Bule Behavior Defined.

My gym is on the second level of a newly constructed urban jungle called “The Piazza”. To get to that second level, I have two options: the stairs or this hi-tech tunnel with a flashy escalator. I almost always opt for the escalator as it’s closer to the parking area (ok and it’s got the Knight Rider feel).

A couple months ago, the escalator stopped running for no reason. They didn’t attempt to put any kind of “Under Repair” sign in front and I never saw anyone use it again. Oh well, nothing wrong with resigning myself to the stairs. For the past few months I have passed the escalator and continued on to take the stairs. Sometimes things in this country just stop working for no reason right? I’ve gotten used to it.

Last week as I was approaching the escalator area, preparing to walk on by, an attractive Chinese woman in workout gear breezes past me and hops on the escalator. I didn’t have the heart to tell her it was broken, to save her the embarrassment.

You know how this is going to end, don’t you?

As she reaches the first step, the motion detector, sensing her movement, starts the escalator moving.

  • OMGLOL Brandon! šŸ™‚

  • Moral of the story:

    Chat up the *attractive* Chinese woman!!

  • You know, those escalators can be killers for the toes, if you’re not careful. So, in a way, you can say you were just ‘saving’ your toes. šŸ˜‰

    You really make my day…LOL! šŸ™‚

  • Hahaha… Since I live in the neighborhood I knew the end before I finish reading ^^

    They DID put a sign, btw, it is on the right side of the escalator *smile*

    I don’t read any of those signs. šŸ˜‰ C’mon, people don’t even pay attention to stoplights here, much less escalator signs.
