Escalator Etiquette

I very much enjoyed sharing my unwritten rules of elevator etiquette so I decided to share more of my unwritten rules with the world. Maybe people will read it and be conscious that they are the douchebag of public interaction.

Today I will talk about rules on the escalator. So, an escalator is a great way to quickly go from one floor to another (especially when you walk up) and unlike the elevator it’s okay for lazy people. That being said, lazy people still need to get themselves together. The rules are as follows:
  1. You shall not block people from walking past you up the escalator. Right side is standing side left side is the fast lane, get with it.
  2. If you know you are not going to walk up the escalator DO NOT rush in front of people that intend to walk up. Let people go past you, they are trying to walk up the escalator they've got places to be!
  3. If the escalator is only one person wide and you are the douche at the front just standing there, EVERYONE HATES YOU, MOVE!
  4. If you have a baby carriage or luggage let people go in front of you, do not rush to get on and then stand there taking up 5 steps.
This is all I can think of for now, I may need to update this rule list later. I promise I’m a nice person, it’s just that living in NY public transportation is a big part of life and you have to deal with these idiots that don’t know the unwritten rules, all time!
