The Burning Question*: Do you press the button to close the doors on a lift?

Let us distract you from the serious news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: There are two types of people in the world. Those who press the button to close the doors a bit faster when they’re in a lift, and those who don’t.

Hell, there are some in that second group who even – whisper it – question whether that button actually does anything, or whether it’s put there simply to make people think that the doors are closing faster than they are.

Where do you stand ?

Poll Results:

I ALWAYS press the button to close the doors. (6975)
I never press that button (2167)
I like answering poll questions (1351)
Wait, there's a button that can do that? (318)
I press all the buttons cos I want to watch the world burn (246)
