        • Especially if, like me, you live in DC and take the Metro, and in the last few days have seen:

          *kid (pre-teen) run down an up escalator.
          *numerous people holding open, occupied strollers on escalators.
          *man use wheelchair on escalator (I see him almost every day, he arrives to work at the same stop as me at the same time…yes, it’s a feat of dexterity, but I alway wait until he gets to the top before getting on the escalator lest he lose his grip).
          *several teens riding the handrail up the escalator.
          *numerous people disembark the escalator and then stop, oblivious to the fact that there are dozens of people behind them ON A MOVING ESCALATOR (bonus points for having a suitcase/rolling briefcase/rolling backpack with them to more effectively block the whole escalator).
          *one person hop over the side of the escalator, about 3 steps from the bottom, to catch a train.

          And, the biggest offense:

          *people standing on the left side of the escalator.

          Sometimes I swear the working escalators are more of a pain than the numerous broken ones.
