Guy 2: Why?
Guy 1: Because escalators are slow and make me fat!
There is a commonly ignored rule of escalator etiquette which states that people are to walk on the left and stand on the right sides of the escalator. Many people ignore this rule and stand on both sides of the escalator resuling in escalator traffic jams. These jams are especially annoying when people are in a rush.
Many people believe escalators are indicatave of the laziness of the human race. Instead or walking up stairs, people insist on being effortlessly floated to the top of their staircase. This is one of the reasons among thousands, that the world is becoming so obese.
Guy 2: Yeah, but I don't want to become fat like you.
Employee: I was late because people on the escalator didn't follow the proper escalator etiquette! There was an escalator jam!
Manager: ...you're fired.
"Damn! What are you going to do?"
"Shit man, I'm giving her the escalator tonight and aborting that fetus"
