Train Security

I was sitting in the cafe car on the train in the section where the staff hangs out. (The presence of the staff tends to keep the drunks and other obnoxious types away.)

A lady brought a bag to the staff, saying it had been "left unattended". (Someone had been listening to the airport security announcements.)

The response from the staff was: "Don't you be bringing that to me, honey, it might be a bomb, it might explode on me."

She was joking, of course, but it was a little shocking to those of us that have been repeatedly told that you never ever make jokes about bombs.

Another example of how train travel differs. Or conversely, how anal air travel has become.
