Standing on the down escalator this morning at Circular Quay the recorded announcement "Please keep a firm hold of children" is heard
Feral mother standing a couple of steps down ( who IS
holding her young child's hand ) says "F**k that ! They gotta learn sometime" and proceeds to quickly drag the child down the moving escalator
Funny from the point of view that Feral Mother seemed quite happy to stand until hearing the recorded announcement ( no recording is going to tell her
what to do ) ..... unfunny as the poor child could easily have tripped
Unintened reverse psychology !
