The eternal battle of the DuPont Circle Escalator
Tuesday, December 15, 2009
So I always gripe about walking up the DuPont Circle Escalator, which works out to about four floors, even though I always walk up it, because if I didn't I'd feel like I was being lazy. And I'd kick myself if it made me miss the shuttle.
So today the escalator! Was! Broken! I don't know how many fewer steps you have to go when it's moving, but man, my heart rate was spectacularly high by the time I reached the top.
The down escalator was moving, of course. Priorities and all.
And when I got to the top, it turned out that someone's shoe was jammed in the top step. I hope all they lost was the shoe and not some toes.
