I was lectured by a young girl for standing too close to the lift door once (turns out I wasn’t), after she gave another lady a lecture about pressing the “down” button (guess what? there’s not such thing in a lift) in the most condescending manner. All while she chatted away with a young man with a trolley who stood 1/3 of the way in the lift without considering others trying to get in with prams. I couldn’t help saying to her “people actually know how to operate the lift without you having to teach them, so just keep your comments to yourself” She was a little taken aback and mumbled something which I didn’t catch as I walked out the lift. Not sure if it’s a lack of courtesy in this case, or just lack of patience and intelligence. Maybe a bit of everything.
