Every generation claims that they are those with good habits, that they listened to so-called “better music,” that their clothes are better than their entitled children. Well, what are you going to think? Perhaps that’s the case. We are all aware that while they are on the subway, there are a few unspoken regulations that everyone must follow. Some kids, however, might be a little rude and outright disrespectful. That’s why this guy took it upon himself to teach a lesson to this kid after he refused to obey the rules.
Someone Should Teach Him A Lesson
Being in the subway as a commuter can be a little awkward. It is often very challenging to search for a seat, so once you can happen to locate a seat for yourself, you are only permitted to take one seat at a time. This young man, though, felt he had a claim to more than three seats on the subway, stopping anyone from having a seat. This guy, however, didn’t have any of that.
Not all of us are fortunate to get our own car to travel every day on our way to work and back home. That’s why public transit is great and it makes it a little better for those of us who don’t have a car. Nonetheless, this also implies that we would have to meet persons who believe that there is no reason to give extra consideration to anyone else.
An Eye For An Eye
Public transport has the ability to bring out the absolute worst in everyone for some strange reason, and by absolute worst, we mean THE ABSOLUTE WORST characteristic of people. Trains and buses are becoming a world of dog-eat-dog, and this article is a testament to the fact that many passengers are just too insensitive and don’t care about anyone else around them. During your daily commutes, did you encounter people like this?
When you meet someone or something on a train or bus, there are a wide variety of situations that you think are offensive. After all, in an enclosed space, there are a lot of people together, so there would always be moments when you would travel and meet other people behaving in some way that they don’t seem to know they’re inconveniencing the other citizens around them.
There would be times when a passenger would not surrender their seats, while some would place their belongings next to theirs on the seat, ultimately preventing other people from sitting there. There would even be times when individuals would play music out loud and have a loud phone call that would last for more than 30 minutes. These are just a few of the most irritating experiences on public transport that you will encounter.
There would be selfish passengers, as previously mentioned, who believe they are entitled to the seat next to their own, preventing other people from sitting down. But are you aware of what’s worse than that? Those who put the other seat on their legs. Taking up more than one seat is already awful, but refusing to give up the spare seat when someone kindly asks for it? Definitely impermissible.
Various people would deal in different ways with such scenarios. Some would approach it by attempting to make an agreement in the most peaceful way possible, while some would also be as rude to argue as they constantly ask for their seat, never stopping until they have been given the seat.
Looking For Trouble
You have no idea what the rude passenger could do. It is not possible to say whether this rude passenger will suddenly stand up and attempt to fight you. Do you think it’s worthwhile participating in a violent fight in order to be able to sit in public transport? Well, the victim did something you don’t believe in in this story.
A Viral Tweet Post
A Twitter post from the user @da_drought_3 captured all of the events in this story. As it had amassed over 137,000 likes, 47,000 retweets, and thousands of comments as of May 2019, her twitter post immediately became a viral sensation.
Faith In Humanity
There were many comments in the comment section of the Twitter post that seemed so positive about the person in the story. Some of these comments include, “It gives me life as a new Yorker,” “My faith in humanity has been reestablished,” and “it’s the only way kids learn!” But what about the tweet many people agreed with? Is it the right thing to do?
Capturing Unforgettable Moments
The name of the young woman who was able to capture the incredible moment on Twitter was Isabel Kim. She was known as @da drought 3 in social media and is quite active on Twitter because her posts make her well known. Most of her posts have things that she likes and the various moments she has captured and decided to share with her huge virtual audience.
Just An Average Day
It was a mundane day for her, but as she took the subway on her way to work, she witnessed something unusual going on in front of her own eyes. To guide her to start taking photos of what she saw on Twitter for her to share with her followers.
He Has Another Plan
To truly understand what happened in Isabel’s tweet, we must first put things into context in order to understand what was happening in the situation. Many familiar with the metro know that there are trains that are not individually sectioned. Which means that these subway trains will have long benches that can hold more than one passenger instead of providing a seat per person.
A Young, Annoying Boy
This is precisely what has happened in this case. While three people could comfortably share the room on that bench, this young boy became the story’s main irritation because he had other thoughts than letting others have seats.
In the public transport environment, people are all familiar with the unique category of person informally called the “lay downer,” which is pretty explanatory in itself. In Isabel’s Twitter message, this young boy perfectly described this sort of passenger. By placing his legs on the bench as he leaned up against his mother, this young boy felt entitled to have the entire bench to himself. Certainly, this sort of passenger is irritating.
He ended up taking two seats due to his behavior, as he placed his feet on the seats. He seems to be unaware of the harm and discomfort he caused to everyone else on the subway when playing games on his mobile device. Is he really self-absorbed like that? We may not know if he wasn’t even aware of it, or if he knew it, but we just don’t care about anybody else.
Ignoring People’s Request
Everyone generally agrees to give up their seats on public transport to those who need them more than you do, particularly senior citizens, people with disabilities and pregnant women, as well as many others, because their lives are a little complicated compared to everyone else and they need at least a little support. However, if you fail to do this, in public transit, you will undoubtedly be frowned upon by anyone else.
