Brodie (from Mallrats) was right!

From the Kevin Smith movie Mallrats:

Brodie: Listen, not a year goes by, not a year, that I don’t hear about some escalator accident involving some bastard kid which could have easily been avoided had some parent – I don’t care which one – but some parent conditioned him to fear and respect that escalator.

The guy who died at miller park after falling off the escalator was a man, not a child. However, Brodie’s advice still stands. This man did not fear and respect the escalator.

When my daughter is the correct age, she will be taught to fear and respect the escalator.
