Trains v woke

Someone on Twitter dug out that the complainant had posted something using the phrase “ladies and gents”. Who is also a rail union person, so it was nice of them to chuck a fellow union member under the bus there. 

 

 

“I was sat with Laurence when this tweet was sent. Both of us are non-binary and we were both alarmed and uncomfortable by the lack of inclusion.”

Jesus wept. Presumably the approved language is “hello humans”. 

They were happy enough to use ladies and gentlemen when it suited them. Makes you wonder whether there is an agenda here against a fellow union member...

sad to see

"Train managers should not be using language like this". From LNER. The world has gone mad. 

What it should be is "Good morning ladies and gentleman and any hypersensitive bellends that may be aboard this service" 

"Both of us are non-binary and we were both alarmed and uncomfortable by the lack of inclusion"

Don't know why they're complaining, they got addressed twice.

Maybe the announcements should be like in Kinky Boots:

"ladies, gentlemen and those who have yet to make up your minds"

 

Risky is entirely lacking in tunning abiltiy tbh

I'd offer to mentor him but, well you know.

This beggars belief. What a pair of tools.

The Union should get right behind the conductor, and ban these complainants for life while it's at it. 

Fairly obvious trolling. The responder should be reprimanded for pandering to it. 

Who cares?

It must be exhausting being so furious about everything.

 

I'm sure the train line acted quite sensibly in offering an apology. Who would want a repeat of Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover? And then by splashing it all over the papers! 

“Another thousand Tory votes....”

Negative, sozm88

Don’t know if this was meant to be sarcastic but it is literally true. This kind of beef between workers is exactly the kind of thing that unions should sort out without the need to get bosses involved. I would give the rep a quiet ticking off if I were at the union,

"I don't know why they are complaining, they got addressed twice"

Therefore was it not discriminatory against those who were only addressed once?!
