Do you think this is rude? Train passenger shames stranger for ‘unacceptable’ behaviour
It’s pretty difficult to get comfortable when you’re on a train for a few hours.
But there’s certain etiquette you stick to out of common sense and respect for other people’s personal space.
One train passenger wasn’t best pleased when he returned to his seat from the toilet and found that the stranger opposite him had got a little too cosy.
He had taken off his shoes and put his feet up on the chair. We only hope they were clean socks.
But to make matters worse, he was playing footsie with a phone charger – and you’ve guessed it, it wasn’t his own.
The disgusted passenger told Mirror Online: “He had them up there for about half an hour. I was sat on the opposite side of a four-seater train seat, went to the toilet and returned to find his feet up on my side caressing my phone charging cable.
“I didn’t know whether to wake him or unplug it and run.”
He then posted the photo to social media with the caption: “Sorry train fella but this is unacceptable” and quickly received sympathy from friends who said it was ‘rude’.
One wrote: “I know it’s a long journey but that is rather cheeky! Hope they’re not too smelly.”
Another commented: “You’ve got to be f***ing kidding me.”
Shaming fellow passengers for their revolting habits is becoming quite the trend on social media – but it’s usually reserved for plane travel.
A selection of photos from PassengerShaming.com were posted to Imgur and have since gone viral. Below are 10 of the worst, but if you’ve seen anything more gross,tell us about it via the form at the bottom of this article.
1. This foot
We don’t even know what to say about this.
2. The person who put their jacket over someone else’s TV
And don’t get us started on the feet being up on the tray table.
3. This comfortable seating position
Seriously, how have they managed this?
4. These toenails
Lovely to look at while you’re eating your peanuts.
5. The man who didn’t have enough room for all his tech
Because everyone needs two laptops and airlines are inconsiderate for not providing the necessary space.
6. This guy making himself comfortable
Hey, if you’ve got a whole row to yourself… why not?
7. This absolute mess
Where does the plane end and the mess begin?
8. This rejection of the rulebook
9. This shorts fan
Who doesn’t love seeing someone else’s bare feet?
