Published on 10/20/2020

Each generation claims that they are good manners, listening to so-called “better music” and wearing more casual clothes, irrespective of the generation, and believe that today they are better than the entitled, privileged children in every way. All right, what do you think? That’s probably the case. We are both mindful that there are a few unspoken laws that both must obey when they are on the subway. However, some children might be a little rude and outright disrespectful. This is why this man took it upon himself after refusing to obey the said rules to teach this kid a lesson.

Someone Should Teach Him A Lesson

It can be a little uncomfortable to be on the subway as a commuter. Looking for a seat is also quite difficult, but if you manage to find a seat for yourself, you are only permitted to take one seat at a time. However, this young man felt he was entitled to more than three subway seats, stopping anyone from taking a seat. This man, however, didn’t have any of that.

Insensitive Passengers

Not all of us are privileged to have our own car to drive every day on our way to work and back home. This is why public transport is amazing because it makes everything a little easier for most of us who do not have our car. Nonetheless, this also means that we will have to face individuals who feel no need to pay any respect to everyone else.

An Eye For An Eye

For some strange reason, public transport has the ability to bring out the absolute worst in everyone, and by absolute worst, we mean THE ABSOLUTE WORST characteristic of people. Trains and buses are now a dog-eat-dog world, and this article is proof of the fact that many of the passengers around them are far too cruel and do not care about anyone else. Have you encountered people like this during your daily commutes?

Rudeness 101

There are many situations when you encounter someone or something on the train or bus that you believe is offensive. After all, there are many people around each other in an enclosed space, which is why there would always be moments when you’d travel and meet other people behaving in a way that they don’t seem to know they’re offending the other people around them.

Disrespectful

For example, there will be occasions when a passenger will not forfeit their seats, while others will put their stuff on the bench next to theirs, ultimately stopping any passengers from sitting there. There will also be occasions when people play songs out loud and make a loud phone call that will last longer than 30 minutes. There are only a couple of the most irritating encounters you can find on public transport.

Selfish Passengers

As mentioned earlier, selfish passengers think that they have the right to sit next to their own seats, 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.

Stay Peaceful

Different individuals will deal with situations like this in various ways. By trying to make a deal in the most peaceful manner possible, some would approach it. Simultaneously, 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, of course, absolutely no idea what the rude passenger might be doing. If that rude passenger would suddenly stand up and attempt to pick a fight with you, there is no way to tell. Do you think it’s worth it to be involved in a violent fight for the sake of being able to sit down on public transport? Well, the victim has done something in this story that you wouldn’t believe.

A Viral Tweet Post

A Twitter post by the user named @da_drought_3 captured everything that happened in this story. Her Twitter post immediately became a viral sensation as it had amassed over 137,000 likes, 47,000 retweets, and thousands of comments as of May 2019.

There were many comments in the comment section of the Twitter post that seemed to praise the individual so positively in the story. Some of these comments include, “As a new yorker, this GIVES ME LIFE,” “My faith in humanity has been restored,” and “It’s the only way children will learn!” But what was it about the tweet that many people agreed with? Really, is it the right thing?

Capturing Unforgettable Moments

Isabel Kim was the name of a young woman who was able to capture the incredible moment on Twitter on Twitter. She was known as @da drought 3 on social media and is quite active on Twitter as she is widely acknowledged because of her posts. Most of her posts include stuff she likes and the various moments she has captured and decided to share with her massive virtual audience.

Just An Average Day

The day began to be mundane for her, but she noticed something strange going on in front of her own eyes when she took the subway on her way to work. Leading her to take photos of what she saw for her to share on Twitter with her fans

He Has Another Plan

We first have to put things in perspective to understand what was going on in the situation to fully understand what had happened in Isabel’s tweet. Those familiar with the subway know that there are trains that are not separately sectioned. This means that these subway trains could have long benches that can accommodate more than one passenger instead of having a seat per person.

