After Public Outcry, Council Reverses Ban On Elderly Crossing Guard Giving Kids High-Fives

After Public Outcry, Council Reverses Ban On Elderly Crossing Guard Giving Kids High-Fives
Updated 3 months ago

An 83-year-old crossing guard in Stockport, England, by the name of Colin Spencer — or the Lollipop Man — was banned from giving young people high-fives. The local council deemed it unsafe and demanded he focus on the job at hand and put safety first.

Although the ruling has some credibility, parents and pupils were angry and called it "ridiculous."

After a rather large uproar, the council lifted ban. Rainbows, happiness, and high fives returned to the land of  Stockport. 

The council must have realized they had bigger issues to deal with than a high-fiving crossing guard.

The people asked the council to apologize — and they did! How civilized.

Keep giving those high fives, Lollipop Man!
