Today, I got kicked off the train because I refused to stand for an old lady who wanted to sit down. There was an empty seat right next to me. FML
I agree, your life sucks 33 812
You deserved it 7 274

Godsfavourite tells us more.

The train had those seats that run parallel with the walls of the train, not the window and aisle seats. And I tell you know that the lady was just one of those people that looks down their nose at most youth. I was in no way disrespectful to her and when I pointed out the seat next to me and she went and told the security guards that I refused to stand up for her. It's messed up, man. OP

That's right, fight for your damn chair. We can't let the elderly win at everything.

Rosa Parks?

Show it anyway

Uuuh I'm trying to decide if OP is real stubborn or real stupid.

It's a pride thing, OP is prideful like most people.

when I read this FML I thought of Rosa Parks. lol :D

or really lazy? or fat?

#1 and #43. Read that a few times, OP. This is not about you or about the empty seat. It's about respect and the basic principles of social behaviour. And you expected the old lady to squeeze in between and crawl over you to get to the empty seat? You twat...

maybe the other seat was as easily accesible as the one the old lady wanted to sit in. Could have been the woman had a thing where she has to sit in a specific place and Op had chosen that spot. I doubt OP woouldnt have slid into the next seat out of pride.

@1: Because then he wouldn't have an FML about being a callous douche bag.

Or maybe she just wanted a pre warmed seat? You know those old lady's and their weird fetishes for warmth.

1 - Because she wasn't necessarily sitting on the end seat. My guess is she was sitting at the window seat and it's easier for an elder to get out of an aisle seat than a window seat.

agreed with number 1... OP you are a dumb ass, go jump off a building

That's right, fight for your damn chair. We can't let the elderly win at everything.

First they take daytime tv and now seats on a train!!! What's next senior discounts???

STupid old hose bag, couldn't she just have sat down. Why should someone else give away their seat when there're seats available? I'm on OP's side here

Yeah, be a modern day rosa parks!

Hell yeah. If the bitch was well enough to get on the damn train, she's well enough to stand up.

122: She didn't have to stand anyway, 'cause there was an empty seat.

Being stubborn gets you nowhere.

Yes it does, it gets you kicked out if the train

And it totally can, being stubborn isn't always a bad thing you know...

Well, what I meant was, there is no point being so stubborn. She could have just let her sit, and move to the other empty seat beside.

Respect your elders. Lesson learned.

I agree with the statement "respect your elders", but you're retarded buddy The lady could have taken the seat beside the OP

Rosa Parks?

"but this one is closer to the front."

More like "seats in the front are for whites. Seat in the back are for N******"

Rosa parks kinda

Wow, that sucks OP :/

just move to the empty seat and apologize profusely to the lady about how your so sorry and that your gonna make it up by paying for her funeral.

Why do people say OP is the stubborn one? The old bitch is obviously the stubborn one so stfu

Lol I agree with OP to an extent, I say the for the first bit it's ok but by the time that people start talking and the bus driver is asking you to get off..you should move and 7 I zoomed in because of angel beats

Yes, I did zoom in. :p

Maybe she had tunnel vision and could only see your chair and not the open one o.O

Why should an old lady have to be forced to be packed like a sardine next to your smelly ass?

Even if OP moved to the next seat she'd still be packed in like a sardine. Instead the seat will be warm.

i don't understand why people think that the seat next to the OP was the difficult one to get to. it's obviously a FML because it wasn't and the old lady was th stubborn one.

Either her butt is too big, yours was, she's a senior psychopath, or you are in a carriage full of blind self righteous morons

Last one.

OP could be really fat and so spilling onto the seat next to them.

yea well now you like an asshole. should've just moved. ydi.

What? -.-

Lemme turn on the universal translator..... Yes, well now you look like an uncharitable person. You should've just moved to the empty seat. You deserve it.

Red I actually had to check your profile there to make sure it was a Trek reference and not a coincidence :P
