I might be completely in the right, but I don’t think that I am completely in the wrong.
Escalators: The unwritten rule, stand on the right, walk on the left.
Recently I have been a little more impatient with those not following this. Now I don’t yell, scream, swear or the like, however I have started saying to the person standing (unless both lanes of traffic are standing room only) Excuse me, are you walking up? Usually I just get a surprised look then the person will either walk up or move to the right.
This morning a woman planted herself on the left. Since I couldn’t walk around, which I will do if the coast is clear vs. smack everyone that I need to pass, I did go. “Excuse me, are you walking up?” She said no. Then I asked could she move to the right as that step was empty. She response was to not yell, but say in a loud nasty voice, “Why do I have to move, why can’t you just walk around?” All this as she is running up the rest of the way.
So instead of stepping to the right, she yells. Personally I don’t think that I was in the wrong. Ehellions? An over reaction on her part. 1222-16
