Truthspew’s Guide to Escalator Etiquette

So as a rail commuter from Providence RI  to Boston to Cambridge MA I’ve seen some assholish behavior when it comes to escalators. For example – if the escalator is wide enough static traffic to the right, dynamic traffic to the left.

But you always get some static dolt who stand there like a dope on the left side.

And let me define – static equals not moving just standing there. Dynamic means walking up the stairs.

And today at Providence station you had a whole knot of dolts standing on the left side. What the ever loving fuck! But one guy I see regularly on the train – he’s a big guy. He just pushed his way through. How I wish I had the height and mass to do that.

So the rule – if you’re not going to climb up the stairway stay to the right! Or halten sie nach rechts if you prefer German. If you’re going to walk keep left. See, it’s simple. It’s just like driving – slower traffic to the right, faster traffic on the left.

But it explains the shitty drivers in RI too. I mean I got my license here too but I don’t do the stupid shit I see people do all the time.
