Try being a tourist on the route 55.

"MEH ZUH" (Next stop, Melbourne Zoo.)

So many times, I've seen tourists looking around in confusion, wondering what the hell was just said.

Or, of course, the classic "murgle blurgle gluh delay blurgh until flurkle glunh".

But you see, that would be a sensible thing to do. And we can't have that for tram drivers now, can we?

Tram driving in Melbourne = a good way to "familiarise yourself with the city" and "learn some English".

Which means, I'm out, I'll see everyone later. Have a good one.
We will!

have a great day!

At some point in the latter half of last year (when the Z3s had their rolling destination displays replaced with LED ones - no, I know none of you know what I mean), announcements like that appeared on the route 55. I caught two such trams with them. Then ... it has mysteriously disappeared.

Tourists nothing... anyone who hasn't memorised the tram route will be looking around in confusion (ie, me)....

I wonder about that all the time though. Don't Yarra Trams at least have some sort of requirement for English-speaking ability, or do they just give jobs to the first people to step off the boat?

Maybe they were sued by the connex girl?

You think we're all idiots, don't you ...

I'm guessing you mean the hand-cranked doodad that showed where the tram was going.... buses have/had those too.
(Okay, so I don't know exactly which trams are the Z3s...)

We had a habit of scaring younger students by accident through our weirdness. We had study periods together in the library as well, and I clearly remember one day in grade 11 when three of us were sitting at one table, ostensibly doing work but telling stories while some grade eight girls were actually doing work.

My friend told me this story about how his brother first got his licence. He bought his first car, and in driving it home, crashed into an ICE CREAM TRUCK. The way he told it, it was so fucking funny. I've rarely laughed harder at anything. I couldn't breathe. I fell off my seat. My other friend was crying with laughter.

The grade eight girls got up and left.

Interesting fact: I now have 12 (twelve) copies of random nekkid streaker guy's arse in my Pictures folder.

Thank you Daniel

Yeah, but clearly it hasn't gone to much use. Only the trains that used to be owned by MTrain have clearly audible service announcements. Otherwise, it's "Nek Tay Es Mon" all the time - when the train drivers can actually be bothered putting an announcement on.

It's even worse around the private schools - the cars, egos and people get larger and driving ability goes to hell on an express elevator.
YES.

ABSOLUTELY YES.

As you know, I went to a private school. It had three carparks. My locker from grade 9 to 12 was always near one in particular, so I became very acquianted with driver stupidity. It had limited parking spaces, and could only be reached by a narrow driveway. So what did people do? Well, they'd park in the driveway for a start, reducing it to one lane. Or in the carpark itself, once it was full, they'd just stop. They wouldn't even pretend to pull over to the side. They'd just stop. So you'd have huge backlogs of cars. It was ridiculous. My mother would always come slightly late to pick me up (we finished at 3:15; that's when she left home), because even if she came earlier, we didn't get home any earlier!