A Young, Annoying Boy

In this case, this is exactly what has happened. While three individuals could easily share the room on that bench, this young boy became the biggest irritation of the story when he had other ideas than letting others have seats in the subway.

A Young, Annoying Boy

Strange Passenger

People are all familiar with the unique category of individual informally called the “lay downer” in the public transportation environment, which is pretty much self-explanatory. This young boy perfectly described this type of traveler in Isabel’s Twitter post. This young boy felt entitled to have the entire bench to himself by placing his legs on the bench while leaning up against his mother. This type of passenger is certainly irritating.

Too Self-Absorbed

Due to his actions, he took two seats when he placed his foot on the table. While playing games on his mobile device, he seems unaware of the damage and discomfort he caused everyone else on the subway. Is he really self-absorbed like that? We may not know if he wasn’t really aware of it or if he knew it, but we just don’t care about everybody else.

Ignoring People’s Request

In general, everyone agrees to give up their public transport seats to others who need them more than you do, especially senior citizens, people with disabilities and pregnant women, as well as many others, because compared to everyone else, their lives are a little challenging. They need at least a little support. If you fail to do this, though, in public transit, everyone else will undoubtedly be frowning at you.v

Parenting Skills Gone Wrong

Despite three people asking the kid to move his legs to sit on one of the two spaces he was occupying, he dismissed them and continued playing the game he was playing on his mobile device. What made this situation even more irritating was that the rude boy’s mother was there yet did not do anything about the situation and kept being oblivious.

The Mother Refused As Well

Not only did this boy disregard the demands of everybody, but his mother still declined to show any kind of notice or consideration. Like her son, she was almost as naive about the case, which is probably why her son is like that. Like her son, she had changed her phone, too, and was eerily lost in whatever she was listening to. Those who stayed on the metro felt that the situation was alarming.

And with each passing second, the people around him who were waiting in front of him slowly became angrier, and the kid felt the frustration on the subway he was able to build when it was all centered around him. To try to mitigate the problem, the boy tried to crouch up a bit and make a little room for others to sit down, but this proved to be ineffective as it annoyed them even more.

Unsung Hero

As his legs still occupied spaces on the bench, his attempts to ease up the people proved pointless. Although the people on the subway didn’t do much about it, they were already fed up with the boy and thought there was no use negotiating with him anymore. That was until somebody went by and saved the day! Who was it, or what?

Mysterious Man

A mystery man came over and stared at the disrespectful boy after a short time as he began playing with his cellphone. Many people have posted comments on the tweet saying that this guy may have been the British pop star wearing black sunglasses, and a hairstyle oddly identical to Elton John’s.

It Wasn’t Him

Well, it wasn’t him, obviously! What would that British superstar do on a subway like that? Still, the plot did not take away any comedic effect. It even made the story more hilarious, if ever, as it looked like Elton John in the subway actually was. What exactly did the Elton John-lookalike do that made it a viral sensation for this tweet? Did he do something out of this world?

Elton John Look A Like

The man who looked a bit like Elton John was standing there, and he was hoping that the kid would notice that he wanted to sit down and free up space to allow him to have a seat, just like everyone else before him. This is why this mysterious man became even more annoyed with the boy’s arrogance and actions when this rude boy decided to ignore another person once more.

Taking Matters Into His Own Hands

It was clear that the insensitivity of this young child, as well as his misunderstanding of the situation and the tension surrounding him, insulted this man. This is where he wanted to take it into his own hands, telling himself he would do it if no one did it. What was this man doing exactly? Well, this guy did something the kid would never forget, a lesson that would stick with him until he got older.

Moment Of Bravery

The guy did something as brazen as sitting, without any second thoughts, on the kid’s legs. After all, before he did what he did, he respectfully asked the boy to move, but just as the boy did to everybody else, he refused this man’s request. The man unexpectedly lost all of his patience and made the most of a terrible situation. After all, the seat was not held by the boy, and he had all the rights to sit there.

