The Light Rail in Houston is a great way to get around town and I always thought it was a cool job for the drivers until one day we were riding on one and a car crossed in front.. No one was hurt but it certainly felt like we were going to tip over! Scary.

I don't think it's possible to be a train engineer or light rail operator and not hit either cars or people or animals at some point, comes with the job really.

I was on the San Diego Trolley light rail as a passenger once when it hit someone, guess wasn't accidental though, was a suicide.

Happens in Vancouver with the sky train a few times a year, but it's an automated system so no operators inside the trains.

I thought about when still living in San Diego applying at the trolley, but with my digestive issues, I don't don't see any feasible way I could do that kind of job, I never know when I will need a bathroom facility and often with little warning, and well light rail trains have no bathroom facilities lol, same reason I never applied to be a bus driver....and many other jobs, people don't always take digestive issues seriously, but such issues do keep people from certain types of jobs, can't risk working jobs that don't have easy and quick access to the bathroom facilities.

Sure can complicate life sometimes.

I suspect mine was due to a GI infection back in 1999, it all started with that infection. My grandfather had been in hospital for 2 months before dying in late 1999, and I picked up something from spending so much time in the hospital, and ever since then, my GI system has never been the same, then later in life add in a hiatal hernia and my GI system is just a mess from the stomach down, I assume the esophagus is is okay though since I have no issues or pain there.

Maybe when they fix the 2 hernias I have on on each side, they can just make a little detour and fix the stomach, I know that surgery doesn't have the best success and end up back with a hiatal hernia, but if already under, seems worth trying....lol

Hopefully I will see the GI doctor sometime in the next 3-4 months.

I've simultaneously just heard the first frog and seen the first mosquito of the season. All I have to do now is introduce them to each other.

The mosquito wants to meet you, not the frog.

I think the mosquito would rather meet scouse, they seem rather partial to him.
