The lift in my office building is superfast . The doors close in a matter of seconds . There is no sensor that keeps the doors open if a person is in between the doors or very near it.

It's fascinating to see the impatience of folks using the lift . When someone gets off at a floor a lot of the folks would press the close button and make impatient sounds in the 2 seconds it takes for the doors to close .

A symptom of the modern day society - where everything must happen immediately , gratification needed this very instant , one is always in a rush to get to someplace . The present is a means to an end to the future . Even if that future is the next instant and headed nowhere .

Beautifully written. Your small incident summarizes the rat race we all live in.
