What Goes Down... Solution

The classic answer is that the man is too short to reach the twenty-second button in the lift but, as he can reach the twentieth, he takes the lift as far as he can and then walks the rest of the way.

Of course, this is not the only explanation: the twenty-first and twenty-second buttons might not be working; he may be walking to get some exercise; he may not want the other people in the lift to know where he lives etc, etc.