A Truly Remarkable Moment

The very moment when the kid was shocked after the stranger sat on him, Isabel Kim was able to capture it, which is certainly a remarkable moment. The kid was speechless, and with his mouth wide open, he could do nothing but sit there. It was like this is one of the rare occasions when, based on these images, this kid didn’t get his way and had a hard time accepting what happened.

He Has The Rights

As opposed to the boy who put his legs there, the man who was sitting on the boy had every right to sit in that space. It seemed that this kid named Joe wasn’t taught any etiquette at home, which is why this mystery man wanted to teach him a lesson. Before mother noticed what had happened, it was too late. There’s no denying the boy learned his lesson there.

Blocking Out The Seats

Even after the guy had sat on the legs of the child, the lady couldn’t pay much attention to anything that had happened. The mother found that by the time the man was able to make himself more comfortable, they had missed their stop, and immediately decided to blame her son for her fault, which is certainly false, as she should be the one to pay attention to the stops, not her son.

By blocking all the music and YouTube around her in the world, she has no one else to blame on that occasion rather than herself! On her phone, which she also posted on Twitter, Isabel was able to record the aftermath of the crazy moment.

The Mother Made A Scene

As the boy’s mother created a scene because of the situation, the whole thing became very awkward, which is why they wanted to get off the subway as quickly as they could. Not only did the guy give this kid an important lesson on public transit etiquette, but the woman swore at him in front of everyone who was present at the time. The mother and son left the subway as soon as Isabel finished filming. But it’s not all that.

He Cursed At The Man

The kid went to the man right after the video ended to say something to him. It was not, however, the type of phrase you would expect after a lesson on proper etiquette was taught. Instead, he cussed the stranger who had been sitting on his legs before leaving. This tale became unpredictable because there were various instances that made you question whether it really happened. In this situation, what would you do?

It’s only normal to say that Joe will forever be remembered in subway folklore alongside the Elton John lookalike. Nevertheless, while there are many individuals who were intrigued by this event, there are also those who did not agree with what the man did. They had a lot to say about the incident, actually, and they didn’t hold back at all. What were those people saying about that incident?

While many people on social media considered the situation to be amusing and were happy to see that there was a man who decided to bring justice where it was needed, there were people who said that it was not at all right what the man did to the child. Who was in the right anyway, really? Has the guy done what is right? Or was it too much? Let’s read what other individuals have said.

Some would even question whether or not that was legally acceptable, classifying the incident as a form of “assault.” Although this was the opinion of the minority, the stranger’s action seemed to be favored by a large percentage.

He’s Just A Kid

As it has been growing exponentially all over the world, bullying must be addressed. Bullying most of the time comes from the personal problems of the perpetrator. Bullying is never okay, no matter the reason, and there is no reason for anyone to bully others. Nonetheless, individuals still refuse to recognize this and still bully others. Have a look at this father who refuses to allow his child any more torment to endure.

He’s Just A Kid

He Was Bullied

Joey is a child who enjoys playing ball in the park and hanging out. Sadly, he was a victim of bullying as well, as no matter where he goes or whatever time, he still gets bullied. This day, a group of teenagers turned up at the park where he regularly played. Knowing that a lot of people don’t know how to cope with abuse is heart-wrenching, but there was something that had to be done.

He Was Bullied

A Happy Day Turned Into Nightmare

The bullying of Joey Mason began when he was in fourth grade, but it was only moderate at the time. Because of this, he enjoyed playing with his dog and cat. He lived in Toronto , Canada, in a suburban neighborhood and his location was next to a lovely park. Following practice, he always goes to the park to play ball. Until sometime after graduation, his safe place unexpectedly became his utter nightmare. The older boys sure did no good at all.

A Happy Day Turned Into Nightmare

I Am A Victim of Bullying

Joey Mason thought that the perfect way to disclose how he feels about being a victim of bullying is to share it on social media. “My name is Joey and I’m 10 years old. I am a victim of bullying. It hurts me very much. Please, stop bullying.”  Joey said. A lot of people were able to read his post, but no notice was given to the kid who was calling for help. His father did not know what was happening in his son’s life.

