I'm convinced the eclipse has brought out the crazy in a lot of people.

And if you think the 13 is bad, try the 32 bus down Langstrasse to Affoltern. Talk about scary.....

Aaahhh Bus 32... I used to use that bus route frequently...good times.
So one Sunday morning, my husband and I are sitting close to the front of the bus when we see the other 8 or so passengers seated in the middle and back of the bus, start, almost hurriedly, getting up from their seats and walking towards where we are seated. I thought that was weird, anyway, we're just going to stay here and get off at our stop which was the next one.

As we're getting off the bus, I notice liquid all over the floor. I look towards the back. What I see is nasty (please do not continue reading if your easily nauseated). A woman, very sorry looking one, was upchucking all over the floor.

Shame, that's why by all means I try to avoid "shuttles to watering holes" where one doesn't have to wade thru confection of boozed fellas
Other than that public transport in busy places is cool ...

Re: Another weird Zurich tram experience.

Those sort of things are only wierd because you are in Switzerland. Miscommunication errors are par for the course in the UK.

It is not uncommon to get announcements such as I got last time I was at London Bridge waiting for the Hastings train on platform 5. This was displayed on the screen as on time. At few minutes after it was due, there was an announcement to say the train was leaving from platform 3.

Re: Another weird Zurich tram experience.

That reminds me of the time I was at Waterloo once, in rush hour, waiting for the train home, that was due in about two minutes. There was suddenly an annoucement that the platform number had changed so everyone legged it over to the new platform ... only to be told via another annoucement that it was in fact leaving from the original platform

Sadly that is commonplace.

The London Bridge train that I was on only made one stop on the way back to try and make up time. That left a lot of people having to get off miles from home

When the nutter gets on the bus, why does the nutter always sit next to me?

Anyone remember Jasper Carrott ?
