token girl: like a girl, but better

ever wondered what happens when...

something gets caught in an escalator?

i got my wheely trolley trapped in the down escalator heading towards the charing x branch of the northern line this morning at euston. part of the metal frame got trapped between steps as the stairs slid into the floor and i panicked. luckily some trusty american tourists came to the rescue and kicked le trolley out of the way, by which time i'd mananged to infuriate streams of commuters on their descent into the underground ('getouttatheway!!' etc). i very graciously thanked the tourists for their help ('you're welcome ma'am' ma'am!!!) and cursed everyone else. bad, but slapstick start to the week.
