Using an escalator may be simple for you, but, as we all know, technology can be overwhelming for the senior citizen set.

Take this poor woman. She is trying her darnedest to climb up an escalator going down in what appears to be a mall. Making matters worse is the fact she's making her grandson go with her.

As you'd expect, she's not making much of a dent in her journey. We're not sure how long it too her to realize her error, but we hope she made it up to the boy by riding to the bottom and treating him to an Orange Julius. The kid's earned it.

And we sincerely hope someone had a camera rolling when she went to find her car. We have a hunch that would be internet gold.
