Some people are scared of spiders or confined spaces or commitment.
I'm terrified of being on a non-moving escalator and have it suddenly start or vice versa. And today, that happened.
And I didn't die. (or dislocate a knee)
I was running down the escalator at a metro stop and out of nowhere, it just stopped. I screamed and kept going and as I squeezed between the doors of the metro my friend said, "See, you're OK. It wasn't as bad as you imagined."
And he was right (grrrr), I was OK.
