Running Out Of Patience
One of the passengers from the rear suddenly screamed, “If you take her out, we’ll have one more seat.” Things are about to get much, much worse! Jessica stood there watching as her face became drenched in arrogance. “This is my personal space!” yelled the young lady. “No, it isn’t,” said another passenger. The officer’s tolerance was rapidly dwindling.
The only people you have to think about when driving a car are the other passengers. There should be no issues if everyone follows the lane’s rules. If you don’t have a car and must rely on public transportation, it’s a different story. Thousands of people cram onto the train just to get to and from work. There are some unspoken rules on the train, just as there are on the highways. Everyone on the train decided to teach one lady a lesson in train etiquette when she refused to follow the rules.
Jessica Huit was driving home after a long day at work. She was rushing to catch the train during rush hour. She’d become accustomed to the frantic pace of New York City’s streets. Long train rides on overcrowded trains. She figured she’d seen just about everything on these trains.
It can be extremely uncomfortable to be a passenger on a crowded train, especially during rush hour. It’s sometimes so bad that finding a seat is nearly impossible. It is customary for one person to take only one seat at a time, leaving the remaining seats free for other passengers. Jessica couldn’t believe what she’d gotten herself into today.
Looking For A Seat
By the time Jessica boarded her train, she was completely exhausted. She expected some crowding, but she planned to find a seat to rest for the hour-and-a-half ride ahead of her. In search of an open seat, she pushed her way past people in the aisle. She paced aimlessly through the carriages until she came across one.
That was the final carriage to arrive. There was an empty seat next to a young woman. She looked around at the people who were still standing, puzzled as to why no one had taken the spot. It appeared to be in good condition, aside from a bag on the seat. She approached the young lady and requested a seat. She was completely unaware of what was about to happen to her.
There are several instances where you can see someone engaging in antisocial behavior when trapped in a confined space and surrounded by a swarm of people. In reality, the suffocating conditions on a train often bring out the worst in people. Some people yell conversations into their phones, listen to music too loudly, or eat too loudly. However, what this lady did on the train was far more heinous.
No Rules For Her
“Can I take a seat here?” Jessica politely asked of the woman, motioning to the empty seat. The woman’s massive Louis Vuitton bag was sprawled next to her, effectively taking up two seats and preventing other passengers from taking a seat. Jessica was about to realize that this one woman thought she was above the train’s rules.
Jessica was completely ignored by the woman, who had earphones in her ears and her gaze fixed on her phone. She pretended to be oblivious to her surroundings. The train had come to a complete stop at this point, and security had entered the carriage. As the train passed her, Jessica became aware of the tension on board. She looked around at the young woman’s irritated expressions on her lips.
Officers Were There
Jessica realized she wasn’t the first person to ask for this seat and be turned down or dismissed. It was without a doubt the reason these officers had come to see her. Jessica took a step back and watched what was going on. The cop walked right past her and headed straight for the young lady. It’s likely that she’s already been reported. What exactly did she do?
‘Don’t Touch My Stuff!’
The officer motions for her to put her purse in the overhead trunk with a nod. “No…. don’t touch my stuff,” she screams, swatting his hand away. The officer then said in response, “Madam, bring it up there or I’m going to get you off the train right now.”
The officer offered her his hand to help her move her purse. “Don’t touch my stuff!” She yelled again as she removed her earphones and raised her head from beneath her hat. The officer politely retracted his hand and replied, “Can we make someone sit there?” “No,” she said, “I don’t want someone sitting next to me.” There are more seats available!”
The guy crammed into the seat next to her could no longer take it. He interrupts her and says, “It’s already a late train, you’re stopping everyone.” The woman shoots him a scathing look before continuing her standoff with the cops. She is adamant about not giving in. The train’s other passengers had had their fill.
The people’s dissatisfaction was now palpable as nearby passengers erupted in applause. “There isn’t space!”, “No, there isn’t space!”, “There is just standing room!” they exclaimed angrily. Jessica assumed that this woman denied this seat to everyone else. There were a lot of people in line. The officer continued.
He was more stern with his words this time. “Ma’am, take off the bag or I’ll take you off the train right now,” he added. Jessica could sense the audience’s rage. She had to have been acting entitled for quite some time. “If you take her out, we’ll have one more seat,” another commuter screamed from the rear. However, this just made matters worse.
The entitled woman then raises her head and yells to a nearby commuter, “You’re not disabled, you’re not pregnant.” I don’t like bed bugs. I’m not interested in your odor. You’re revolting.” Jessica was taken aback by the woman’s audacity. She didn’t think she should be on the train in the first place. Despite this, she persisted.
“This is my personal space!” exclaimed the young lady. “No, it isn’t,” said another passenger. However, the officer’s composure was soon wearing down. She went on, “I don’t care if I’m 90 pounds, 50 pounds, or 300 pounds; this is my personal room!” Jessica realized right away that everyone was making fun of her. Meanwhile, the officer had reached his limit. He’d had enough of all of this.
