    The left side of escalators are for walking, the right side for standing. Recognize!

    the first time i was in NYC, i was on an escalator, and people were running up the shit... i'm from north carolina and we don't get down (or up) like that at all... i didn't realize what was going on until people started yelling at me... the dude behind me got all up on me, and yelled "go"... i told him "if they wanted you to walk up, they would have just made it stairs"... then him and his people called me a hick or something, but i just stood there all the way to the top, watching them turn red, and laughing on the inside... the difference in walking or running up and riding up would have probably been about 10 - 15 seconds at the most

    Then don't stand in the very middle of the escalator with both your hands on the railing.

    Have you ever had to go to the bathroom really really bad, or been late for work?

    Get real guy.

    TRUTH. as well as my biggest pet peave. some days I walk, and when I do, I go to the left. And days when I stand, I stay to the right. It is not that difficult.

    Nah, the worst is people who stand still on the people movers in airports. The sole purpose of those things is to help you walk faster, not so that you can stand there and look around.

    HaHaHa...NO SHIT! Why don't you just sit down and crack a bag of Doritos while your at it. I'd love nothing better then to pile-driver these people through a glass coffee table.

    But what if I really, really want to soak in all the atmopshere and ambience of a fucking airport hallway?

    I do not believe that the sole purpose of of moving sidewalks is to help people walk faster. I'd much sooner consider it an aid for those who have trouble walking long distances than to ramp up the ability of those fully capable of walking.

    "the great thing about escalators is that they are never broken, they just turn into stairs...they should put a sign out when they stop working "sorry for the convienence"

    Northeast cities are all about running up and down escalators. In Boston and NYC, people will flip their shit if you're in the way. I never noticed it being from the northeast, but all my friends from anywhere else were blown away by it. Kinda funny how people in Northeast cities are always in a rush, have more anger issues and are more likely to punch you if you bump into them.

    I think also to make it easier for the elderly and for people with luggage.

    The worst thing about broken escalators is you have to make baby steps up those initial steps that haven't fully extended yet. It always throws me off.

    I think it's ridiculously hilarious that people get mad at folks who stand on moving sidewalks if there is a walkway next to it. Go dumb.

    No Sir, you are doing something wrong and I won't help you to do it. You are not supposed to walk on an escalator. You put yourself and others in danger by doing so.

    Supermarket classic right there. I always feel like throwing tuna cans at them and then run.
