NATIONAL TALK IN AN ELEVATOR DAY
On the last Friday in July, National Talk In An Elevator Day encourages us to strike up a conversation with someone in an elevator.
While most of us use this time to check our smart devices, this day points us in another direction. Whether we ride with a stranger or someone familiar to us, start a discussion. You might meet someone new. If you’re riding with someone you know, try to learn something new about them.
Riding in an elevator can be a short, mundane experience inside a box. From another perspective, the short vertical trip could be a laughter break. Try out your stand-up comedy. Share your udderly moo-tivational cow puns you’ve been saving up.
If comedy isn’t your style, break the silence with a miniature spelling bee. For example, see if you can get a consensus on how to spell consensus. Does everyone spell it with the correct number of Ss?
However, the best way to strike up a conversation in an elevator is to mention the national day. While you’re discussing that, you can add all the other great ways to Celebrate Every Day®, too!
HOW TO OBSERVE
Introduce yourself and share a conversation with fellow elevator passengers. Post your experience on social media using #TalkInAnElevatorDay and encourage others to join in.
