Stand right. Walk left. [Insert third sentence here].

Grand Central escalators

Let’s cut down the commuter rage on escalators. If you are going to stand, then move over to the right and stand. Kindly allow those who wish to walk up the escalators to have the space on the left side.

Everyone should know the common phrase, “Stand right. Walk left.” If people don’t know this phrase, or maybe they temporarily got escalator dumbness, I’d like to kindly remind them. Usually I just plow them over and say OUTTA MY WAY. But now I’m thinking of going the public art route–an awareness campaign.

Let’s take that phrase and make little static cling stickers to place on escalators to remind people to follow this behavior. To throw in an extra fun mix, I would like to throw in a third sentence. Something like:

  • Stand right. Walk left. Enjoy life.
  • Stand right. Walk left. Outta my way!
  • Stand right. Walk left. Be kind.
  • Stand right. Walk left. Clap your hands. [from Sparxmind on Twitter]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Or fly like Superman. [from Erik Maldre on this blog post]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Don’t you know the process? There’s a process here. All these people know the process. Why don’t you know the process? [from Marco Buscaglia on Facebook]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Don’t block the middle with your heft. [from Jen Evans on Quora]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Excuse me. [from Garrick Saito on Quora]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Sit center. [from Eliana Briones on Facebook]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Fly above. [from Rachezee on Twitter]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Shimmy Shimmy Ya. [from TheeErin on Twitter]
  • Stand right. Walk left. The penalty is death if you don’t. [from Cyndi Perlman Fink on Quora]
  • Stand right. Walk left. Watch your step when you get off. [from Joan Hoffman on Quorra]
  • Stand right. Walk left. No flip flops! [from Designslinger on Google Plus]
  • Stand right. Walk left. ___________
  • Stand right. Walk left. ___________
  • Stand right. Walk left. ___________
  • Stand right. Walk left. ___________
  • Stand right. Walk left. ___________

 

Let’s fill in the blanks and come up with some ideas for the third sentence. Please reply to the tweet, blog post, Quora, Google Plus, or Facebook. (I will paste all responses into the blanks on this post)
