O_o My dad even told me a story about a kid who got trapped inside the escalator forever. You see, the ones at the mall made knocking noises sometimes, and when we asked why it did, that's when my dad told me and my brothers all about the child who got sucked under at the top of the escalator and was now trapped inside. The knocking sounds were him trying to escape.

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.

My brother, when he was younger (5-7ish?), would absolutely NOT use escalators. We were in a two-floor department store once and he went up the escalator, but threw a fit when he had to go down and cried. An employee had to come over and stop the escalator so that he could walk down. LOL

I got over the fear when I was older, cuz by then I'd watched "Gladiators" and wanted to copy everything on there, like the Travalator. The nearest thing to the Travalator is running up an escalator going down. XD Once, I and a couple of friends did that and got yelled at by a security guard.
