My first idea was that he was small or too short to reach the button but he can jump and hit the tenth floor button :)

hes an insane midget who either likes the exercise or isn't smart enough to carry a device to press the higher buttons. My first thought was a secret lover on the 7th floor. and he didn't want to be seen taking the elevator or something.. and if someone else was in the elevator he didn't want to stop at the 7th or w/e.. i dunno this seems a little strange but i kinda like the answer.. it's just not that practical.. I'm gonna have to look up this lateral and canonical stuff..

Dude, he just needs a special dialing wand. He can obtain one by mashing his hand against the keypad on any touch tone phone.

"He can also push them with his umbrella."

Then why can't he go to his floor directly when no one else is in the elevator.

Bit silly having that as part of the answer.

Hmmm! Sounds very difficult. I never knew that elevators are so complicated things to ride. You have to be very careful. It all depends on, the way you are moving - up or down, your height, height of all the other people inside the elevator, the ordering of the allocation of the button numbers, availability of a pencil to any one of the persons inside the elevator (by the way, for some reason I am having this uncanny feeling that 'availability of a pen' can also influence the situation), the length of that pencil, the weather condition, whether you use an umbrella or a raincoat, your expectation about the weather of the day, etc. etc. etc....all these collectively determine the displacement of the elevator...and all these years I was thinking human beings are intelligent.
