Featured in February – 2022 – “Bad Idea”

In the WST (What Sandra Thinks) challenge today we have “Bad Idea.” Of course I can think of a few bad ideas I’ve had over the course of the 67 years I’ve been around.

Let’s just say it was a bad idea to wear a long dress when going down an escalator in the middle of the mall and not holding it up so it wouldn’t get caught, which it did, shutting down the escalator and leaving me stuck there until someone called for security.

It was quite embarrassing to say the least. I mean, I literally was stuck. And it was a dress, which means I had just my underwear on underneath so if I had to take off the dress…Fortunately there was a nice person who went and got security to come and set me free. The elevator’s mechanism would not allow it to go forward or backwards so we had to rip my dress to release me to make sure I didn’t get pulled down. Good thing it wasn’t my favorite dress and good thing it just ripped the bottom but you can bet I went straight home after that! I could just imagine people looking at me saying, “There goes the woman who broke the escalator!”

So, what was your bad idea?

    Was the dress really a bad idea, or was it the greedy escalator trying to eat the dress that was the bad idea? Had there been steps there, none of this would have happened. Just saying…

    Not a bad idea…just an unfortunate circumstance

    From a guy’s perspective, I’d say yes that’s awful! Yet, that’s life throwing another curveball at ya. Escalators and elevators are dangerous devices! Be well. 🍻
