BYO grapple hooks.

Get the fuck off my escalator! I've got to get to Hot Topic before they sell out of vampire sparkles, black lipstick, and razor blades!

I've never understood why some people are always in a hurry when they're not really in a hurry.

Some people constantly need petty bullshit to rage over.

Don't escalators exist so we don't have to walk up stairs?

Now those imbeciles standing on the airport motorized walkways...

If you want slower-moving people to keep right on escalators and sidewalks, you need to move to New York.

The problem is, then you're living in New York.

You may have a wild rabbit up your ass but the rest of us want to take a moment.

Did you have explosive diarrhea? Was your baby sheltered in a burning building? Or do you just like to pretend that you're the hero in an action movie starring You and Bruce Willis vs. An Ebola Ridden Terrorist Meteorite? Don't those jerks on the escalator know?! YOU have important shit to do! Oh, the humanity.

Real cities (not just New York - anywhere where there are enough people for basic traffic flow guidelines to be common knowledge) pretty much all follow the rule of "stand on the right, walk on the left". People in real cities also know about walking on the right side on the sidewalk so that people going the other way can pass, or not walking 3 abreast when someone is coming in the other direction who will have to step into the street as you all refuse to break rank.

In real cities, people not abiding by these rules are scorned for being tourists, which they inevitably are.

What's actually hazardous is when some senile little old lady steps off of the escalator and stands motionless at the exit as the conveyor is delivering more passengers to the end.

This behavior is a typical example of the rampant sloth that we face in our nation. The whole point to having an escalator is to make the ascent and descent more efficient, not easier. Just fucking walk, fat-ass!!!

If you want to walk, take the stairs.

I agree 100% with this. They're fast moving stairs, not a carnival ride. Move to the right or walk up them.

Saying "excuse me" usually works for me.

I walk the wrong way down the escalator against traffic, staring everyone I pass directly in eye while distractedly opening and closing a utility knife in my right hand.

I think the movement must scare them from walking.
