Dear Blog Readers,
I would like to take a minute to rack your brains and appeal to your logical side. Just exactly what defines acceptable escalator space? You know that space I'm talking about- the number of steps between you and your fellow escalator-riding neighbor?
Personally? Two is alright, but I prefer three. It's just a nice bit of space between you and the rider in front of you. Nobody wants to be all up in your hoo-ha when riding up a flight or two of stairs, so in my book, three escalator steps, it is (especially if you're at the airport and luggage is involved!).
Now, riddle me this: Why in heaven's name would one particular escalator-rider step onto the escalator and choose to stand on the step directly behind ME, their fellow escalator-riding, business-minding neighbor? I don't want you all up in my hoo-ha while riding up two flights of stairs. Yes, I showered this morning. Yes, my scrubs are clean and smell faintly of Gain's Lavender Fresh scent dryer sheets. But, have you ever heard of something called personal space?
Maybe my fellow escalator rider missed that particular memo, "How to Ride the Escalator and Not Be All Up In Your Neighbor's Hoo-Ha." In any case, I'd like to thank them for giving me a major case of the willies at approximately 7:30 this morning. And for giving me a reason to write a blog post in which I was able to use the word "hoo-ha" multiple times.
