    Just when you thought you had seen it all...

    Yesterday I watched a man take a person in a wheelchair down the escalator. Today it was three strollers with kids in each.

    Do people not understand that an escaltor can stop in the spur of a moment or kids and move around making someone lose their grip.

    Guess what happens? You have a lot of hurt people.

    Disney really need to put in another set or two of evelators as this is the decade of strollers and wheelchairs.

    I think this is one of those natural selection things. Anybody dumb enough to try this, especially given the number of signs, kind of deserves whatever befalls them.

    What befalls them are the people in front of them. I try and not get on the escalator if I see strollers behind me.

    I just really loudly point out the signs.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite lines in the movie Mallrats. A kid is sitting on the escalator and Brodie sees it and says outloud so the parent can hear ...

    Brodie: Listen, not a year goes by, not a year, that I don't hear about some escalator accident involving some ******* kid which could have easily been avoided had some parent--I don't care which one--but some parent conditioned him to fear and respect that escalator!

    I used to live by a 2 story target. In between the up and down escalator they had an escalator for your shopping carts. They had so many large signs advising that you take your kids out of the shopping carts before using the cart escalator.
    The large signs always made me laugh but where obviously there for a reason.

    Re: Just when you thought you had seen it all...

    I remember one time I was at South Coast Plaza and this lady with one of those fancy expensive strollers got on the escalator. It was the day after Thanksgiving so it is a really busy day. She gets to the bottom and the wheel of the stroller got stuck and wouldn't come loose which caused an avalanche of people behind her. After she frees herself she has the nerve to yell at everyone for potentially ruining her brand new stroller. I wanted to backhand her across the head.

    You took the words right out of my mouth!
    I couldn't believe it when they built this thing and they only had the one set of elevators! It doesn't make sense.

    Re: Just when you thought you had seen it all...

    I'm going to have to chime in here, I see nothing wrong with taking my kid up/down the escalator in a stroller, #1 they are strapped in #2 I'm 5'11 210lbs, I'm not going to lose my grip on my precious cargo. #3 the escalator is moving slow, I could see if it was going fast or had ninjas trying to pull you off. Plus I feel safer knowing I'm holding her and shes not going to get a shoelace stuck at the bottom.
