Today, on my way to school, I was shouted at by an obnoxious businessman for sitting down on the train when a "full fare paying passenger" was standing. I would normally have given him the seat straight away, except I have a broken leg. I showed him my leg and crutches. He still made me get up. FML

OP should have done what Rosa Parks did.

No, obviously I meant not moving even if the man complains. It is not like nowadays you could get thrown off the bus if you sit down even if a stranger tells you to move.

The obvious response is to ignore the shit out of that lady.

False. OP should've hit the man with his crutches.

my question is: where the hell is everyone else on this train? if I was there I would have given up my seat so OP would be able to stay seated. I would also tell him he is acting like a 16 year old spoiled princess and should grow up because only adults are hard working business men, not little high school girls.

He made you get up ? Or did you just not "stand your ground "

OP why did you get up for him?? You need stand up for yourself bro, gees...

I agree. I'd have given him the full fare of my crutch up his ass

Sometimes you just have to ignore people…

It's a bit hard to ignore an asshole businessman shouting at you on public transport.

He should have just stood up for himself...

You mean he should have sat down for himself.

You either have a small eyeball or there is an eye inbetween a baby's lips

I wouldn't have gotten up

...and stuck his crutch up the "businessman's" ass.

The Llama has spoken!

Businessman =/= gentleman

He made you? You should of stayed seated. I know what NSW transport is like, don't give in to the bully if you are injured.

Would it be classified as harassment?

You're so selfish OP! Being a cripple is no excuse to make a man who works hard for his money stand up. What if his legs get tired? He works hard for his money, so you better treat him right.

The business man is being rude and selfish and the man working isn't helping him. If he has tired legs he should deal with it the guy can only stand on one leg the other has two useful ones let him stand

^fail idiot. He/she was being sarcastic. -.-

Holy shit, I wasn't going to complain about getting thumbed down, but is that seriously why? Do people actually think I was being serious? Jesus, where has everyone's sense humor gone? I would've thought the song reference would've at least given you a clue that I was joking. Oh, sometimes...

mitm It should be a general common sense rule to almost never take your comment serious lol.

Oh sometimes.... I get a good feeling, yeeaaa.

The businessman could have gotten other passengers who are able to stand rather than OP you know, try to think in the perspective of someone who is injured...

What a prissy twat. He can stand. Unless he's not human... Pfft, he's a business man, of course he's not human.

People are just assholes.

Yeah I wouldn't have gotten up. I would've smacked him in the knees with my crutches and then got up saying "now you have a reason to have the seat" he's a low life for making you move OP, sorry you had to deal with that :( hope your leg heals soon!

Throw a couple coins at him and tell him you are now a full fare paying customer. If he still argues, break his leg with your crutches.

Well that escalated quickly.

16- hmm... Two men in bikinis mud fighting. With broken legs.... this should be interesting. Lol.
