One from my g/f, as related to her by a colleague:

Have you ever been alone in an elevator with a stranger who starts chatting with — or hitting on — you? I can relate to it, having been hit on by men and women in elevator situations.

So, here’s something that might dissuade unwanted elevator suitors, or at least convince them that you are not all there, so to speak:

At first, ignore the elevator stranger who tries to strike up an unwanted conversation. If he or she persists, slowly turn, look him or her in the eyes and, in an other-worldly voice, ask in an X-Files manner:

“You can see me . . .?”
