Amusing things from the last few days…
The other week, listening to the radio, hearing the host condemning Critical Mass for daring to protest, then almost in the same breath talking about the anniversary of the Eureka Stockade, and the wonderful spirit of rebellion it invoked.
Bloke in suit at Caulfield Station who jumped off the stopper to Mordialloc on platform 2. The announcement had said an express would be along on the same platform just after it. Evidently what he thought he heard it say was that the train sitting on platform 3 was an express. Actually that was going back in the opposite direction. He ignored the platform sign, the sign inside the carriage, and boarded it anyway. Probably got a shock when it started moving.
A kid at a tram stop, being held by his dad, either in a coma or fast asleep, flat as a board, both floppy and rigid at the same time.
Cars queued up to turn right at the intersection near my mum’s place. Why? Because the old guy at the top of the queue had stopped about 2 metres before the stop line, clear of the sensor to trigger the right turn arrow. Here’s a hint, motorists: stop at the stop line. Not before it, not over it blocking the ped crossing. The sensor will see your car there, and you’ll be on your way quicker.
