A Woman Requested a Couple Vacate the Train Seats She Booked for Her Children, but After They Verbally Abused Her She Reported Them and Had Them Fired from Their Jobs

A woman boarded a busy train one day with her young children, aged 1 and 3. The train was crowded which initially suggested the journey wouldn’t be too comfortable, but the woman could never have anticipated how uncomfortable the journey could be due to an upcoming altercation.

The mother had diligently booked three assigned seats, assuring she and her children had a designated spot to sit. She boarded the train with the expectation of a peaceful journey, but upon entering the busy carriage, she discovered a heavily crowded train with seemingly no free seats.

The woman was grateful that she reserved her seats in advance, so she began searching through the carriages for her designated spots. However, upon eventually finding them, she discovered that her seats were occupied by a couple in business attire.

Attempting to resolve the situation amicably, the mother politely asked the couple if they might be in the wrong seats. Unfortunately, her inquiry was met with silence.

The woman was not willing to back down. “I raised my voice slightly and asked them to check they were in the right seats as I had booked them”, she explained. “I was told to ‘Shut up and go back to my deadbeat baby daddy’. I couldn’t believe it!”

Thankfully, the woman explained that the situation did not deteriorate further due to the intervention of another passenger: “They alerted a train guard who removed the couple from the carriage after a lot of nasty insults and threats towards myself and my children. I was very shaken up.”

Thankfully, the rest of the train journey was pleasant. Many passengers offered her support, whilst others focused on cheering up her children by making them laugh. Thankfully, the offending couple were long gone.

Interestingly, once the woman and her children had calmed down, one passenger approached her, offering her a video recording of the altercation. Furthermore, they also provided the names and company information displayed on the unruly couple’s lanyards. 

Legal Action

The passenger expressed to the woman that this evidence would be sufficient to take legal action against the horrible couple. Whilst she was apprehensive, multiple passengers expressed their willingness to serve as witnesses for any necessary follow-up.

To Report or Not to Report?

However, the mother was unsure as to whether reporting the incident was the best action to take, knowing that the couple could have their lives ruined if the report was successful. She discussed the situation with her husband, who firmly believed that she should report the incident and that any unfortunate consequences were simply karma. 

A Decision Was Made

With support from her husband, the woman made the decision to file the report. To her shock, it was quickly acted upon by the offending couple’s employer. “They responded saying that I was one of a number of people emailing about this incident and that their employment would be terminated immediately in line with company policy”, the woman recounted.

An Online Verdict

Despite being happy that justice had been served, the woman couldn’t help but feel guilty for getting the horrible couple fired. She recounted her experience online, asking social media whether they felt her guilt was justified. “You didn’t get them fired – they did”, one commenter defended. “Please recognize that you are not responsible for this incident or the consequences.”

A Unanimous Response

It was clear from the comment section that not a single reader felt that the woman’s guilt was justified. “Don’t feel bad – do nasty things, get nasty consequences”, defended another reader. “They not only insulted but actually threatened you and your children! Their behavior is far beyond the bounds of intolerable, and the outcome is nobody’s fault but their own.”

Helping the Company

One commenter pointed out that the woman had done the offending couple’s company a huge favor. “They were wearing identifying information about their company that was clearly visible to the public, essentially being ‘ambassadors’ for the company”, they pointed out. “Their behavior affects the way that company is perceived – you did everyone a favor by reporting it.”
