One of the requests of the Medora Foundation is to have its employees work a few hours of overtime at the Musical. The musical begins tonight, June 3rd, and will run until mid September. There are several part-time evening positions ranging from vending, to working concessions, parking vehicles, and escorting those that need assistance in walking, onto a golf cart. However, the job that caught my attention the most was that of escalator attendant. I have seen escalators in airports, shopping malls, PNC Park, at parking garages and a multitude of places. The most evident of these belted stairways is inside a JC Penneys, leading from the ground to the second floor. In my fifty seven years, I have never come across an escalator attendee. So this evening, we received an in-service in attending to people riding an escalator. Apparently, since North Dakota is so flat there aren’t many escalators, especially in the western end of the state. Perhaps there are no multi-level malls to gain practice. After a forty-five minute presentation, I now feel as if I have a master’s degree in the Principles of Escalating. Oh, well. Another culture shock for me. And still lovin’ it.
