that cartoon is almost correct.when we came here a lifetime ago,Sydney only had old single storey trains,"red rattlers " they were known as. The only diffrence from the old chugging trains we see in 3rd world trains,is we didn`t have people travelling on the roofs,they were so antiquated,the passengers shut the doors if they were so inclined,other than that we travelled with them wide open. Peak time coming home from work in the evening,we looked and felt a bit like that cartoon. Then,heaven,! along came these silver .trains,double deckers,......
progress,but on our train line,it was still the old red rattler,with one double decker tacked on at the end,and one up front. Needless to say everyone dived for that carriage. We`ve come on a ton since then,but in 1961 the population was only 10 million,seems like a backwater now thinking back,but it was beautiful,so innocent ,when a murder happened it was front page news for days,now theres at least one if not more every single day. Get the violins out now !

Haha they are called flip flops here. In Australia, however, they are called “thongs” 😀 that here are undies for us wee women.

Glad I didn`t go to Australia would hate to walk around the garden in my thong. biggrin.gif

I hope i`m not going to offend anyone,but can`t resist this after Wombat`s latest cartoon. My youngest daughter who is a real character used to travel to work with me in the morning in our packed train. One morning she said to 2 men,who had themselves all nicely spread eagled reading their morning papers,"if you shut your legs and he shuts his legs me and my mum could sit down. Stony silence,no response,as was the Aussie way,so we stood holding on to the pole in front of them. Suddenly there was the most disgusting smell, I caught her eye and she was trying not to give away the fact that she had deliberately done the UNFORGIVABLE . One of the men,enjoying his paper,with his little gold rim glasses,soon got a whiff off it,it was very hard not to laugh watching his little nose twitch like a rabbits. Serves himright chauvenist pig !

I can’t stand men like that. But I can’t see clearly enough wombat’s cartoon.

But, sounds like your daughter got them moving!

I'm sure they got her drift tongue.gif

Growing up, I was alway taught to give my seat up on transport to my elders, which i did. Rules have changed now children rarely give their seats up. A significant number of older travellers are equally bad mannered, often sitting on the outside of two seats to put off anyone wanting to sit beside them or using baggage to the same effect. It's a different world out there.

I got a lesson in giving up the seat very early on in my life here. I was on a train with my 2 wee ones,maybe 4 and 5 they were,and I got them up to give a Chinese woman the seat and she sat her kid in it . !

oh thank God Wombat,it would kill brown dogs as the Aussies say. I remember it it like yesterday,and it was over 30 years ago,good for a laugh when reminiscing. It`s a sad world if we can`t have a laugh.

very clever cartoons do you make them yourself Wombat. a lot of truth in the flag one,an obsession with some folk. A woman I worked with was a crashing bore about her son being such a "true blue Ausssie"he even had the Aussie flag wrapped round his toilet seat .crap crap,then in the next breath she tells us he`s just opened a new factory in Singapore,What !!! what about the Aussie workers who would miss out on a job.
