how about just be happy we live in a world that has moving stairs to carry your lazy ass up there!
Anyone saying that it’s rude/bothers them to have to, God help them, move one WHOLE step over to let walking people pass them have never been in a busy, multi-story building where it takes 10 minutes or longer to wait for the elevator. Agreed with RyzzleyBear-It’s not a ride, it’s there to get you to your destination faster!
The stair alternatives to my building’s escalators (I take 3 each way) are on the opposite side of our complex. One involves exiting outside, walking an extra half block and crossing in traffic instead of taking a tunnel that goes straight through. What is so difficult about yielding to people who want to pass? Are you afraid you might burn a calorie executing this gesture?
People really don’t understand escalators. They also don’t understand they can be dangerous. Will never forget my time in retail when a woman pretty much got the bottom half of her big toe ripped off by doing something iffy with flip flops on while getting on the escalator…. Seriously, scared the lord out of me and all the other shoppers nearby.
