When you ride on an escalator, remember in the United States, to step to the right side. Invariably there is going to be someone that is in a rush who needs to get by.
Standing beside another person on an escalator or otherwise blocking the pathway so that others in more of a rush than you cannot get by is rude. Therefore, the next time you are on an escalator, put your luggage, other bags in front of you, have your family, and friends stand in front or behind you. Simply do not block the pathway so that others in more of a rush then you cannot get by.
Thank you for remembering these tips the next time you are on an escalator.
