A young woman moved Redditors to outrage when she related a run-in she had with a strange man on the train. Get ready to be creeped out by her full story!
A Train Ride to Weirdness
Rachel is a single 30-year-old woman who had a harrowing experience on a recent train ride alone.
She Was Alone on the Train
Rachel was riding alone in a 4-person compartment on the day in question. There were two seats on one side and two on the other.
She Made Herself Comfortable
She spread her things out because the train was pretty empty, and she was sitting alone and wanted to stay that way. She put her bag on the seat next to her, then put her feet up on the seat across from her.
Move Your Bag, Lady
Before the train started, a middle-aged man boarded and headed straight to Rachel’s compartment. He stood in front of her and told her bluntly to move her bag.
He Was Crystal Clear
Rachel was surprised by the demand and wanted to make sure she had heard the man correctly. So she asked him if he really wanted to sit next to her, and he said he did.
He Was in Her Space
So Rachel reluctantly moved her bag, and the stranger sat down next to her as promised. She might have felt creeped out at that point, but she was more annoyed that this man was cramping her space.
She Hit the Road
So, since there were hundreds of free seats on the train, Rachel picked up her belongings and found another empty 4-person compartment. She sat down, placed her bag next to her, and was about to prop her feet up again.
He Followed Her!
Before Rachel could relax, though, the same man showed up in front of her again. And he again demanded that she move her bag so that he could sit down.
She Already Gave Him What He Wanted
But Rachel wasn’t so quick to give in this time. She told the man that he had specifically asked for the first seat, so she saw no reason why he should be looking for a different seat now.
He Said She Was Entitled
Then Rachel asked the man why he wanted her seat, and he told her it wasn’t about the specific seat at all. He wanted her to move her stuff because she was acting entitled and apparently thought her bag deserved its own seat.
Buzz Off, Buddy
Fed up, Rachel told the guy that she had already moved once for him, and she wasn’t going to do it again. There were plenty of open seats, so he should go find one and leave her alone.
He Granted Her Wish
He swore at her and stormed off to another part of the train, which Rachel hoped would happen. When he sat down again, Rachel heard him talking to someone on the phone, griping again about all the entitled people around him.
Was She Wrong?
But as Rachel reflected on the situation, she started to wonder if she had really done something wrong that just didn’t occur to her.
She Needed More Input
And the stranger’s odd behavior didn’t sit all that well with Rachel, either. That’s when she took to Reddit to see what others thought. Most commenters were pretty creeped out by the man’s behavior and said that she might have been in danger.
You Never Know Who You’re Dealing With
Rachel doesn’t think the guy would hurt her, but some Redditors pointed out that you never really know what might trigger someone else.
For the most part, though, commenters think the guy on the train was a full-on jerk who had no right to hassle Rachel for nothing. Especially since the train was nearly empty.
