Usually customers accused me of being so many minutes late when in fact I was exactly on time but the tram in front was missing. I don’t know how many swallowed my explanation that the tram in front was simply missing..

It seems that nowadays passengers are much more aggressive/vindictive to tram drivers than in the past.

That meant that it was the Mont Albert line that suffered cuts, and it was Kew crews that consequently suffered. However, even the 42 shared part of their road, and one service that was "temporarily suspended" (management term for "permanently" - because they refused to employ sufficient staff) in this way was the first LaTrobe St shuttle, late in the morning peak; the next LaTrobe service was another Kew run - NOT Preston. It would have been so easy to cancel the latter tram rather than the former, thus saving Kew crews from the ire of waiting passengers which would then be vent upon those #@?!$ (LoL) from Preston.
