You mean the mall, etc. right? Please tell me you do.
I guess I`m only the one that thinks there is no rule. I meant the subway, the mall, anywhere.
I don`t ride the subway much, but the other day I noticed a long traffic jam in front of the escalator. Everyone was trying to line up to one side, making the line just to get on the escalator rather long. I don`t see why everyone has to line up to one side, just so a few people can have the right of way on the other free side.
The escalator is a ride for people who don`t want to walk up the stairs, not a ride made for people who want to walk up the stairs faster.
