I’ve mentioned before that I work (I work!) on the second floor of a building bereft of elevators. As such, besides the fire-pole, I get to the first floor via the stairs.
That’s not exactly true. I get to the first floor via the stairs’ hand-rail, which I slide down. It’s a multi-part process really:
(1) walk down a couple of initial steps looking for other people
(2) slide down to first landing
(3) repeat step (1)
(4) repeat step (2) to first floor
I really don’t know why I do it. I know why I did it; but the fact that I do so consistently throughout the day is a bit of an oddity to me. But then I’m odd, so there you go.
What I really like more than the actual doing, is the wondering how many other people (if any) do the same thing.
