First in a Series of Unfortunate, Overheard Conversations

Setting: crowded Port Authority, NYC, bus platform

20-something man at the edge of crowded platform and escalator sees 2 women walking up moving escalator; rather than move the crowd forward and make space on the platform, he hits the emergency button to turn off the escalator. Women stumble and fall forward.

Woman: "It would have been helpful if you had told us you were going to shut off the escalator."

Man: "It would be nice if you thanked me for shutting off the escalator!"
