Personal space - escalator etiquette

I don't know if it is just me but I noticed some people like to stand right behind people on escalators. I like to leave a step in between the person in front of me like any other normal person. Just last week, when I was on the escalators at the train station, I looked to my left and there was a freakken hand right next to me (the place where my left hand would have been if I held the railings)!! The lady behind me was standing really close to me, almost bum rubbing close...annoys me when people invade my personal space. This has happened a few times already...

Source: adultawkwardness - I made a lot of changes to the pics

LOL as you can tell I'm no artist. I tried to find a pic on google to try and describe the situation, probably made it worse lol I didn't tell her to back off, what would you have said?

On a different matter - Either tomorrow or Monday I will be blogging about my evening dress for my wedding!! Going to the dress maker today to get measurements done, will take some pics to show you ladies.


  1. I also prefer my space, please. lol But I think it happens a lot in a country like mine, Brazil.

    I'm so curious to see your dress! Good luck!

    Have a great weekend,
    Manu Luize.

  2. This post just made me LOL...I hate it too when strangers get too close!

  3. The picture about the bum rub made me LOL. Yep, ATM queues is another time where people get inappropriately close. Its like they think the closer they get to you the quicker the whole process will be!

  4. This happened to me twice today and I may have had a rant about it on fb (sorry, friends). DO.NOT.LIKE.IT.


  5. hahahahahah love it! But its true this always happens and its so frustrating, horrible and gross all rolled into one!

  6. Funny post! :D So happens to me all the time and I hate it..I need some personal space. Love your blog. Following you:) if you want check my new blog.

  7. Totally get what you are talking about. I especially hate standing in line and feeling peoples tits on my back, or those people who get excited when they see people eat and put their breath all over your food....ewww.


  8. Bum rub hahaha. I think I would have taken a discrete step up onto the next step :P

  9. Oh, I hate when people invade my personal space's just too awkward. Like Bec, I normally try to take a step forward or back to create a bit more distance, but I do understand it's not always possible. :(

  10. i can totally relate to this :p

  11. I hate when people do that! I usually go up one stair or I go all the way up. Haha

    so exciting you're going to take your wedding pics at Birghton!!!

  12. Omg I HATEEEE this!!!!!!!! I go through this every single morning lol it's horrible.

  13. LOL - and my other pet peeve is people crushing up in the aisle on the bus. Take half a step back! Please!

  14. Are you planning a beach wedding? Then beach wedding favors are the perfect way to say thank you to all your friends and family who help you celebrate your special day. If you would like your wedding favors to be a lasting memory for your guests then you really do need to put some time and effort into finding just the right one.
