sbb man just went ape

he tripped over a bag that was sticking slight out from between the seats and went berserk. after tripping, he spent 20 seconds kicking the bag further into the gap. everyone including the owner was too shocked to say anything.

That's totally normal.

I got honked today by the car behind me because I signalled to turn right, slowed down and actually turned right.

Re: sbb man just went ape

Friday, walking along that bit of road behind Pickwicks, a guy in a 3er BMW saw fit to rev his engine behind me to get me to either walk much faster or get out of the way.
I was able to expand the daft little buggers German vocabulary, don´t learn words like that in Migros Klubschule.

Just wave & smile. When people do that I pretend it's someone I know. They get very confused. It's funny.

Re: sbb man just went ape

The chaps with the refreshments trollies are cool for an Ape out, too. They can use their tanks like a battering ram against anything or anyone in their way. Apeing out should be more acceptable in daily life. Well, in normal working life. I understand it's expected behaviour in investment banking.

Re: sbb man just went ape

Probably the hundred and twenty-first bag he'd tripped over that day. Could have been worse - he could have tripped, broken his leg, then sued.

I thought the topic a sbb employee went insane and start kicking a defenceless bag......there could be various reason why the bag was there, but it's does not excuse his behaviour...the bag got Switzerlanded!

Maybe he's just having a bad day.

Perhaps he had just caught his wife in bed with another bag.

That's nothing.

I bought some brown sugar in Coop and the cashier called security.
