You often hear of critics who claim that kids these days are unruly. Sometimes, these claims are unfair and based on sentiments or generalizations. However, other times, these claims are true and kids are being absolutely ill-mannered.
A good example of this is the story of a young boy who was riding on the New York City subway recently.
According to reports and photos, the boy in question was engrossed in his phone. He was so engrossed that he spread his legs over three seats to get more comfortable.
Ordinarily, this isn’t a big deal if we’re talking about a scanty train with lots of empty seats. In this case, however, the boy in question refused to move for three passengers. This was confirmed by a fellow commuter who witnessed everything.
The boy was taught a vital lesson when a gentleman came over and sat on him. Although this seemed like a harsh response, it was a way to teach our little guy a crucial life lesson.
The eyewitness, Isabel (@da_drought_3) tweeted,
“This lil asshole wouldn’t move his legs for 3 adults, so this guy comes and just sits on his legs #mykidcouldnever.”
One thing that stood out for those that witnessed the incident was the facial expression of the young man when this happened. Although the adult that was with him made subtle attempts to intervene, it really did not make any difference.
The gentleman that sat on his leg simply carries on as if nothing had happened. It was a simple act that will teach the kid a vital lesson going forward.
It did not take long for Isabel’s tweet to get people’s attention and as you would expect, a lot of people hailed the gentleman's actions.
