National Talk In An Elevator Day is celebrated on the last Friday of every July. This year it falls on July 28. The day encourages people to make conversation with others while traveling in an elevator. Many of us spend those time checking our messages, emails, notification and while some stay silent looking straight and thinking of others things. So this motivates people to look around to start up a conversation with others in the elevator. It is important because it needs the courage to speak and break the uncomfortable silence. So be bold to start up a conversation with fellow riders of the lift. You can use National Talk In An Elevator Day as an excuse to kick off a friendly conversation with the strangers in the lift.
“Life is like an elevator. Up and down, just make sure you get off on the right floor.” – Keith Douglas
