I had an escalator break down once while I was on it. We were stuck for 45 minutes until the firemen rescued us.

"It was like it just burned through his soul," Storey said.

Aaaaand I instantly stopped caring about what, to that point, seemed to be your perfectly legitimate complaint and instead started to intensely hate you on an unreasonably personal level. Now I take a deeply disturbing pleasure in imagining you being eaten by an escalator a la one of those awful Final Destination movies.

"Burned through his soul"...

Really?  Is that really what happened?  Does everyone just mindlessly spout hyperbole now?

My parents had a jewellery store in a large mall when I was a kid and once I saw a boy go down the escalator sitting down. The 'teeth' at the bottom grabbed his pants and sucked them in. Luckily an older lady hit the stop button quickly but he was stuck and bleeding from somewhere. They had to tear the bottom of the machine out to free him while he screamed and cried. It gave me a lifelong dislike of escalators and they still make me nervous.
