His eventual parting words very loudly to his 'colleague' were that he would be back 'in a few seconds' after collecting whatever from his room on the 18th floor 'as the taxi was outside waiting'.

As this DYKWIA has delayed not only me, but the other two people in the elevator (who I knew), cue me to then press all the buttons in the lift so it would stop at every floor on the way up.Every time the elevator stopped he tutted loudly and I could tell he was getting more irate. He then ranted at me 'Did you have to do that?', to which I just smiled at him.

When I exited the lift on the 4th floor, I smiled again at him. After the lift departed I pressed all the elevator call buttons on my floor to make they stopped there on the way down as well.

Childish? - maybe. Did it make me feel better? - definitely.

Excellent stuff. A much warranted textbook response to a classic DYKWIA.
