I mean, I am a stander, but that is just downright inconsiderate.

Definitely. I'm surprised no one said anything to him.

The backpack definitely makes it even more enraging. Were it just random homeless guy, it would be par for the course.

WTF is wrong with people

I am amazed that nobody said anything to him. Koreans generally keep to themselves (not very confrontational), but there is no way a middle aged Korean man or woman is letting that fly.

 

Also, later vengeance may follow:

 

This woman let her dog shit on the subway and didn't clean it up. Someone gave her a paper towel, and she used it to wipe her dogs ass. She also refused to clean it up after several passengers requested that she do so. As soon as she left, a couple of passengers began to clean it up. Someone snapped a picture and posted it online. After a few days she was recognized and people began harassing her, her family, and her workplace (or university, I forget). Basically ruined her life for a year.

+1. Glad this story had a happy ending.

Perhaps, but it went way too far. Giving her crap about it during class, fine. But people (strangers) were making death threats and harassing her parents (and while it's possibly their fault, there are plenty of shitty children out there with good parents).

Ok, that is indeed taking it way too far.

Meh, I dunno. Sometimes you gotta send a message. If the consequences in the US were more severe, I am sure people would adhere to the rules and be more considerate. Fear is a strong motivator.

People should have sent one strong message and took a shit on her doorstep.

Well, her address is public knowledge. I'll put you up for a few days. You could be the man to bring the message home (so to speak).

 

(Actually, the last time her address was public knowledge was a few years ago. Both she and her parents have had to move. I would not be surprised to find out that she's had extensive plastic surgery since then....though that's only because half the people--not just women--in this country are looking for an excuse to slice open their faces).

I encountered a blind woman on the subway this morning. Or allegedly blind. She was wearing headphones and scrolling through iTunes. Something about that combination makes me want to call bullshit.
