Elevator etiquette

I've noticed lately that people crowd the entrance of the elevator instead of making room for the people already in the elevator to get off. It's also mostly adults Ive seen do that, not kids.

Isn't that common sense first of all but just being polite as well?

I always teach my children to step back and allow peole to get off. And when getting off, I get off and cause peopleto back up - BC it is the proper order in which to do things.

I agree!!! They can't get on until people get off. I've said that out loud to folks that are crowding the doors too.

Pretty stupid that people are so anxious to be the first to get in the elevator anyway. Last on = first off!! :-)

Unfortunately, simple good manners are becomming obsolete.

And that's what I'm teaching mine. Back up and move to the side so who ever is on has room to get off.

I've made comments too. I just don't get the mentality, one lady earlier today actually glared at me because I didn't let her get on while I was trying to get off.

People act like manners are optional now.  it's really quite sad that parents aren't teaching their children common (uncommon?) courtesy.
