There is just one button at the elevator.
As soon as I press the button it lights up.
Going up or down is not even an option, simple enough.
The elevator arrives. The light goes off. The door opens. "Is this elevator going down?" The present passenger nods affirmatively. "If somebody is inside, it'll always go down, as it doesn't stop on it's way up with passengers." he elaborates. It takes some time to absorb this message.
Good for me that I'm descending, but what if I wanted go up? I would have joined the ride down for a detour first or wait for an empty elevator. What a hypothetical drivel this is, I never used the elevator to go further up. So, the elevator designer did think about it thoroughly.
"Possible" and "probable" are two different things. Yes, it is possible that I wanted to go up, yet it is not probable. The elevator designer has rightly prioritised "probable" above "possible" and with good results too.
