fengi: (GRRR!)
I'm sure everyone reading this is understands escalators. I am regularly vexed by people (not children or the disabled) who don't.

-Two person wide escalators: single file, stand on the right, walk on the left. Being asked to step right is not an affront and one shouldn't have to be asked at rush hour when hundreds of people are behind.

-One person wide escalators: standing is fine, respect the person in front of you. In a narrow space, the least mobile set the pace - accept it.

In general, bad commuters are mostly jerks about the first and not the second. I think it's because it's easier to be polite when there are no options. The moment there's enough space for choice, a good many decide "fuck everyone else".
