How do you stand on a skirt?

Miniskirt is not the only possible kind of a skirt in the world. Some can actually reach the ground.

No one said that the skirt was being worn at the time of the standing upon it. :-)

...and I wanted to use "upon" instead of "on" but that was not ok :(

How come "Stepped on" is incorrect? I assume that's what they're trying to say that you are standing on/stepping on someone's skirt...
