Oh god this.

Jesus fuck this.

Seeing things like this - while on the face of it is "not a big deal" - it is a big deal in that it perfectly illustrates how much of a fucking asshat Americans are in general to not have the thought-process of "I wonder if I'm impeding anyone's ability to move from taking up space in the center?"

Just shows the selfish nature of our culture, makes me long for the time I was in Japan because it's precisely the opposite.

I am pretty sure this happens everywhere in the world, even in Japan.

It sincerely doesn't.

Throughout my travels to many countries - Brazil, Russia, France, Belgium, UK, Russia etc... they all result in the same thing when you get off public transit.... Everyone BUM-RUSHES the escalator like mad, and everyone congregates in a circle of "Who can get to the front first" with no real sense of who got there first, etc...

Not in Japan (presumably not in other places as well like Korea)

They all get off and calmly walk to the escalator. They get in a single-file line from the very back, they don't get into globs of people at any point. Each person ensures they 100% keep right all times, allowing anyone who is in a rush to walk up the escalator on the left.

Japanese culture is lovely in some ways but keep in mind they too have their issues.

Sure.

There is a certain something against women in the workforce still I'm sure - that's probably the worst I can think of.

But they definitely have plenty of standards that we should adopt - general caring for what others think of us is amazing and should be adopted by anyone.

Another is respect for elders.

I don't know, just because you didn't die young doesn't exactly mean you deserve respect.
