Unless I'm traveling with huge bags (where I would pick elevators), I usually use the stairs. I work in an office setting so a little extra walk is welcome. Back in high school/college, I often had to do conditioning drills on the stairs; eventually developed a liking to it.

i remember an incident in China, where the escalator platform swallowed a mother due to poor construction / no safety in place.
not that it should be an issue in countries like England or the US though.

Oh okay. I see what you mean.

Now that I think about it, I do find it a bit dangerous if you don't pay attention when you're near the end about to step off, you might trip and fall over. OH! Or when the escalator is not moving and having to walk down while staring at the grid lines on the steps make me feel dizzy lol. Have you ever felt this way?

Ha, I actually remember when I was around 3 or 4, my Mom couldn't get me to go down. She waited for me at the bottom and tried to cheer me on, but I wouldn't go. The lady that was head of the department I was standing in gave me a piece of candy, then took my hand and held on while we went down together.

See! Haha

I still have those old thoughts in the back of my head when I use the escalators. Hilarious how stuff sticks with you.

Stairs, I don't always trust technology/machines and I don't like the hum of either when they move, plus it always seems to throw my balance off just a tiny bit (I also hate treadmills for the same reasons) XD Oddly enough I DO like amusement park rides, go figure, guess the fun makes up the difference or something.