Parenting Skills Gone Wrong
He ignored them and kept playing the game that he was playing on his mobile device, despite three people asking the kid if he could move his legs so they could sit on one of the two spaces he was occupying. The fact that the rude boy’s mother was there and did not do anything about the situation and appeared to be oblivious was what made this situation even more annoying.
The Mother Refused As Well
This child not only disregarded people’s demands, but his mother also declined to display any sort of notice or consideration. She was just as naive about the case, just like her son, which is probably why her son is like that. She was also changed by her phone, just like her son, and was eerily lost in whatever she was listening to. Those who stood in the subway noticed that the situation was alarming.
They Got Frustrated
And with each second passing, the surrounding people who were waiting in front of him slowly grew angrier, the kid felt the stress on the subway that he managed to build as it was all centered around him. The boy tried to crouch up a little and make a little room for others to sit down, to try to mitigate the problem, but this proved to be unsuccessful as it annoyed them even more.
His efforts to calm the people proved to be futile as his legs continued to occupy spaces on the bench. Even though the people on the subway didn’t do anything about it because they were already fed up with the boy and felt there was no point trying to bargain with him even more. That was before somebody went by and saved the day! Who was it, or what?
A mysterious man came over after a short time and stared at the disrespectful boy as he started playing on his cellphone. A lot of people posted comments on the tweet saying that this person may have been the British pop star wearing black, sunglasses, and having a hairstyle that is strangely similar to that of Elton John’s.
It Wasn’t Him
Oh, it was definitely not him! What will a British celebrity do on a subway like that? Even, if ever, it did not take any comic impact away from the storyline, it also made the story more amusing as it looked like Elton John was actually in the metro. What did the Elton John-lookalike do exactly that made this tweet into a viral feeling? Did he do something in this world because of it?
Elton John Look A Like
The guy, who looked like Elton John, was there, and like anyone in front of him, hoped the child would note that he was willing to sit down and free space for him to sit. Which is why this mysterious man became even more irritated with the boy’s arrogance and behavior when this disrespectful boy decided to disrespect another human once again.
Taking Matters Into His Own Hands
At that point, it became apparent that this man was irritated by the insensitivity of this young boy and his ignorance of the situation and the tension around him. He wanted to take it into his own hands and felt that if no one did, then he would do it. What did this guy do, exactly? Well, this man did something the child will never forget, which he could learn when he grew up.
Moment Of Bravery
The man did something as brave as sitting on the legs of a child without second thoughts. After all, before he did what he did, he politely asked the boy to move, but he disregarded this man as well as what he did to everyone else. The man suddenly lost his patience and took advantage of a bad situation. After all, the child didn’t own the seat, and he had every right to sit there.
A Truly Remarkable Moment
The very moment when the kid was surprised after the stranger sat on him, Isabel Kim was able to catch it, which is definitely a remarkable moment. The boy was speechless and only with his mouth wide open could he sit there. It was like this because this was one of the few times that this kid was not able to accept what had happened on the basis of these photos.
He Has The Rights
The man who sat on the boy had every right to sit in space, as opposed to the boy putting his legs there. This kid named Joe didn’t seem to have been taught any manners at home, which is why this mysterious guy wanted to teach him a lesson. It was too late when the mother remembered what had happened. There is no denying that the boy there learned his lesson.
Blocking Out The Seats
Ever since the man sat on the kid’s legs, the woman couldn’t even pay much attention to anything that had happened. The mother discovered that they had missed their stop by the time the man was able to make himself more secure, and immediately tried to blame her son for her error, which is certainly wrong as she should be the one who should pay attention to the stops, not her son.
Definitely A Crazy Moment
By using music and YouTube to block anything in the world around her, she has no one else to blame for the occasion but herself! On her tablet, which she also shared on Twitter, Isabel was able to capture the aftermath of the insane moment.
The Mother Made A Scene
When a boy’s mother screened because of the situation, they decided to get off the metro as soon as possible. The situation was very unpleasant. Not only did the man teach this boy a precious lesson on the mark of public transport, but the mom screamed at him before everyone at that time. As soon as Isabel stopped recording, his mother and son left the metro. That’s not anything, though.
He Cursed At The Man
The kid went to the man immediately following the end of the video to tell him something. However, after being taught the correct etiquette, it wasn’t the kind of words you would expect. He instead cussed the foreigner before he left, who sat on his legs. This story was unpredictable because it had many times that asked if it was happening. In this case, what will you do?
It’s just natural to say that Joe is remembered forever in subway folklore alongside the Elton John lookalike. However, while many are intrigued by the incident, there are still people who have not agreed with what the man has done. Indeed, they had plenty to say and didn’t hold back on this incident. What did the incident say these people?
Although many on social media found the situation amusing and were glad to know that a man had chosen to bring justice, people also noted that the man did not actually do what the kid was doing. Who was in the right, no matter who? The guy did the right thing? Do the right thing? Or how much was it? Let’s read what others said.
Some would also wonder whether it was legal or not and view the incident as a “crime,” but this was the viewpoint of the minority, the vast percentage seemed to support the stranger’s conduct. If this story is excellent to you, wait until you read the next story where a dad also gives a lesson to a group of foreigners.
