Heading home today I got to the station and saw a huge mass of people standing around just inside the gates. "Awww crap," I thought to myself. "The train line is delayed, I'm going to take for ever to get home!" I groaned and steeled myself for my 40 minute commute to take three times longer as I waited for a train...
But I was in luck.
The trains were not delayed. I trotted up the flight of stairs and a minute or two later a train pulled up.
The huge mass of people? Were a line... for the escalator. Yup. The escalator. They were all lining up very calmly to stand on only the left side of the escalator as it went up a short flight of stairs.
Did I mention I took the stairs? (after having to push my way through the line that was snaking its way in front of the gates)
