Poll: Do you talk to strangers in lifts?
Give it to us straight. Be honest.

MAKING SMALL TALK in a confined space with strangers can be a bit of a social etiquette minefield.

Do you start a conversation in the few brief seconds you have? Stare at your phone, even though your reception is probably gone? And where are you even supposed to look?

So over to you – do you talk to strangers in lifts?

Poll Results:

Just something short like 'hi' or 'bye' (4846)
No way (2805)
Yes, I'll chat away (2317)
