Default Taking an elevator up one flight of stairs

I'll qualify this before I rant: This only applies to situations where the elevator and stairs are right next to each other. Anyway, this just bothers me. It's a waste of resources to take an elevator up only one flight of stairs. People that do this might as well get a shirt made that says "I'm lazy" in huge letters.

Just my opinion...

OMFG this is so frustrating! And one time I even saw a young guy which picked the elevator just for the first floor! I could understand if it was an elder person, but a young guy...NO.

I'm fully sympathetic to the old, injured, or those encumbered with baggage, suitcases, etc... But beyond that it's just excuses.

I have a somewhat fear of lifts due to my experience of being stuck in one many years ago, so when there's stairs I will opt for them, even if it's going 10 or so floors up.

Edit: Maybe there should be a restriction for people that are lazy to use them for only 1 or 2 floors up >_<

I do agree, tbh. Even if I wasn't claustrophobic I'd still appreciate and take the opportunity for a bit of exercise.

Yes, I always prefer to take the stairs if I'm heading to the 2nd or 3rd floor of a building. Unfortunately, I work on the 2nd floor of an office building and the staircase is always locked from the first floor. So the only way to make it to the upper floors is to take the elevator. I feel like people are judging me when I use the elevator for the second floor.

Some young ppl have health issues.


Though, i usually like to use the stairs tbh!! I once got stuck in an elevator for an hour by myself at a museum. So i told myself never again!

I like to call or send the elevator to another floor and then not even use it
