I am sitting in a train in a compartment with only baby boomers. We are waiting to depart from the station. The announcement informs us that we cannot depart yet because a person is on the track trying to commit suicide.
The response of these baby boomers was that it was "ridiculous" that we should have a delay!
When the train departed, slowly, to make sure not to kill anyone, the reaction to all this, by these baby boomers was again "ridiculous"! Why should they suffer a delay due to this all!?
I wanted to shout out: "IN ORDER WE DONT KILL ANYONE!!"
This complaining went on the entire train ride. The conductor announced that luckily the delay was only 13 minutes.
The response of these baby boomers was again "ridiculous! Shame! Complain this, complain that!"
I was truly and deeply saddened by this response. Were we to run over the suicidal person so these baby boomers wouldn't have a delay of, just, 13 minutes?
I do hope I will never again witness such an outpouring of frustration, loathing and disrespect ever again!
