i just read an article about a woman in quebec who was hand-cuffed, taken to the cop shop and fined upwards of $400 for not holding the handrail on the escalator exiting the subway station.
are you kidding me? do the police in montreal really have nothing better to do than patrol the fucking escalators? i would've snapped if i were her. i would have completely lost it. seriously. i tend to have problems with authority as it stands (let alone useless pieces of shit upholding pointless laws) but if an officer asked me to hold onto a germ infested handrail when i am perfectly capable of standing upright on a moving conveyor... i'm sure my fine would've been a lot higher than hers.
