On the tram home from work I was stuck behind a moderate weirdo who, every time the tram stopped at a station, asked everybody around him several times if this tram was going to Mariahilferstrasse. He kept asking it at every further stop, even though everybody around him kept assuring him it was.

After the routine had been repeated for eight times and his stop was approaching, I started becoming increasingly doubtful whether he would actually get off the tram at the required stop.

By the time we got there I was certain he wouldn't.

He did.

Please make sure to describe the severe weirdo types you meet on the tram. ;)
