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.
