Re: Swiss people. The masters of passive aggressive notes

What happens most of time is that people doesn't realize there's a problem that fast. After all, no one is expecting trouble on a tram, it's stressful to live at that level of awareness. It's not lack of interest, it just takes time to realize there's a problem.

On being helpful physically, I used to think like this when I was 20 but the real world is a bit more complex. As an average man with average height and build, sometimes getting into the argument worked as a deterrent. Sometimes the other guy(s) were just looking for a fight and I got my ass kicked. Sometimes, men and women are able to de-escalate a conflict that might end awfully just by talking. So, why go first for physical intimidation instead of talking? It might end in one guy being sent to the slaughterhouse.
I read it as an excuse to not react in a situation that needed addressed. Don't worry, you're not the only one who thinks this way, it's understandable but that alone doesn't make it right. And no, I'm not pro-violence at all but a bunch of teenagers are more impressed by a man not by a woman. Like it or not, it is what it is. We're not gender blind.
