Yes I did actually do this, but no I wasn’t thwarted and got to take the elevator by myself. The thing is that I know my neighbor’s name and he knows my name so there’s a small amount of familiarity. Beyond that we don’t really talk, so when I’m in the elevator with him it feels really awkward. So I’ve actually done this more than once before. Last night it just took an exceptionally long time because the dog kept on stopping.
