In light of this classic being sent to me today, I'm going to share you the stories of a kid I'll call E.

I volunteer at a scenic railway, and little did I know that I'd meet the embodiment of autism, in its purest form.
>One day, standing around talking in the engine house with others
>As usual, trying to figure out what everyone will be doing, what's for lunch, etc.
>A wild autist appears, and starts to approach the boss dressed in conductor's attire.(There's a dress code for taking tickets on the train, needless to say, I hate people, so I stay in the shop.
>"Hey [redacted], what whistle are we going to put on this?
>Friends and I facepalm and walk away as E starts to play Glenn miller on his phone for everyone to hear.

You'd think they would want to shut up and listen to the train noises.

>>715453
>The next week, my friend, the boss and I go out to lunch.
>"Hey, did you guys write something up in [whatever train news site, I forget what it's name is] as "train crew."
>Friend and I reply no
>Boss is further confused, nobody that he talked to since that workday posted it.
>Proceeds to read it aloud to us.
>pic related

>Fast forward a bit more to another lunch
>Apparently E isn't allowed to be there without supervision
>Shit used to go missing when he was left unsupervised
>No new posts from "train crew"

>Another leap forward
>Normal, quiet(relatively speaking), work day.
>Mount the gauge cluster on the locomotive, another guy, M, comes up to work on another thing in the cab, so my friend and I stand aside.
>Boss comes up to talk with M about what needs to be done
>"HEY [redacted], HOW'S THE CAB LOOKIN. WILL THE GAUGES BE ABLE TO GO ON TODAY? HAVE YOU GUYS DECIDED ON A WHISTLE?
>"Well, E, why don't you talk to M, he's working on that right now."
>M gives the biggest look of annoyance and hatred I've seen on him, and he's not one to easily get in a bad mood.
>friend and I chuckle quietly, and make our escape down the back of the tender
>later on hear him bugging our mechanic, the boss, and a few other guys by coming up to them and playing various whistle samples.

Anyone have the video where a guy comes out of the cab and puts his arms out as the train passes?

Now for the grand finale.

>Train cars are being switched around in the yard to get the unusable locomotive and passenger car out of the way, and to put 2 more cars onto the evening train.
>E is riding along with our mechanic, who's running the switcher, and one other guy.
As an aside, we have 3 tracks running into the engine house, and the middle one has a blue flag on it, meaning nothing may proceed onto it.
>Switcher gets back to where the tracks start to diverge
>Mechanic tells the other guy to line the switches to get the switcher out of everything's way
>E also gets off
>Other guy has the switches lined to go into 3, gives mechanic the go-ahead
>He won't go
>E has the switch lined to 2, where myself and other people are working on the steam engine.
>E insists that our mechanic go ahead, that everything is clear
>Mechanic isn't having it
>Sets the brakes on the switcher, and comes out of the cab ripping into E for trying to send a train down a track where people are working
>E finally is left speechless
>E quietly leaves, and nobody notices until we take a break
>Everyone complains of how much of a moron he is.

But seriously, when two identical jacks don't go up at the same rate, and nobody notices, fun things can happen.
