A tip from Uncle Wirecutter























I tried it out today at the hospital and yes, it works. Matter of fact, I tried it out several times just to piss people off. I spent more time on the elevator than I did visiting Bud.
You're welcome.

As an elevator mechanic for 25 years, I can tell you that if this actually works for you, it is a coincidence that no one pushed a hall button while you were riding. This is describing a function called "Fireman's Service" or "Phase II Fire Service" and requires a special key to activate.
Believe me, if this was actually happening, someone in the building would call the repair service (me) and complain that the elevator keeps passing them and it would get fixed. After all, don't you think the building occupants would know about this malfunction before someone off the street?
