Good on YOU, Mr. Train Driver man!

Sitting on a train that had come to a stop just outside of Greensborough station.

After a few minutes an announcement is heard.  “Sorry for the delay.  There is some trouble with the signals.  It will only be a few minutes.  At least the air conditioning is working, and you have a comfortable seat.”

I had to smile at that.  After a 20 minute wait, we finally pull into Greensborough.  Passengers disembark, and new ones embark.  Another announcement:

“Even if you think you’re the most important person in the world, you’re not.  This is what happens when we have a signal failure at Greensborough.  It’s 1oo years old.  Thought you’d be used to it by now, but apparently you’re not.”

I nearly applauded.
