I'm not actually sure if this was serious, but I'll fall for it. LNER apologises for using "such language" because the conductor said "Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls...." One "non-binary" passenger got offended because he/she/they felt left out of such grouping. REALLY?????

Absurd doesn't even begin to describe it.

(If this needs to be merged please do as I wasn't sure which existing thread covered it, although I didn't think it fitted the "new manager" thread. Although thinking about it, there's a manager on LNER looking for a job after using such disgusting language)

Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

If the management had any sense* they would have pointed out that this was pure mischief making by 2 rail union staff.

*I was going to say balls but no doubt that would have offended these idiots.

God almighty.

Perhaps procedures to change :
"Good morning all those binary and non-binary".

I will now get on my 'Soapbox' about all of this and my dear wife will clearly bear the brunt of it.

We have been saying how insane these people are for decades now.

Yet all that happened was the same people now run things.

The passengers, or customers, or honoured guests, or however they’re referred to should take it in turns to complain on a daily basis about being omitted from any announcements.
“I identify as a wombat and I felt excluded”.
“The announcement said Good Morning and I was having a bad morning. I am offended and outraged”
“I am not a gentle man. I am a violent psychopath”

There are plenty of jobs now where you are ordered not to use boys and girls, men and women, ladies and gentlemen etc. I think my orders on this came a few years ago. I'm surprised people are shocked anymore. Clown world full of clown people. Bring on the Chinese I say, they won't be so tolerant.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

The world is becoming more ridiculous and the more this rubbish gets pandered to then the worse it will get.
"Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen and the other 120 varieties of sexuality that you can be classified by. I would read them all out but we will in fact be at the next station before I complete the list"!
I accept that things are not as they once were but as a friend of mine put it - "if you have a cock then you are a bloke"!
Everyone should be included but this is just beyond stupid.
