A disabled woman has claimed she had to stand on a train for over an hour after two men ‘refused’ to move from her reserved seats.
43-year-old Cat Lee had reserved seats on the Virgin East Coast service from King’s Cross to Skipton but when she and her friend boarded the train, they found two men sitting in their seats, reports the Daily Mail.
Despite Cat telling them about her disability, the guys unbelievably refused to move – so, to make everyone aware of what high grade knobheads they were being, she posted their pictures on social media.
Cat posted her photo of the men to Facebook with the caption:
Meet these gentlemen. Travelling from London Kings Cross on the 18:03 to Skipton.
Charming fellows took reserved seats from Rach & I. As a disabled passenger, I stated why I needed my reserve seat. They didn’t budge.
I’m sure their wives and mothers would be proud of them.Advertisement
Cat said the gallant gents spent most of the journey ‘talking about luxury holidays in the Caribbean and Dubai’ before getting off at Leeds, so they’re definitely not complete fuckwits
Her friend Kath Sansom said:
Cat told them they were in her reserved seats and the men totally ignored her and kept staring at their phones.Advertisement
The aisles were rammed packed so they were unable to push past everybody to try to find a guard. She was in pain and needed her friend there for support.
Cat feels angry that people think they can do as they please with no consideration for others. The seats are reserved. End of. I just hope it sends a message to others not to do this to people.
I mean, you would think it would be a message that wouldn’t need ‘sending out’ to people, but apparently not.
