I still hate escalators, but not because I'm afraid I'll get stuck: I'm afraid I'll step onto it on the crack between steps and physics will cause me to go flying. For you see, whenI was four years old, that exact thing happened. I was flung backwards and nearly cracked open my skull...luckily, I had my mom and her friend there to catch me. But I've detested the things ever since, and will always take the stairs if they are available as an alternative.
