Farty smelling Canberra Centre escalators

By MWF 18 February 2011 24

When I go to the Canberra Centre, I park underground. There are usually more parking spaces available underground, which is nice.

What is not nice, is the awful farty smell on the escalators from the underground carpark to the ground floor.

What is this farty smell?

What’s Your opinion?

oh, i think i have an answer for this. The rubbish docks for Superbarn (and probably a lot of the other stores) are located off Petrie Street. You’ll probably find the bad smell is blown through the loading dock (like a wind-tunnel) and finds its way in the escalator service areas.

Considering this thread was started during summer, it probably has something to do with the heat. As for recent complaints, all you need is the wind to blow the wrong direction, and/or the rubbish not collected for a few extra days to have this effect.

A very old man breaking a hip falling down an escalator amuses you? A bad fall will land an octogenarian in hospital, and the death rate is very high from late-in-life falls. Bad call, posting this as a funny.

I remember the fist time an old lady told me she and her husband were Octogenarians – I initially thought of some secretive religious cult (and wondred why she was telling me this) before the penny dropped later in the conversation……..

They still smell farty.

The other week I was using the Farty Smelling Canberra Centre Escalators, from the basement carpark, as usual.

The male of the young couple ahead of me took the time to lift their toddler child and take a great whiff of her nappy contents. I overheard the female say “It’s the escalators, they always smell like this.”

If you’re amused by footage of an old man getting hurt, try Rwanda 1994, Guatemala 1989, Cambodia 1971, Iraq 2004 … lots more, even better fun around for you!

Cheers, excellent news! Can you point me at the Gifs? I normally get mine from “thechive”, but haven’t seen any of the ones you mention.
