A mother was left furious after fellow train passengers did not offer up their seats for her 10-year-old boy.
Taking to TikTok, the angry mom blasted the ‘oblivious’ passengers’ for not having ‘human decency,’ slamming them for letting her son sit on the floor throughout their train journey.
In her viral video, the young boy can be seen sitting down in the aisle of the priority area while other commuters sat comfortably on their seats.
The fuming mother, whose name is Kelly, said: “All these people watching my baby sit on the floor in [the] priority seats area! Oblivious.”
In the clip, the mom can be seen showing the viewers how other commuters ignored her son.
Her post sparked a lengthy debate, with many saying that adults don’t have to give up a seat for a healthy child.
One person commented: “I’m heavily pregnant and I’d watch a child sit on the floor too. My kids move for an elderly person, it’s called respect.”
Another said: “To be honest, I’d be fuming if I got on a busy train after a long day at work and a small child was taking up a seat.”
A third said: “Quite right too. The adults should have the seats. Small kid is just fine where he is.”
Someone else said: “Why should anyone who has paid their fares to travel on the train, give up their seats for a 10 year old?? I wouldn’t. Now had the passenger being either an elderly person or a heavily pregnant woman, then yes, i would in that situation. Had it been the other way around, and she and her son had seats, would she have stood up to allow a young child to have her seat ? I think not.”
