On the train

Seen on the train yesterday morning:

Bloke in a long leather raincoat and sunglasses, evidently trying to do a Neo impression. It wasn’t a cold day; he must have been boiling.

Guy off to uni in Footscray, telling a girl that over there “there’s loads of Africans and Asians” and how he felt a little out of his comfort zone, then stumbling over his words and cutting his sentence short when it dawned upon him that the girl he was chatting up was in fact Asian. Abandon ship! Abort mission! Head for the hills!

More amusement when the girl mentioned her mother and brother were sitting nearby on the train. The wavering in his voice seemed to indicate they might be cramping his style.

Lady doing an admirable job of balancing while standing on the MATHS express bit, flicking thruogh her book, not holding onto anything, showing the skills of a tightrope walker. Then we stopped at South Yarra, and while the train wasn’t moving at all, she bumped into two people.

  1. There is a nasty bump in the track just before Armadale station that tends to catch a lot of people off guard. I am used to standing up on the train now after being on a lot more bumpier tram rides.
