Stand on the right and other unclear directions

As I navigate the airports today interacting with the public at large I am reminded how infrequently people think of anyone but themelves. People get on the esculator or moving walkways and just camp out. Sometimes they stand next to people, other times they stand on the left for no apparent reason.

Similarly when geting ready to deplane the aircraft it is not unusual to have someone sitting behind you rush forward and not wait for their turn.

Can we all just look out for someone else a little more often? I understand you have to take care of yourself, that is great but there ought to be at least a few minutes of your day to make sure your actions are not the cause of anger, grief or inconvenience for the rest of us.

I would like to shoot these people…… Really!

Just tonight while flying through ATL I was trying to walk down the esculator on the left and four people were standing on the left or directly in the middle. I made my way most of the way down then politely said “Excuse me” twice. As the man moved aside he said loudly and snidely “Make room for the executive.” Like I was looking for validation from a redneck!
