Elevator talk

This happened as I got on the elevator a little while ago. I don’t know why, but elevator talk amuses me, perhaps because it is the USA Today of personal interaction.

Other occupant: Thanks for holding the door.

Me: No problem. How’s it going?

Other occupant: Not too bad, yourself?

Me: Keeping busy.

Other occupant: Do more with less. Then do more.

Me: Okay, well, take it easy.

Doors slides open. Exit stage left.
