I'm Kind of a Jerk

I hate sharing elevators.  (Perhaps this is related to my minor fear of being trapped in one?) If possible, I will do everything I can to be the only one on the elevator.  It's awful, I know, and I really should repent. 

Why this makes me kind of a jerk:
  1. I'm ashamed to admit, but if I've stepped into the elevator and I hear you coming, I will probably push the "door close" button and pretend I got a text message and just didn't see you in time to hold the elevator for you.
  2. My worst ploy is when I see you and "rush" to push the door open button but the doors just happen to close before you can get on.  Oops! I must have pushed the wrong button. I'm so sorry.
  3. If you get on the elevator only to get off one floor later, I will probably roll my eyes at you behind your back.
  4. Whatever you do, do not push the wrong floor number causing us to stop needlessly at a floor where no one is waiting to get on.  I may chuckle lightheartedly on the outside, but really I'm glaring at you from within.
You see?!? I really am a jerk.  I'm sorry to have destroyed your image of me.  I do hope to make amends.  Can you ever forgive me?

now what I hate is when you are standing closest to the buttons so now everyone is looking at you saying," um 4 please."
"can you hit 3 for me, thanks."

freaking F you.
