Where I grew up

Blacktown's never dull.

As I walk along the platform and wait for a train to the City, a child in a pram screams from across two tracks on the opposite platform. His father stands a metre away from me.

The child's father yells out, "What did he say?!?"
The child's mother yells back, "POOFTA!!!"
The child's father laughs raucously.

I'm about to grimace, when I remember to hold back my disapproving facial expressions. Gaining the attention of a proud yobbo father is probably not advisable.
