Of course, this is a massive generalization. But after this incident, posted by Twitter user Isabel, you can’t help but feel a little upset by the lack of parenting. A bratty kid was sprawled out over two or three seats on the subway, zombified in front of his phone (naturally) while his guardian sat by, also away in her own world.
Most people faced with this situation would probably give a disapproving look, feel a bit annoyed by the injustice of it all and continue to stand, while the boy selfishly luxuriated on his own personal couch. Not this hero, however. A young Elton John look-a-like, tired of still standing, showed up and was having none of it. “This lil ass— wouldn’t move his legs for 3 adults, so this guy comes and just SITS on his legs #mykidcouldnever,” Isabel tweeted along with a few pics and a short video of the incident.
The hero got plenty of praise on Twitter, after the post was shared over 47k times. People taking up more than their fair space on public transport really seems to strike a nerve with the internet, and this guy is this latest to be lauded for his service to the rest of us.
