Seriously, it's all or neither.
If you want to avoid men due to your own fears, then we can avoid women due to our own fears too. No picking and choosing. Don't get mad at us for following the same logic.
Either option would take out the same amount of lanes. The tram would be a bit priced but have lower long term maintenance, more efficient, better on punctuality and during severe weather. The tram would also beautify Colfax and improve the look of the city with a more restorative feel of Colfax.
You see, he was reading the last pages of Rothfuss's The Wise Man's Fears. My mind went: "He'll finish that today. Then he'll go to the bookshop or take to the interwebs, looking for the next book to fill that hole. And he'll learn that it's not coming any time soon. He'll be left hanging, with this void inside, slowly losing the will to read. He needs help. I can help!"
So I frantically searched my purse for a piece of paper, found an old receipt, and wrote "Read: Mistborn and The Natural History of Dragons." I had a beautiful plan to reach out and tell him in a respectful and composed way: "You're reading a cool book, and just in case you need something else while waiting for the last one to come out, here are two great places to start, each leading to a very satisfying series. The authors have tons of other amazing books too, so that should help heal your heart and distract you from the longing for the end of the Kingkiller Chronicle."
And then I looked up from my crumpled note.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Per a City Council Transportation, Infrastructure and Operations Committee meeting back in October, it looks like they are now requesting proposals from companies to conduct a feasibility study on what it would take to relocate the economy parking lot and add an APM between it and the new single terminal.

A women collapsed in the heat and fell down the stairs of the 75 as it was about to stop. I don't know if you're a nurse, paramedic, doctor etc. But you bloody killed it helping her up, checking her out for injuries and how she was feeling. Also making her not feel embarrassed for falling in the heat. All this while managing the tram driver who clearly wanted to get going. A+ work. Good to know there are people like you out there.
Before I get in the story, I must say I haven't seen this woman's children but she did in fact mention how her children are well behaved and how they would never be so rude etc etc (typical Karen stuff)
For the purpose of the story I'll be calling her EGG (entitled great grandma)
It was just a normal day and I was coming home from school and took a tram as usual. EGG was sitting down reading the newspaper, nothing wierd yet.
In front of her was a man just standing there with his backpack on his back. He streches his arms slightly but that didn't sit well with EGG so she smacks him with her newspaper and starts screaming:
"What does that mean?!?! (does the same stretch) You are so rude!! Bastard!! You wouldn't be acting that way if you were from here!! But you aren't!!!" and such things.
After some time of screaming at the man who was just confused and did his best to ignore her the entire time, EGG gets up and goes to the back of the tram while yelling: "Get out of my way!!"

I've recently started taking the tram to work, buying a ticket every morning. Not once have I been asked to show it. Am I the only one who pays?!
Some mates told me that around midd summer they decided to get on random trams and see where they end up. They paid for the first few tickets then wondered if anyone would notice if they walked on and off without scanning. They managed to ride each one without being stopped or questioned once.
There’s probably some sort of cctv that’ve caught their faces but they haven’t been charged or had any copper come to visit em since then. So how many of you get away with it daily? Or have you ever tried it?
Seriously, is it that important that you get on the tram within the first two seconds of stopping? I've just arrived at Nunnery Square, me and five other commuters try to get off the tram and had the try and move around and between three people, two walking side by side trying to get on first. To make things better, these three people were wearing Stachcoach fleeces, you'd think staff would know better.
I've lived in a lot of places and nowhere else have I seen this particular brand of ignorance. Years of living in Sheffield/Rotherham and I've seen it a lot, seemingly every day right now.
I have spent so, so long attempting to get to Loch Modan through Burning Steppes. Fuck my life.
Two so far this week. It’s only Wednesday.
We need your help please.
Was anyone here on the Melbourne 96 tram who saw the attacker on Monday 25 Nov at around 2:20pm? I was on the tram (didn't see the attacker but heard the commotion) and then once the tram stopped I saw a suspicious character in a brown checked shirt leaving the tram quickly. He had a beard. Can anyone confirm to me that this was indeed the attacker? It's important because I saw him again 5 minutes later a block away. The attack happened near intersection Bourke St/Queen St at 2:20pm. I saw this person north of there, at around 2:25pm, at intersection of Elizabeth and Lonsdale. My work colleague got a photo of him but only from the back and at a distance (couldn't see his face). By this stage he had taken his shirt off and was wearing a black t-shirt. We told two police officers on Lonsdale St and shared the photo with them. I have no idea whether they caught up to the individual and questioned him.
Again - if anyone on the tram can please confirm that the at... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this was approximately a year ago... I (F) was catching the tram home from the city at around 1am or 2am, can't remember exactly. I was waiting for the tram and this guy around my age (mid to late 20s) sat next to me at the tram stop. He started chatting to me, which all seemed fine as the conversation was casual and friendly. So we get on the same tram together and we continue talking, flirting a bit, if you will until I asked him where he lived. He told me he lived in a south eastern suburb, we were heading north. I was like, what are you doing getting the tram north? And he replied, coming with you. So naturally I start freaking out as he obviously decided he was going to get the my tram within the first couple of minutes of us speaking (as I only waited up to five minutes for it to arrive) I confront him and say that he is not coming with me and that he should get off the tram now. At this he becomes aggressive and starts saying things like, 'you seemed like you were into it bef... keep reading on reddit ➡
