We usually decide to take the elevator when we are in a hurry, so when we get stuck waiting for an elevator it feels like an eternity or even longer. You push the elevator buttons several times, but it does not seem to make the elevator any faster. You start having thoughts like, "Why is the elevator up on the fifth floor and not here?”
Much of the time we spend waiting for commercial elevators tends to feel a lot longer than it realy is. What's up with that?
