This one is on me. After a long day of work, I want to take the tram home. In rush hour, the tram usually consists of 2 parts, but this time it’s only one. I don’t notice it and the tram driver notifies me by ringing his bel. I hurry to the tram, wave at the driver and shout a ‘thank you!’ when hopping in. Since it’s crowded, the only spot left is behind the driver’s cubicle.

Driver: You should pay better attention!

I wonder if this is directed at me. Didn’t I already thank the driver?

Driver: You should look better if the tram is one or two parts.

I feel a bit uncomfortable; is he reprimanding me? Should I respond? There is a blocked window between us; does he know I’m behind him?

Driver: If you’d miss the tram because of that, it’s your own fault, you know that. It’s not on me then…. Okay, love you, bye bye!

Turns out the driver had a headset and was having a telephone conversation with someone about the same topic.
