Why I Dislike Escalators

Have you ever walked down or up a broken escalator? It can be dizzying. Additionally, I don't feel that escalators are really that convenient or efficient in terms of the amount of energy they waste, as they are constantly running, and they really don't see much human action on a Tuesday afternoon at the mall.

Also, how many calories are not being burned when you take the escalator instead of the stairs?

The late comedian, Mitch Hedberg, summed up escalators the best with this quote:
An escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You would never see an "Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order" sign, just "Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience."
