Is this sort of common?
but as you're a girl "Awww hun I hope you're ok *hugs*"
Makes it look like good fun.
Always wanted to see that.
get it caught go tumbling down the stairs and took the whole escalator down with her. Was mildly upsetting actually
I always picture myself falling down them. Now it's almost a reality.
My suitcase fell backwards and I sort of went with it and because the escalator was going up I just tumbled but didn'tgo anywhere. I'm ok, just a bit cut and bruised and SO increased :(
She broke both her legs, but was able to stand up unaided about a week later. So you'll probably be alright.
Hope you haven't done any serious damage.
Some of those massive, steep escalators freak me out when you're at the top looking down.
it completely wigs people out. People who would be bounding down normal stairs were shuffling down the escalators with huge looks of concentration on their faces. Makes me feel like I have slinkys for legs.
of an out-of-order escalator, assuming im descending and then looking up startled that I'm just stood completely stock still, for no reason, while people walk past me laughing
he tripped and caught his knee on the edge of the step bit, cut it right down to the knee cap/bone.
He deserved it for running up the wrong way though
I really hate escalators :(
She's refused to use one since, which makes trips to London somewhat tiresome.
Hope you're ok.
my mate fell down the second highest / longest escalator on the whole of the underground. TOP TO BOTTOM.
Didn't break anything as he was so pissed he was probably all wobbly. Completely screwed himself though. Still had to go to hospital.
but I've never witnessed it. I live in fear of it happening to me and grip manically at the handrail when I'm scooting up and down the fast lane.
are you too fat to fit in the gap?
I feel bad now :(
And he doesn't ever deserve apologies. He's never apologised to anyone for being a massive cunt.
gives me more time to get to the office, sit at my desk and post pithy replies on the DiS social board.
if there's a way to get through it quicker, i'll do it
Telling it how it is.
and I don't like being downwind of the arse-smells of strangers, thanks.
If you fell and started rolling down an UP escalator, would you essentially be in a state of perpetual motion?
if you keep going forever

Must be some tribal collective memory thing. But it's useful, cos it means there's always plenty of space if you stand on the left.
You are pure evil
Apparently one person died on the escalators last year. Probably better for them to be out of the gene pool in truth.
