Escalating Joy

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 5:39 pm


There’s this outdoor escalator near my office.

Something about being able to smoke while riding an escalator really makes me happy. Sometimes it’s the high point of my day. Which isn’t to say that some of my days are really fucking boring or sad, it’s just an expression of how much it pumps me up.

Disproportionate joy definitely makes my world go round.

Now if only I could find a movie theater where I could smoke, I’d be set. I bet they’d even have escalators in there too.



  1. Hey Dave – I’m right there with you on the small pleasures being the highlight of the day.

    But really, have you ever been behind the person smoking on the escalator while the smoke comes billowing back in your face? DC has open air escaltors at the subway stations (it seems that you would be in heaven) and all that billowing smoke is not the pleasure you’ve been dreaming about.

    Yep – the smoke in the face on the escalator is a missed bit of etiquite – sorry dude, just gotta call you out on that one.

  2. Wowzer, you’re absolutely right. I definitely try to be as courteous with my smoking as possible. Something that’s become increasingly harder as the years go by and our numbers dwindle.
