Puzzling Thing of the Day

There was a guy kneeling at the top of the escalator. It was about 4:30pm. It looked like he was praying. His head was bowed. Why?

He was in a pretty inconvenient and not particularly safe place (ie right where you would usually step when you get off the escalator). I had to squeeze past him. My bag may have hit him.

Do you suppose it is a religious thing, or a practical joke thing, or something else?

Maybe his shoelaces were caight?
oops, typo ..."were caught"
Perhaps he was praying for them to disentangle themselves...

I thought it was strange because even if it was a religious reason I would've thought he would take one more step forward before praying.
Any-one who gets on an escalator may think some-one else is going to take the step for him...

The Led Zep song wasn't "And she's riding the escalator to heaven"

Ooh, it makes me wonder..
...yeah the escalator has done all the work so far.

I must find myself a life escalator. It might make me lazy and complacent, but think how much quicker I'd get where I'm going!

Maybe the trick with escalators is knowing when to get off and start walking....
Yeah, stop reading this blog and go out and have some fun!
