I took my ds on the train today and once again i have been left wondering what the future of this country will hold.
I got on the train to a young man (i later heard he was 16 yo) playing quite loud music on his phone. I waited a bit (cause i thought he would stop once other passengers got on). Nope. He continued to play his loud music. I thought "No way, this is not ok" and said 'if you wanted to play loud music your meant to have headphones'. To which he replied 'maybe you should go find somewhere else to sit' . I said 'how about you having some respect for the other passengers' and he said 'If you have had the kind of day ive had maybe you would shut up. i dont wana talk to you so shoosh'
I cant believe he spoke to me that way!!!
Then, the train guard got on and asked to see his ticket. He didnt have one (no big suprise there). The train guard wrote him a ticket and handed it to the kid and he said 'nah, get away i dont want it'. The train guard said 'take it'. The kid took it and ripped it up in front of everyone (including the guard) and threw it on the floor of the train.
I am left wondering why. This young adult clearly has zero respect for anyone and i really do worry about the future of this country.
Please please please teach your children COMMON COURTESY AND RESPECT!!!
OK, vent over
