That's better than 19th floor coming one before 2nd floor.

And it gives midgets a fair chance of getting to the 19th floor.

Not in a very large building where you have the one hundredth floor, one hundred and first, one hundred and second, one hundred and third, etc.

Not in that building. Anyway why would you need a button for the Ground Floor? You're already there.

It's not an elevator?

I worked in a building where it was like B2, B1, G, 1, Mezzanine, 2, 3, …

And that was in Florida, where if you excavate, you meet Aquaman.

Not if you aren't there, you aren't.

In some countries there are no Ground floors, i.e. in Lithuania.

Once you step into the block, you are on the Floor 1. No one is using arrays there.

Ground Floor and First Floor are usually interchangeable terms in the USA, with some exceptions, such as the building I mentioned. Where there is a separate G and 1, often that means that there are entrances at more than one level.

Not in Western Europe they ain't.
