percent
