Logistics

If you want on the elevator, you need to let me off first. If the door opens and instead of stepping aside to let me out, you just stand there blinking at me, none of us will get anywhere.

I realize that because you live in New York and take the subway to work every morning, you’ve probably grown used to the idea that when the door opens you just stand immediately in front of the person trying to exit the subway car, which forces that person to either shove you aside or step on the toes of the rider to his left so he can dodge around you.

But this isn’t the subway, and even though I am now used to the idea of shoving people aside so I can exit the train, I’m still Midwest enough that I don’t want to muscle through a wall of co-workers so I can get off the elevator.
