A train driver in Zurich encouraged passengers to 'show the finger' to a tram after it blocked his path.

Wouldn't a Floridian have shot the tram? Or tried to eat its face?

I recently read an article which said Switzerland has one of the highest rates of suicide in the world. I don't think I'd want to upset anyone too much so my finger would have stayed down. Besides, the last time I gave that particular sign it made the driver I was aiming at very mad and he ended up following me up an exit ramp.

OR we could have given the pluck you, finger eleven, the knuckles, the johnny cash finger, the original xman, one-finger salute, the cock, being rude, finger pen!s, California Howdy, the Pierre Trudeau, Fickle Finger of Fate, or the notable "Mister Digit Finger Puppet" that our dear leader once referred to.
If both hands are free, we might tell another that we don't like his horse, either.
My personal favorite was two little old white-haired ladies who ran a stop sign in front of me and flipped me the bird as they passed by.
I liked them.

Yeah that'll teach him!

Or, as wiredog suggests, a shotgun blast across the bow might get his attention.

“But that’s not what the speakers are there for,” Friedli added.

And may I inquire, Herr Friedli, what the speakers are there for, then?

They are taking action?

Yup. The tram riders will now each be issued a dozen eggs, to throw at the train ...

Next time, they chalet their keesters up against the glass.
