Those of us who travel regularly on trains know that sometimes they can be a bit frustrating. However, our frustration is normally with delayed trains or packed carriages, not fellow passengers.
Not so in this video. Spotted and filmed yesterday by Daniel Bentley, it’s an entertaining snapshot of a bizarre situation when a man reading a newspaper refuses to let the passenger next to him off the train.
The man with the newspaper and the bald man both got on the train with me at Manchester Piccadilly.
Soon after setting off the bald man requested to the newspaper man that he wanted some elbow room so he could “work” on his laptop. This was met with a blank stare.
The bald man then got out his laptop and proceeded to watch some sort of comedy video (judging by his giggles every couple of minutes).
Shortly before arriving in Preston, the newspaper man barked at the bald man: “WILL YOU MOVE YOUR ELBOW PLEASE!”
I then caught on camera the ensuing argument.
Check out the video below.
