Are you stuck onto the escalator so that when it gets to the top you can't get off and get sucked under and round again?

hhhmmmmm..... Schmierdienst!

that sounds like a german short story they made me read in the high school.
can't recall the author, maybe Böll or som minor postwar writer...
it wasn't that tragic (or comic), as it wasn't actually an escalator, but a paternoster elevator....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paternoster

the main charachter took a daily trip over the top, as a sobering routine to remind himself of the oily and dirty mechanisms liying behind the smooth surface of everyday chores and relationships, and help them to keep running... the "schmierdienst" ("greasing" i.e. bribe)

I realise that's not all that funny...
but Paternoster is also a good beer, at least :beer:

Yeah, we had a paternoster in the office in Paulsenhaus until we moved to the new building in 1996. It's still there

http://www.paulsenhaus.de/foyer_01.html

One day an obviusly tired construction worker tried to use it ... carrying a big ladder. There was an explosion like sound and the whole machinery stopped with a moan.

Anyway, the cabins are not turned upside down when going around so no need to do a handstand. I often missed the last floor while reading some most interesting computer listing and it's very embarrasing when people see you coming down from "the roof" ...

:lol:

that made ME laugh!

"I come down from above to help you mortals..."

Since there is no lighting in that paternoster it's a little bit scary the first time you travel around.
