Rat's Presence Causes Havoc on Escalator

If you asked most people, they'd probably say they hate rats, and the very sight of them is startling. I am one of those weird people that aren't afraid of rats or mice. Before moving to Charlotte I even lived and worked in New York City. The rats that roam the streets on garbage day and hang out in the NYC subway are pretty sizeable.

Although you may never want to run into a rat, I think we can all agree that there are some places that would be far worse to find a rat than others. Seeing a rat down the block isn't a real big deal or threat to most people. But encountering one while riding a moving escalator, that's a whole different story.

This rat run-in happened in the Philippines at a mall. 

I would much rather have multiple rats in a small room with me than cockroaches or any type of spider with the exception of a Daddy Long-legger. They aren't threating at all. 

What's the thing that just scares the holy hell out of you?
