First Great Western staffer makes shocking announcement after death halts service | Daily Mail Online.

this tells of a train announcement saying, ‘sorry your train is delayed, someone couldn’t be bothered to live anymore’. it is only telling the truth, but it seems the truth is too raw for some people, so they complained. personally i find it a refreshing change from the usual ‘body on the line’. that is more impersonal and cold i think. whereas it is true that someone couldn’t be bothered to live anymore. it is not an accident that is for sure. it is a suicide.

but people dont like to be confronted with such a stark fact. that is why we say someone passed away , instead of someone died.

i suppose in these days where, god forbid, not one person must be  offended means everyone will have to stop saying that. ‘body on the line’ then from now on. or maybe even that has someone complaining, and so ‘an incident on the line’ may well be the anodyne phrase to use.

though someone could complain why the trains are delayed and cancelled for a trivial thing like an incident on the line, or complaining of a lack of information; and u end up pleasing no one, all because u try to please everyone.

    it is indeed. unusual because the tactful thing to do is to be emotionally neutral. it happens quite often here in uk, train disrupted because of a suicide. i dont hear of it in s.e.asia. either it happens but the authorities keep it quiet and dont even mention it which they can do because people there dont complain about delays or want to know why… i mean i have never heard of anyone being compensated for delays in s.e.asia.unlike here in uk and europe. or people in s.e.asia dont commit suicide that much or use other means.