I Am A Victim of Bullying

He Felt Uneasy And Alarmed

Parents want the absolute best for their children. It’s only normal for a parent to worry when their child doesn’t feel well. For Joey ‘s father, the same can be said, as he was alarmed when he noticed his son was not happy every day. He took the initiative to find out what was going on in his son’s life, but he gave no response when he spoke to Joey.

He Felt Uneasy And Alarmed

Emotionally Despair

The father began to note every change his son made when he moved schools with each passing day. He was aware that his son, full of excitement, had turned into an emotional mess since he had changed schools. Still, the specific reason why his son was like that? He was not sure. He figured it might have been the new school environment, or maybe the teachers, or the other students.

Emotionally Despair

Something’s Not Right

Once he comes home from school, Joey will always weep, which is clearly an indication that something is wrong. Unfortunately, the father did not have sufficient evidence that his son was being intimidated. He wanted to explore what was really happening. He knew that, regardless of how he was going to do it, something needed to be done so that his son would actually be happy and not remain unhappy.

Something’s Not Right

He Came Up With The Best Plan

He was worried about his son so much and he couldn’t stand to see him sad every day. Seeing his son hurt also hurt him. He decided he was going to do something about it, of course, and although he had no idea what he was going to do, he needed to make and follow an action plan. It took a little time for him, but the plan was all set.

He Came Up With The Best Plan

What Was The Cause Of Bullying?

The father spent a great deal of time thinking about how he would put his idea into effect. It didn’t take long for him to discover that his son’s classmates were harassing his son. He also couldn’t help but wonder if a part of it was also his son’s teacher. He was confident that their families and home life were doing very well, which is why he was 100 percent sure the trouble wasn’t coming from the home.

What Was The Cause Of Bullying?

His World Turned Upside Down

It was hard to believe that the place his son loved the most was no longer safe for him, all because of people who wanted to choose him for their own entertainment. When Joey had already begun to play with his ball, the teenage bullies came over to him. The bullies did not know, however, that this time someone was watching them.

He’s The Target

It was unclear whatever they were planning to do, except that they were targeting Joey Mason. The bullying had been going on for weeks, and the bullies would follow him no matter where Joey went and continue to mess with him. Fortunately, Joey was a strong and courageous young man and chose to ignore the name-calling. The bullies were annoyed by this and decided to up their game of bullying.

He’s The Target

Joey Was In Trouble

Joey was a timid kid who had never troubled anyone, probably why the teenage bullies targeted him because they thought he would not fight back. When it seemed like they were playing, it seemed like everything was perfect for those in the area. Unbeknownst to them, as the uproar began to attract everyone’s attention in the park, Joey would be in a lot of trouble.

Joey Was In Trouble

Someone’s Watching

Joey had a hard time at school defending himself because he was frightened and not brave enough, and other students who were aware of the bullying were also afraid to speak out on Joey’s behalf in fear that they might be bullied next. The educators also thought that these children were playing around, which is not the case. Joey was actually being tormented at school for their amusement by a group of people older than him.

Someone’s Watching

It Escalated Quickly

The bullies felt it was funny to take the ball from Joey without any chance of him retrieving it. Things started to escalate, and still, no one came to the rescue of the young boy. Because of all that was going on, it would only take a matter of time for the severity of the crisis to intensify to the point that no one would predict. No one was aware of what was actually happening.

It Escalated Quickly

It’s Not Getting Any Good

One of the bullies shouted, “Hey kid, a nice ball you got there. Can I see it?” And before the poor boy even knew it, the teenager had already kicked the ball away from him. In a desperate attempt to get his ball back, he kept on yelling, “It’s mine!” But sadly, the bullies did not care about what he felt and only wanted to be entertained regardless if they are harming someone.

It’s Not Getting Any Good
