How will you start conversation?

Let's admit it, travelling with a stranger in an elevator does make a lot of people uneasy. Some either stare at the floor indicator while others gaze at their own feet. I would rather start a conversation..."hello,.... cell phones dont ring inside the lifts. I like it, what do you think ?"

It's true it can be embarrassing not knowing what to do. But starting a conversation is not easy sometimes, at least for me.

G'day, an easy elevator convo starter i always use is "G'day, i hate the way these elevators make ya gut drop to the floor" and it always gets others in the elevator talking.

Just say hello how are you? It's not that difficult, or give a compliment.

It is embarrassing. I just smile and look at my finger nails most of the time.
