Passengers on board long or short haul journeys are a veritable mix of characters. For cabin crew, train staff and other employees, they are required to cater to every traveller, no matter what their mood or character. Yet this must sometimes prove testing – particularly when the person in question hasn’t got the best manners. This was a case for a train attendant in China, who felt the wrath of an angry male passenger when she was attempting to clean the walkway.
One passenger filmed the vile scenes unfold and posted them to Instagram account Passenger Shaming.
The clip has since gone viral, with 235,671 at the time of writing.
It was uploaded with the caption: “This (not on an airplane) passenger seems nice!
“He was asked to stop throwing melon seeds on the floor. This was his reaction.”
The video captures the drama unfold with the female assistant sweeping up a few seeds into a pan.
After seemingly warning the male, dressed in a short-sleeved shirt, about his conduct he seemed to take umbrage.
He proceeded to pour a whole load of seeds onto the spot she had just cleaned.
Taking things further, he proceeded to spread them across the whole of the carriage, getting up out of his seat to kick them forward the entirety of the aisle.
Passengers watched on in shock at his antics.
The attendant eventually gave up, and walked away with her cleaning equipment.
Fellow Instagram users were quick to comment underneath, with one bluntly putting: “Sick old man.”
Another added: “Whattt the HECK!” while a third mused: “Was hoping she was gonna pull out a bucket of water to throw on him from that cupboard at the end.”
One then surmised: “Damn, it’s too bad no one put him in his place and stood up for the woman.”
Meanwhile, in a completely separate viral video, a different male passenger sparked shock when he attempted to board a plane naked.
He was stopped by police before he could step foot on the plane.
