One of life's little dilemmas. Do you know if he was going more floors from the main floor than you? I.e if you were going down 1, was he going up 2+? If so then it may of gone down to be more efficient, even though it was told to go up first.

I've never seen an elevator that reverses direction, except on it's main floor (usually the first).

standard service 15% or a bit more since I tend to round up before I calculate the tip. good to excellend service, or a large group is always 20+% crap service 5 to 10%, depending on how crappy. really crap service, less than 5%. outrageously bad service, $0 to $1 (this has only happened a handful of time). I tip delivered food based on how quickly it arrives (if it arrives in under the quoted time the tip goes up), and I always tip take-out at least 5% if it's not a...
