Brekky Wrap: Furious Commuter Posts Photo Of 'W***er' Cyclist, Her Rant Backfires
All the news you need to know this Monday.
A commuter who shared a photo of a cyclist taking up four seats on a packed train has been slammed for not asking him to move. The woman took to Reddit to share her frustration after spotting the cyclist with their feet up on the seats. "Pretty full. It was just after rush hour. The wa***erism is twofold," she posted. "Regardless of whether it is busy or not, get your filthy shoes off of the seats, it's disrespectful to your fellow passengers... If you have too much stuff, use the overhead storage. That's what it's there for. The seats are for arses," she continued. While she received some support, many users disagreed. "I don't understand why people have to get so upset about something that doesn't affect them," one said. "Why are you posting this? If the train is full and you politely asked him to move I would bet money that they would move," said another. It isn't clear whether she did ask the cyclist to move.
