I suspect that she felt it should be unnecessary to explain to a grown man why you don't start grabbing other people on escalators

Nah, I'm with John - I reckon she didn't have an answer, and didn't want to admit it (possibly not even to herself). This kind of argument pattern is common among the kind of people who like to argue from "common sense". And you know what? I think you're doing the same thing.

As you've noticed, I really can't summon up the energy to argue about this with John — and I know and like him. I can totally empathise with someone who has to deal with this kind of thing all the time not having the energy either.

I'm sorry; I thought I was going to have time to come back to this properly, but I don't think I am, after all. But if you're interested in this sort of stuff (and you haven't already read it) you might enjoy reading Gary Klein's Sources of Power. It's an interesting study of the way people make decisions.
