Eaton Bannisters

A comment I made on FB that seems worthy of being elevated to a post on my personal blog.

My brother, a dignified school teacher who never went out in public without jacket and tie, regularly slid down the bannisters in Eatons, back in the day when there were still Eatons stores. On the one occasion I witnessed his being approached by a manager who demanded to know what he thought he was doing, my brother calmly explained he was hurting no one, it wasn't illegal, and if they wanted people not to do it, they should post a sign.

When I went back a couple of weeks later, there was a sign.
