J: (recently moved to a new city) Oh Mum, I just can't get used to the rudeness of people who push and shove their way past everyone else to get on the tram. Someone is going to get hurt. People don't seem to care just as long as they get a seat. It's survival of the fittest, I am telling you.She always was a fast learner.
Me: Oh no, that sounds terrible. So does that mean you have to stand all the way to work?
J: Are you kidding? Of course not. I always get a seat.
So if you see a young, dark haired girl at your tram stop, with a look of steely eyed determination, and a stiletto shoe in one hand coming straight at you, I'd get out of the way.......... fast.
And as I said to her it could be worse, imagine catching public transport in this city......tinned sardines spring to mind.
