Rude residents call csx on me

  • these are good suggestions. i worked for a railroad contractor for a while and know some of the safety rules. amtrakid you did good by staying 50 from the track, however if you are trackside again and that lady crosses the track you can get her for trespassing on railroad property-that might teach her to mind her own business.
    however IF YOU have to cross the tracks for any reason do so at a grade crossing, if 1 is not within walking distance ease up to the tracks and LOOK BOTH ways just as you would crossing the street-DO NOT step on the head (top)of the rail as it is usually very slick walk carefully then repaet on the opposire side then walk a bit faster to clear the 50ft mark

    Well, from first hand knowledge here is my advice.

    First. You have to know you are in the right. Meaning, You know you are not on private property, or have permission. You are with in the safe legal limits of the trains and yards.

    Second: If she approaches you again, remain completly gentleman like and polite. "I am sorry Mam', but it is my understanding that I am not breaking any rules, therefor, can be here if I so chose." She will yell some threat about the police. Respond to something like.. "Well, Mam' if you insist. I am sorry if you feel that is needed. If you do, I will be right here for another half hour"

    Most likely, that will roast her goat more than anything else. Old busy bodies love drama. Kill that, and they have nothing on you. Plus if the cops do show up, Same deal, be polite and nice as you can. Explain. "I am sorry officer that she called you guys out. She always threatens me with this and that. It hard to ernjoy wathcing trains with harrassing me. Sorry you got dragged into this too." Cop will probably give her a lecture and you will make and important freind.[;)]

    Good luck.

    Perfect!!! Just perfect.

    No drama, no problem except for a few minutes of a cop's time.

  • This is probably the same type of woman who calls the police almost every day with reports of people lurking outside her house,or space aliens trampling her rose bushes[:(!].
