We're pointing at the conductor's indication board, which is a zebra-striped sign. If the sign is in front of my window, it means that the entire train is on the platform. They don't trust us to just look, so required procedure is to point to it at every station before we open the doors. The absolute biggest violation a conductor can make is opening the doors where there isn't a platform. If that ever happens, the first thing supervision is going to ask you is 'Did you point to the board?'"

No different from what the Marine Corps does when people start fucking up. You guys don't wanna look stupid? Don't perform stupid.

Different enough that it can qualify for Today's Installment.

The military exists to "eliminate" the individual, so they fix a problem by addressing the "collective." Most punishment is meted out to everyone in a given group. If you won't correct your own behavior, then the group will tire of you and eventually engage in physical coercion.
