Escalator Morons

I got to hit the emergency stop on an escalator today.

A party of Chinese school kids was being herded by their teachers
and they all thought it would be a good idea to just mill around at the bottom
of the escalator as people piled into them.

I shouted at the tail-end-charlie teacher as we were heading towards
the melee but she didn't have a clue.

So I hit the panic button.

Some people just shouldn't be allowed out in public, let alone be
put in charge of children.
(Although to be fair the kids must have been thick as pig **** too.)

Let's Off Road!

I actually remember this from the 1970s - my youngest was born in 1973 and I was paranoid for a while when taking her on escalators after seeing this!

Yes, Woolworths' escalators were demonic after seeing that ad.

After seeing a FaceTube clip of a crush of schoolkids in China this does seem to be a
real problem.


Never hesitate to hit that button !
