A Norwegian Elevator

Norwegians do not start conversations in an elevator unless they
are going to the same place as their fellow passengers who they will
need to talk to later anyway

Norwegians need an opportunity to escape when communicating with others
Elevators are the worst
Stay silent and look straight in front of you
Go to the mountains if you want to make small talk
