Escalator Stairs

One of my favorite Mitch Hedberg quotes is, "an escalator can never break. It can only become stairs."

The escalator I use everyday downtown has been stairs now for the last few days, but why is it that walking up or down a stationary escalator is really difficult? My balance is all funny when I walk it.

"You'll never see an 'Escalator Temporarily Out of Order' sign....just 'Escalator Temporarily Stairs.' Sorry for the convenience."

"I don't own a cell phone, so I just hang out with all of my friends all of the time. If someone needs to get ahold of me, they just have to say, 'Mitch,' and I will turn my head slightly."

they are not designed like normal stairs - the steps are too "long" and also too "high" for comfortable walking.
