Getting caught taking the elevator on shabbos

Most of the folks I grew up with or knew on the upper west side took the elevator. My friends were of the “oops” variety, they would sneeze or nudge the button with their shoulder. Some people were of the “excuse me could you hit” types who would wait until someone showed up to take the elevator, hop in and ask them to hit their floor. My family was the doorman type, the doorman knew that when we walked in on shabbos he would press the button for us and walk away without us saying anything.
