Pet Please #85: Moving Walkways at Airports

5-moving-concourseMore specifically: Walking on moving walkways at airports. Standing on them is okay. Walking on them, though, is exhilarating.

Even more specifically: Walking on moving walkways at airports while other people are walking by on solid ground. Look at how fast you’re walking compared to the fools who didn’t get on the moving walkway! The time they’re wasting putting one foot in front of the other on stationary ground…it’s a disgrace.

That’s just about when you stumble off the end of the walkway. But still. It was awesome while it lasted.

When I’m waiting for a flight, I often go out of my way to walk back and forth on moving walkways. I love the sensation that much. I don’t want to look like a crazy person, so usually I’ll walk one way, then the other, and then I’ll pause to inspect something really interesting at a nearby storefront before getting back on the walkway.

I wish all sidewalks were moving walkways. Football fields should have a moving walkway strip down the middle of the field for enhanced plays. The possibilities are endless! (I could only think of two, but I’m sure there are more.)

Do you share my love of moving walkways? Where else would you put them outside of airports?
