I'm afraid that it's survival of the fittest in this world. Stairs and Escalators are just tests to determine your strength and abilities.

HAPPY HUNGER GAMES MY FRIEND.

May the odds be ever in your favour.

No one's stopping you from using an elevator.

I still remember that video of the Chinese woman falling into one and being crushed to death, scenes. Ever since then I always put both hands on the rubber just incase it collapses below me.

Please don't do that on the tube unless you want angry londoners staring at you.

To clarify I mean both hands on the same side not like a 'T'. Someone would probably walk through my hands.
