I saw red and smacked his band away and told him if laid a hand on my baby I would make sure he had no hands left to do sh!t with after. He just said whatever laughted and they all moved to the next carrage

    Vent away! What a disgusting little sh!thead.

    I was on the train the other day (argh, never again, I'd rather deal with peak hour traffic) and a bunch of high school kids were being really loud, swearing and carrying on. An older lady was getting frustrated (and fair enough!) and made a bit of a "tut tut" and rolled her eyes at them. One of the boys just looked at her and said "if you don't like it you can F$#K off". I couldn't believe it! A guy stepped in and told them they were out of line and the kids just laughed and moved to a different part of the train.

    I'm also amazed at the amount of kids in their school uniforms on their cheap tickets who refuse to stand for any adult, not even pregnant women, frail/elderly people, mums with babies etc. It's so rude.

    I agree with Shelle. I don't see today's teenagers as being any more or less than what they were 25 years ago when I was teenager. We know some wonderful teenagers who babysit our kids and have fantastic attitudes.

    We're you polite to him op? Perhaps your tone didn't sit well with him. I would have said "excuse me, would you mind turning the music down" rather than "if you want to listen to loud music use headphones". His reaction may have been different.

    I think the keywords in this paragraph are 'up here'.
    This is in WA, so I'm talking about how it works here in WA. The (day) guards do not have the powers, only the public officers (who work on the trains in the evenings/nights and on weekends) have the powers. The guards here only have the right to infringe people for not having a ticket and that's where their powers end. They can't ask people to leave the train.

    Really? When I was in school we caught trains everywhere (including to/from school with work folk) and it was always kids standing for adults.

    I'm not saying all kids now are bad haha far from it. But I have noticed a lot of little jerks on trains, but at the same time, I see a lot of rude adults too.

    Some kids stand, some don't. Some are too small to stand safely on public transport so I get why they don't. Doesn't bother me TBH.

    If that was the case wouldn't he have been polite to the guard?

    By the sounds of it he was having a bad day and would have reacted the same way no matter how or what was said. Seems a bit like he was just waiting for somebody to say something so a fight could be picked...

    But I guess who knows what was going through his head...he still didnt have to do or say what he did regardless and I really dont think what the op said was remotely rude but maybe thats just me. Seems like this kid is lacking in common courtesy.
