Goodness! Why is it we have to go through this every single day? C’mon people!!! Where is your brain?
This time, I am not just talking about tourists even though I tend to find them annoying for various reasons some of which I mentioned here.
You know it doesn’t even matter if people live here in DC or not they still do some really really stupid things like:
#1 Block the escalators. Dude or Dudette…..stand on the right side of the escalator so that others can walk up or down to get where they are going without you being in the way. I don’t care if you are not from around here. I am pretty sure you have seen steps before!!! Also do not stand at the base of the escalators or steps either to figure out where you are. You should have done that beforehand.
#2. same as number #1 I thought it needed to be repeated again.
#3. Do not smoke! (Although if it was up to me this wouldn’t happen anywhere at all for your and my own good.)
#4. If you have a big bag hold it in front of you and not to the sides
#5. If you are walking down or up the escalators and you are slower than me (which is quite likely) move to the side if at all possible (it usually is) and get out of my way.
