#$(!&%#@* Metro Escalators
I know we've been warned, but I am an impossible klutz. I was wearing flip-flops (I know, I know) last night when I clipped the edge of a step on the Rosslyn escalator with my big toe. I went home and self-medicated with peroxide and Spaced. My doctor told me today I needed stitches, but it's too late now. I think I can live with the scar. I just hope my toe doesn't fall off.
Is it just me or do Metro escalators have bigger teeth than other city's underground moving staircases? Compare the London Underground's escalators with ours. I have a picture of my toe, but no one wants to see that.
