Being a train conductor can be tricky: this job puts you on the front line of passenger criticism. To counterbalance the daily insults, Romain has found an infallible method… Humor!
“Ouigo’s crew will not involve the demining team. And this, even if your mother-in-law is a bomb. † This is one of the many slogans that Romain spontaneously takes out of his controller bag during his working day. If you are lucky enough to catch a train in his company one day, you may remember: the SNCF employee continues to joke, much to the delight of the passengers.
“I inform you that you do not have catering or bar on board this OUIGO train. We do our best to take you on a diet trip. †
Roman for Raw
If Romain is having a better day donning the controller comedian’s double hat, it’s also an effective way to win the sympathy of passengers. Strike announcement, delay, ticket control… The position of the controllers is delicate and Romain has understood that well. If he does receive unpleasant remarks, the Burkinabe is now also entitled to bursts of laughter and applause.
“I got a lot of tweets today, including: What a crack the driver of 7221! »
Roman for Raw
Romain has certainly won the support of the train public: selfies with passengers, thank you… Some passengers even encourage him to convert to stand-up!
With Romain, the return of the golden age of the train?
