On my way out of my apartment block this evening, the lift stopped on the floor below me where there was another resident waiting.
My girlfriend and I asked this person if they would be okay to wait for us to send the lift back up (5 floors, probably 40 seconds wait in total).
The person tried to barge into the lift saying "for god's sake are you serious?" before changing their mind, telling us to "B*****r off" and then they took the stairs.
Is this a reasonable request on my part? Would you do the same in this situation? I'm not a hypochondriac but I have been pretty careful in keeping my distance and reducing the risk. It'd be daft to then enter a confined space with someone.
Context - lift is approx 1.5m x 1.5m, space enough for about 4 people pre social distancing.
