How to Spot an Escalator Virgin

by Chikashi

They have not grasped the fact that an escalator keeps moving at least as long as people are on them, that it does not stop moving people forward unless it breaks down or the emergency stop button is pressed.

They do not keep walking or step to the side when they get off an escalator. They look like they just entered a twilight zone as they got off the escalator, perhaps wondering about which way to go, now that they actually need to propel themselves, or they are just in awe that something just carried them forward, upward or downward.

I am in awe that there seems to be so many of these virgins out and about unsupervised. Please, someone put a collar and fixed length lead on each of them.

Glass half full…
