    Link: N.J. Escalator Thought Today Was Backwards Day - As if it isn`t bad enough in New Jersey, these people had to deal with morning rush hour with a broken escalator.

    The number of people who cannot figure out how to properly orient their phone when they`re using it to shoot video is absolutely appalling.

    We`re doomed as a species.

    Well, they were all a little over dramatic about the situation, weren`t they? By the way people reacted to it you`d have thought something far worse had happened.

    "Something terrible happened to me today! Oh my God, it almost killed me!"

    "What was it!?"

    "The escalator was going backwards! Honest, I thought I was going to die!"

    @osirisascend - Agreed, drives me f*cking crazy when I see these dumb people recording videos with their smart phones. How hard is it to rotate the phone so you`re holding it in a landscape orientation to take video?

    It`s like people have forgotten how to use stairs.. If you`re suddenly going backwards.. Walk upwards briskly to avoid congestion. :P

    find, then press the emergency stop button ( I 100% guarantee/bet my life there is one quite visible near the stairs, top AND bottom ) Then proceed to walk up the stairs. then, get on with life.

    "Oh my God! I`ve never been on an escalator that goes DOWN! What will we do?"

    "Oh, I don`t know...maybe we could turn around, ride it down, and step off when we get to the bottom."

    I would hate to be the last person on that thing when it decided to lunge backwards. It`s all fun and games, until an escalator starts dumping bodies on you.

    I read the title as MC Escher thought today was backwards day. I`m so sad now after watching the video. Escalators have a stop button on both ends, you can see it at :53 seconds. Fail.
