I'm just curious: How do men figure out who exits the elevator before the other(s)?
It's rare that there are 2 women exiting at the same floor in my building, so I just take the prerogative and go first, no matter that "ladies first" doesn't have much practice in San Francisco business life anymore. But I often leave behind 2 or more men to...duke it out?
My husband, who hasn't worked in a building with elevators for years, didn't have a full answer.
Mind you back in college when you could be on the elevator in residence with five to ten guys, if one of them farts all bets are off and its every man for himself :)
The Alpha goes first.
Rank. Lowest exits last, assuming it's not packed then it is simply last on first off.
