OK – I’ve got to say something. Floor Numbering (in elevators) in general (not just the USA drives me nuts). For example, in Australia we usually have G for ground, then 1 to whatever, but even in Australia there is inconsistency because we can often get just numbers.
Anyway – I jumped into the elevator in my hotel this evening and pressed G (thinking I would be going to ground). Of course – I ended up in the garage then had to go back up to L (for Lobby). This has gotten me before.
Wouldn’t it be nice to live in the world where we just used simple numbers and then put a label next to the number?
