"An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You should never see an Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience" Mitch Hedberg
@Cunt of Monte Cristo, warning sad story ahead: actually once an escalator broke while a mother and her child just reached the top, something collapsed and the mother pushed her kid away but she fell and was killed inside it. My memory is fuzzy on this one but i don't beleive it happened in the US. I think the fall killed her but i could be wrong
@Cunt of Monte Cristo, there are rollers underneath the stairs that break and anyone can fall through and get hurt
@Dephenistrator, ummm downer much? I mean that's sad but it could have just not been said either
@Cwfeldmann, they did say sad story. Didn't need to read it
@Dephenistrator, this happened in China at a mall in July 2015. She was killed, but did lift her child to safety before falling into shaft
@abecedarian, i thought it was in asia. Sorry for tge sad story but i did warn people before hand
@Cunt of Monte Cristo, RIP Mitch :(
I did this when in a Sears once when I was like 7 and there were people cheering me on and they applauded when I made it.
@NoReason757, I did this in Dillard's and got kicked out.
@NoReason757, I did this when I was little from a bet. Escalator was not moving though...tripped and hit my knee on the end of one of the steps and started bleeding a bit... My dad laughed...never gave me those $5
I was hoping for a domino effect. Aggressively disappointed.

@Dragondoot, I guess reverse gifs are starting to get annoying?
All I'm saying is, I think it would be amusing seeing two elderly people walking backwards on down and escalator
I love how her first reaction is to go to her phone like hold on let me tweet about this.
