Here are a couple of informational tidbits you might find interesting. If you're in a rush and need to make that elevator an express one that will go straight to your floor, without stopping at any other, do this.

Hold the Close Door button until the doors close. Continue to hold that button. Select the floor and do not release either button until the elevator starts moving. You'll arrive at your floor without any stops. This works on all certified elevators.

If you would like to prevent water from boiling, just place a wooden spoon so it sits across the pot, end to end! No more mess!
