One coworker called out to me as my fall started. I felt that all eyes were on me as I bumped into the handrail. Yes, I’d been holding on.
Yes, I may have “played” that up a little, but there’s one fact I can’t ignore. By holding onto the handrail, it saved me some embarrassment and some pain, but mostly it did its job to help me…
