That some idiot won’t try to ban it?
“We need to look at why doorknobs are not suitable for disabled people,” Alan Norton, chief executive of Assist UK, an organisation that provides products and equipment to people with disablities, told The Independent.
“When you look at people with arthritis or those who have little movement of their hands, a lever is easier as you push down on it. However, automatic doors would be the better solution. I agree that we should ban doorknobs in the UK.”
Ban doorknobs? As opposed to, I dunno, setting up an organisation to aid those with arthritis or little movement of their hands to retrofit their homes. We could call it, say, Assist UK and appoint someone called Alan Norton to run it. I’m sure, in this infinite universe of universes, that there’s one where that does happen.
As I’m sure that there’s this one, where a certain Alan Norton obviously isn’t getting laid enough. Such pent up sexual frustration is the only explanation I can think of to explain the idea of banning sodding doorknobs. What next? Banning doorbells because they’re no use to the deaf?
