Serving Other Deck

After we moved to the new office at 8 Shenton Way, whenever I take the lift, the lift will sometimes stop at the level that noone pressed and we'll hear the message "Serving Other Deck"... it was really confusing!

Turned out the lift in the office is double-deck. Never heard of it before? Me neither, but here it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-deck_elevator. Apparently, it's designed for efficiency, so there's upper and lower deck. So if someone in the other deck press another floor, it will stop there even if nobody in your deck is going to the floor above or below it (depending on whether you are on upper or below deck).
