Ask the Mountie

Why do people stop at the top of the stirs and block the way for all others?

Dear mountie, Why is it that when some people when going up the stairs of a, lets say subway terminal, they stop at the top and block the way for all others?

This question is beyond any doubt the hardest one the Mountie ever had to answer.

If you had the answer to this you'd understand the nature of mankind and probably find a solution to all the terrible troubles of the world.

My only advice is: Carry a sharp stick, and if you ever feel like pausing for breath on the top of the long flight of stairs, remember the old adage:

When you reach the top you just have to keep going.

Yours Truly
