On Tuesday one of my colleagues was telling us over lunch about how he used to be a train driver. We were all a bit surprised and thought he was winding us up, but eventually we believed him. He said that he finally left the job after the third time he had someone throw themselves in front of his train.

Fair enough. It must be a bit traumatic to have that sort of thing happen.

Wednesday morning he didn’t turn up for work because someone threw themselves in front of his car. Well not quite, but close enough: a child on a bike came out from between a couple of parked cars. We all agreed this was a bit spooky.

I understand that the child is OK. He didn’t hit them but just clipped the bike. This colleague often has reason to move equipment from one part of the building to another using a trolley… we may have to take precautions.

(I am reminded of this video which Pootergeek brought to my attention last week)
