A man works on the 10th floor and always takes the elevator down to ground level at the end of the day.

Yet every morning, he only takes the elevator to the 7th floor and then walks up the stairs to the 10th floor, even when in a hurry.

But he will go all the way to the 10th floor when others are in the elevator with him or on a rainy day. Why?

A man who lives on the tenth floor takes the elevator down to the first floor every morning and goes to work.

Otherwise, he goes to the seventh floor and walks up three flights of stairs to his apartment.
Can you explain why?
