She is a dwarf and can't reach 45th floor button. Hence uses stairs in the morning. At night she can reach ground floor button and use the elevator.

She is a construction worker / electrician and has just finished installing the elevator that day.
Or, she is just too short to reach the 45 button.

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?
