Childhood fears returning

When I was a kid, this public safety information film scared me so much that I avoided escalators as much as possible until I was in my late teens, and only in my 20s did I develop the knack of stepping onto one without pausing.
Yesterday I was behind a mother and her young son on the escalators at Waterloo. She was saying "tomorrow, when you go to school, you talk to Lara and ask her what it was like getting her skirt caught in the steps and all ripped up".
