OK folks, basic manners

when you're going up or down stairs in a Skytrain station! And yes naysayers, the escalator is broken, If you are standing two or even three abreast there are those that are behind you that are: - late for an important doctor's appointment - trying to get work on time - trying to get home to pay the babysitter Move the FUCK over and do not be selfishly holding us all back! It's called "manners".

The one that kills me the most is the dumb motherfucker who just can't wait to check his messages on his phone after getting off the skytrain and walking down the stairs. He moves at a snails pace while scrolling through his texts or whatever, while I'm trying to hurry up and catch my bus!! I'm gonna punch one of these assholes in the back of the head someday :{

Holy fuck, yes! I've missed buses too many times because of this. And when I ask to get through, I get a confused or snotty look. Some people just need a gravity assist

It's called common sense.

The whole world has a fast lane and a slow lane. Right is for standing left is for passing. If you try this standing around looking cool and self absorbed crap in paris old women will shove you out of the way and curse you.

In BC it's idiot hour every day because there is a severe drought of common sense here.

Settle down

As one of those people who is always in a rush and who hates to have to wait on an escalator, behind slow walkers, behind slow cyclists, or behind slow drivers, I get your frustration. However, life has also taught me that sometimes we need to settle the f*** down and relax. A couple of minutes here or there is rarely going to make that much difference, and it might actually teach us a little about the value of patience. Try it.

I remember in the 90s when they had those stickers on the escalators that said "Stand Right, Walk Left" Where did those go?

Look again, they are all over. Even on the ceilings.

Common sense is not the name of a flower that blooms in your garden. Some people are just incredibly stupid.

Is 30 seconds to a minute of inconvenience really worth this kind of ire? Kinda seems like you could be held a little at fault for not leaving a 30 second to one minute buffer to be on time for any of those Very Important Things :)

You're totally missing the point.
You're obviously not a transit user because yes, 30 seconds to a minute can mean the difference between getting to work on time or waiting 15 minutes for the next bus.
And this is being caused by rude, ignorant selfish, pedestrians with their heads WAY UP their own ass.
