The Burlap Zach: LRT Peak Hours

No standing during peak hours.

Seriously, we all know just how busy the LRT stations on campus are during the 10–15 minutes before classes start. Students in a mad rush to avoid the walk of shame associated with entering a class late — and yet, there always seems to be that one person who decides to stand on the escalator while everyone else is purposefully striding up it.

Of course, not everyone is capable of briskly making their way up the moving stairs, but for perfectly able-bodied students, there really should be no excuse. Walking up stairs won’t kill you, and if stairs really send that much of a shiver down your spine, take the elevator. On second thought, don’t do that either, give your head a shake, and learn how to use an escalator to aid your walking, not replace it.