Get Her Off
“I want her off the train. Get her off the train,” he screamed angrily and motioned to his fellow passengers to do the same. The young lady was taken aback. She was taken aback by the fact that anyone could tell her what to do. “Do you like your personal space? You’ll get it outside,” he said as the passengers applauded in unison.
Not Backing Down
The woman stared at the cop through her phone as if she couldn’t believe she’d been called out on her rude behavior. She, on the other hand, was not going down without a fight. She flatly refused to cooperate, despite the fact that she had already delayed the train by 25 minutes. The cop, on the other hand, was not about to take a seat.
Walk Of Shame
Before the other officers began striding towards her, the woman remained hesitantly immobile in her seat. As she stood up from her seat and took her luggage, she shook her head and rolled her eyes. Jessica had never seen anything like it when she walked off the train with the officers. Jessica couldn’t understand how anyone could feel so entitled that she needed to rely on others to defend her.
A fellow commuter posted the video online, and the viewers were almost as irritated with the young woman as the train passengers were. “Perfect example of someone who feels “entitled… just plain selfish,” one person said. One said, “When a whole lot of people ask you to leave, you should know something is wrong.”
“I’m happy someone filmed it. Her bad conduct will haunt her for a long time as a result of this film. It is not difficult to be kind, ” One YouTuber even commented: “Girl…. buy yourself a car or a helicopter where you can choose who gets in or out, lol,” another user suggested. Another excellent point was brought up by another user: “‘You’re not impaired,’ you say… lots of people have invisible disorders! What a disgusting woman.”
New Jersey Transit
An NJ Transit spokeswoman responded to the now-viral video by saying, “We urge customers to make any seat accessible by putting bags on their laps or on overhead luggage racks and complying with the guidance of train crews.” Furthermore, the woman who posted the video stated that passengers were upset with the woman who had postponed everyone’s travel, not with NJ Transit.
Got Her Seat
After the young woman had left and the officer had given the train the green light to resume running, another commuter standing beside her motioned Jessica to take her seat. Jessica couldn’t help but be moved by this kind stranger’s response to the events of the day. It was as if he instantly restored her faith in humanity.
Life In The City
Jessica has thankfully not witnessed any more greedy behavior on the train since that day, but she does occasionally wander through the crowded train after work in the hopes of finding a vacant seat. “It’s the cost of life in a big city like New York. Everywhere we look, there are examples of both positive and poor acts. That’s what makes us human, right? Seeing something wrong and getting things right.”
Almost everyone has had a bad ride on public transportation at some point. Not all of our trips on public transportation would be enjoyable. There are times, however, when people simply cannot be reasoned with. This leads us to our next story about a kid who was obnoxious and disrespectful on public transportation. After the kid refused to act appropriately, a man took it upon himself to teach him a lesson.
Someone Should Teach Him A Lesson
Riding the subway as a commuter can be a little unsettling. It’s also difficult to find a seat, and even if you do, you can only take one at a time. On the other hand, this young man believed he was entitled to more than three subway seats, and he refused to let anyone else board. This individual, on the other hand, had none of it.
Not everyone has the luxury of driving to and from work and home on a daily basis. That is why public transportation is so beneficial to those of us who do not have access to a car. Those who do not feel obligated to respect others will be forced to confront us as a result of this.
An Eye For An Eye
Public transportation, for some strange reason, can bring out the absolute worst in people, and by absolute worst, we mean THE ABSOLUTE WORST feature of people. Trains and buses have devolved into a dog-eat-dog environment, and this article demonstrates that many of the passengers in their vicinity are far too cruel and have no regard for others. On your daily commutes, did you come across people like this?
In a variety of situations on the train or bus, you may come across someone or something that offends you. After all, there are a lot of people in a small space, which is why there are always times when you travel and meet people who offend the people around them.
There will be times when a passenger refuses to give up their seat, while others pile their belongings next to theirs on the bench, making it impossible for anyone to sit there. There will be occasions when people listen to loud music or make a long-distance phone call. Only a few of the most perplexing encounters on public transportation are listed below.
As previously stated, selfish passengers believe they have the right to sit next to their own seats, obstructing the ability of others to sit. But do you realize what’s even worse? Those who sit on the floor with their legs as a second seat. It’s bad enough to take up more than one seat, but refusing to give up the spare seat when someone politely requests it? This is simply unacceptable.
People will react in a variety of ways in situations like this. Some would attempt to reach an agreement in the most peaceful manner possible. Some people would be just as rude if they constantly asked for their seat and didn’t stop until they got it.
