Here? It's the worst of both worlds. There's complete anonymity. Completely asinine comments remain in stasis, exactly as they are, for all to see.

Hmm, interesting observation! But then how do you resolve the apparent paradox where the only poster on Waygook who regularly goes by their real name also posts the most asinine comments?

That garlic bread flavored chocolate was nasty! I tried the tiniest piece, I had to spit it out, almost vomited, and was still feeling sick 2 hours after. D:
Silver lining, I've found a new gag gift. :D

Why do we need each elevator to have their own button? I don't know what anyone else on any other floor is doing, so lots of people just hit all three. They take the first one that comes and then the other two come and there's no one there to come on.

Just have one button and send THE NEXT ONE AVAILABLE to my floor. Do they think I give a shit which elevator I go in? Just send the NEXT ONE.

It's absurd.

Such technology exists, but cheap building owners see it as a $2000 option and choose not to implement it.

I have seen some situations where there is an assessable elevator (low buttons).

The building where I go for PCR tests (in Cairo) has what I assume is an “executive” lift next to the common ones. It has wood trim and a small screen that plays Kpop.

I can't recall seeing a bank of elevators that all had independent push buttons until I came here.  I get elevators that serve different floors, obviously, but most of them here are an absolute waste of time and power.  Almost no one seems to guess which one will come soonest and just pushes one button.  They hit them all. My GF's 13 floor office building recently installed the one button for all elevators feature and it's like having to relearn how to do it.  I've become so used to the stand back and watch them all method.  However, I also don't recall being able to cancel a floor on an elevator by hitting the button again as you can here.  I like that feature.

I could merge the 4 topics into one and then merge the names together into something like "Is this fake Rittenhouse driving SUVs through Russia?"

If it wasn't for the amazing and informative thread about protocols for travelling internationally (hats off to whoever started that gem) I think I'd follow a couple of other users and bug out of here.  It's gotten to be like Amazon Prime.  I kept going back in the hopes there'd be something I'd want to watch but eventually I just cancelled it.  Although, checking it after I'd already cancelled it I saw the entire Kid in the Hall was on it, so I'll hold out for a bit longer.  Or at least until I get my reentry permit and a plane ticket.  Then I'll move on to that other site and watch the conversation ticker where no matter what someone says, no one craps on them.  I want to be that person that craps on the person who thinks bringing up what they thought of that day's lunch was worth typing about.
