WRONG!! WRONG!! WRONG!!
That’s what I believed to be true; until this dumb old lady erased said thought.
So I’m at Roosevelt Station (home of plenty craziness) when I stumble upon a massive LOSS. The worlds BIGGEST escalator is out of service! Yarr!
Now I’m forced to mount this motionless metallic mountain VERY early in the A.M. and i truly wasn’t up to the task. In any event, i tough it out as it was the (supposed) fastest route. I then realize that folks (myself included) are taking baby steps going up this thing while the opposite side enjoyed a brisk skip downwards.
Half-way up I come to find out there is an OLD lady, clutching purse and all, taking her sweet friggin’ snailing DOWN the UP side. You don’t go against the grain of a stalled escalator granny! PMO! Now not only am i late, i am the MOST pissed in the world. For the first time i wanted to slap an old lady. Yup, I wanted to take the glove off her hand, get a frim grasp, and then swiftly back-hand her for being a dunce. As i type this i almost regret that i didn’t.
Lesson here folks: don’t walk down the upside. Is that such a difficult concept to grasp? I didn’t think so either, until today.