Looking For Trouble
You have no way of knowing what that obnoxious passenger is up to, of course. It’s impossible to predict whether that obnoxious passenger will suddenly rise and try to fight you. Do you think it’s worth it to get into a violent brawl just to get a seat on public transportation? On the other hand, the victim in this story has done something you wouldn’t believe.
A Viral Tweet Post
Everything that happened in this story was captured in a tweet by the user @da_drought_3. Her tweet went viral almost immediately, garnering over 137,000 likes, 47,000 retweets, and thousands of comments as of May 2019. Let’s take a look at what made her post so viral.
Faith In Humanity
In the Twitter post’s comment section, there were a lot of comments that seemed to extol the person in the story. The following are a few examples of these remarks: “As a new yorker, this GIVES ME LIFE,” “My faith in humanity has been restored,” and “It’s the only way kids will learn!” But what was the tweet that got a lot of people talking?
Capturing Unforgettable Moments
The young woman who was able to capture the incredible moment on Twitter was named Isabel Kim. She went by the handle @da_drought_3 on social media and is very active on Twitter, where she is well-known for her posts. The majority of her posts are about things she enjoys, as well as moments she has captured and decided to share with her large online audience.
Just An Average Day
The day began to become mundane for her, but she noticed something strange happening right in front of her eyes on her way to work on the subway. As a result, she photographed what she saw and shared them with her Twitter followers.
He Has Another Plan
It’s necessary to put the situation in context before fully comprehending what happened in Isabel’s tweet. Some metro trains are not divided into sections, as those familiar with the system are aware. Instead of having a seat for each passenger, these subway trains may have long benches that can accommodate multiple people.
A Young, Annoying Boy
This is exactly what occurred in this instance. While three people could easily share that bench, this young boy became the story’s biggest irritant when he had other ideas than allowing others to use the metro seats.
People who work in the public transportation industry are all familiar with the “lay downer,” a self-explanatory category of person. In Isabel’s Twitter post, this young boy aptly described this type of traveler. By putting his legs on the bench and leaning up against his mother, this young boy felt entitled to the entire bench. This type of passenger is undeniably aggravating.
He took two seats as a result of his actions when he put his foot on the table. He appears completely oblivious to the harm and discomfort he caused to everyone else on the subway while playing games on his mobile device. Is he really that egotistical? We don’t know if he was aware of it or not, but we are unconcerned about the rest of the world.
Ignoring People’s Request
Because their lives are more difficult than everyone else’s, everyone agrees to give up their public transportation seats to others who require them more than you, such as the elderly, people with disabilities, pregnant women, and others. At the very least, they require assistance. If you fail to do so, the other passengers on public transportation will undoubtedly look down on you.
Parenting Skills Gone Wrong
Despite three people asking him to move his legs so that he could sit in one of the two spaces he was occupying, the child ignored them and continued to play his mobile device game. The fact that the rude boy’s mother was present but did nothing to address the situation and remained oblivious added to the aggravation of the situation.
The Mother Refused As Well
This boy not only disregarded everyone’s demands, but his mother also refused to show any consideration. She was almost as clueless about the situation as her son, which helps to explain why he is the way he is. She had switched phones, just like her son, and was completely absorbed in whatever she was listening to. Those who remained on the metro considered the situation to be hazardous.
They Got Frustrated
And with each passing second, the people waiting in front of him became angrier, and the boy felt the same frustration he felt on the subway when everything was focused on him. To try to solve the problem, the boy knelt down to allow others to sit, but this was ineffective because it irritated them even more.
Because his legs were still occupying spaces on the bench, his attempts to assist the people up the bench were futile. Despite the fact that the passengers on the subway did nothing, they were already annoyed by the boy and believed that negotiating with him would be futile. That is until a complete stranger arrived and saved the day! Was it someone or something?
A mystery man approached and stared at the disrespectful boy as he began to play with his phone after a short while. Many people have responded to the tweet, claiming that the man wearing black sunglasses and a hairstyle that resembles Elton John’s could be him.
It Wasn’t Him
Clearly, it wasn’t him. What would that British superstar do in such a subway? The comedic impact of the plot was not diminished. It only added to the hilarity of the story because it appeared to be Elton John in the subway. What did the Elton John impersonator do to turn this tweet into a worldwide sensation? What did he do that was so extraordinary?
Elton John Look A Like
The man, who resembled Elton John, waited for the kid to notice that he wanted to sit down and clear the way so that he, like everyone else before him, could take a seat. As a result, this mysterious man became even more irritated by the boy’s arrogance and actions when he chose to ignore another person yet again.
Taking Matters Into His Own Hands
This man was clearly offended by this young child’s insensitivity, as well as his misunderstanding of the situation and the tension around him. He wanted to take control of the situation and tell himself that if no one else would, he would. What exactly was this man up to? This guy, on the other hand, was teaching the kid a lesson he’d never forget, a lesson he’d remember until he was much older.
