Subject: RE: Folklore: Is this an urban myth?
Good Heavens leeneia, I though that it was only the Bible that people took literally. I'm sure that Michael isn't implying that the woman is camped out at the bottom of the escalator.

Perhaps the reason why this story is not doing the rounds as an urban legend is that it's all too believable. In fact, I would go as far as to say, commonplace. People walk out on their partners all the time and in circumstances just as quirky as this. What is lacking may be originality rather than believability.
