Two sides, people

For better or for worse I work in a mall. Not just any mall, a huge behemoth downtown. Being centrally located we get a lot of tourists through here. Which is why I’m so surprised (and still annoyed) at the escalator problem. Everywhere else in the world I’ve been it’s customary to stand on one side of the escalator and allow people to walk up the other. Not so here. People just hog the whole thing for themselves and I’m forced to repeat, as politely as I can muster when faced with crowds, “excuse me” a million times before reaching my store on the second floor. It’s just frustrating that people thinks it’s any different here than back home, where they’re from.
