FML - The follow-up
Annalivliv Say more :
So I tried to follow this up before but my comment wasn't posted properly. OP here. Turns out I broke my ankle in 3 different places and tore some ligaments. However, I figure it could be much worse. I'm just happy I could finally get something published. The banter in the comments isn't bad either.

I'm a train engineer. In some countries they refer to the one who runs the train as train drivers, U.K. for example. It's a matter of local dialect, it's not wrong either way.

In Australia they are also known as train drivers, I see nothing wrong in what OP said as it still gets the intended meaning across.

Comment glitch was fixed but it looks like it's back. Until it's settled for sure, here's Annalivliv's follow up: "Hi OP here, I'm Aussie (and a girl FML says I'm a bloke.) We've always referred to my uncle as a train driver so I figured "drive" would be a better verb than "I got to watch my train ride/roll/piss off home." No worries though, just hope you got a laugh at my expense. :) "

So you were there for 10 minutes /after/ breaking your ankle? "It looks like you broke your ankle! Here, let me help you u—" "Stop, just let me watch my train depart first!"
