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

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.

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.

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

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...

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...

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!
