  1. My ex-wife because I am afraid that I would kill her and then end up in jail. And I don’t want to go to jail. I am too old for that shit.

  2. Charlie Sheen because he’d think we were winning and wouldn’t want to get help. I kid. The alternative is just as bad. I’ve been stuck in a single-person sized elevator.

  3. Well, there is no actual person that I can name . But, I would not like to be stuck in the lift with someone who smelt of nicotine, stank of beer, had sweaty under arms and body odour and had bad breathe.

  4. Probably someone who was dangerously insane, a fanatic or otherwise unpleasant personality. I guess someone with lax personal habits (e.g body odour) wouldn’t be very pleasant either.

  5. probably someone with offensive b.o….i’m not talking someone who’s all natural…but like…really…really offensive…or even someone who’s *chosen* to wear an entire bottle of perfume/cologne…you know the type of person…the kind that walks by and you shut your mouth to keep the smell out – then gag as they pass…*ugh* *yuck*

  6. ugh, Bush W. or Cheney! I wouldn’t be able to hold my tongue about what scum they are – and that would probably put me on an FBI watch list.

  7. Someone who get’s claustrophobic – because nothing’s going to make a bad situation feel worse and make time go slower, than the person standing next to you in the confined space, ab-so-lutely freaking out! And I can’t keep someone deep-breathing and thinking of green fields and daisies for 30mins or more!

  8. Eu tenho verdadeiro pavor de ficar presa em elevador.
    Nem só e muito menos com qualquer pessoa!
    Detalhe já fiquei presa sim, não é nada agradável!!
    Abraços a todos!
    Mina!

  9. Clarification needed: “last person” as opposed to the ‘first’ person? or “OMG! you are the last person I’d want to be stuck in an elevator with”?

    In reference to the former:
    I’d like Denzel Washington to be the last person stuck in an elevator with me. The “last” person because then no explanation would be necessary when the doors opened – or not.

    reference the latter:
    A priest – because it would be hard to discern who needs to confess more 😦

  10. I wouldn’t want to be stuck in the elevator with two people. First I wouldn’t want to be stuck in the elevator with our President. I haven’t liked him since he started running for President and he is even worse today. I also wouldn’t want to be stuck in an elevator with a gay person who would try to hit on me. I do have gay friends so I am not afraid of them but if they ever tried to cross the line that would be the end of our friendship.

  11. Maybe the man my Irish street poet hero Pat Ingoldsby writes about in a poem about the awkward silence in elevators:

    The lift was full of people and no one knew what to say to break the silence. Then one man “spoke with great sincerity” and told the others that his doctor had assured him that as long as he took his medicine at the appointed times, he wouldn’t feel the urge to whip out his butcher’s knife in crowded lifts and wave it around his head. “Isn’t that great?” he asked. Then he looked at his watch: “Oh shit,” he said.
