A netizen shared his opinion on how Filipinos should give courtesy to others when riding an escalator. They should know which part are for those in a hurry and which part are for people who just want to stand and wait until they reach the end.
It seems that most Filipinos do not know this simple etiquette. Should you get mad at them for being on the wrong side, they'll simply scold at you and say "eh, di lumipad ka!"
If you've been to other countries, this simple rule is followed by everyone.
Some Filipinos MUST be educated on this etiquette matter.
When going up or down the escalator, the right is always for those who are lazy not in a hurry and just want to stand.
And the left is for the ones who are in a rush. In short, it's the fast lane. Hindi yung 2 lanes are occupied with your fat asses. It irks me off when the left lane is impassable especially when I'm in a hurry. Try to do it in U.S., HK or Taipei, you'll be admonished so badly.
Please share so we Filipinos could grow some manners IN OUR OWN COUNTRY. Hindi yung sumusunod lang sa rules when we are OUT of our the country.
Not being disrespectful. Just my years of experience in Metro Manila and hopeless observation of our day to day deeds. Voila!
