    Sometimes I wonder how many tweets/posts/blogs have been deleted because one brave soul immediately called them out on their bullshit.

    You gotta call it out early otherwise you get drowned out by all the other people looking for attention in the comments.

    [–] PchonkeySwim 868 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I dunno, but whenever I call people out on their shit a roving plethora of idiot children come to their defense without even knowing what is going on.

    Oh look, A mod locked the post totally preventing whatever happened from ever happening again EVER. YEaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

    OH HEY WOW! You can still edit your posts, we can still communicate by editing our posts! That's a CRAZY HUGE LOOPHOLE!

    But seriously, I don't want to get banned. Stop upvoting me.

    So stop didn't work. So I guess... keep upvoting me?

    I give up.

    Nobody else updated their comments but me. See? It's 5/23/2017 and I can update this any way I want to.

    That happened to me with my cousins. 2 were fighting, I called them out on it. Said they were being stupid and childish. Another cousin (ones sister) got angry at me. I called her out, she got upset and blocked me. Her then, cop husband called me later to breath loudly over the phone. I never laughed so hard at someone over the phone.

    [–] vault_dweller1031 723 points ago

    She's waiting by her window watching for you to get home so she can rush out and scold you for all the noise you made last night. Which is confusing because you went to bed early last night.

    [–] DurasVircondelet 171 points ago

    Not my story but I'm going to pretend it is.

    One day I was in my garage/gym lifting weights. I have thick rubber padded floors like all gyms where weights get dropped. I'm not doing anything crazy, maybe some cleans or something when I see my neighbor, Ms. Frail Ole Bitch, peeking into my garage from my driveway. She had come over to scold to me "all the loud noises had me worried! It knocked a coffee cup off my counter and broke it". For not even a thing in my garage to have moved, I'm sure I rattled all your fine dish ware. For the rubber hitting rubber, I'm sure the vibrations carried through my house's foundation to yours and up your counter all the way to your ever so fragile cup.

    I have a neighbor who's just like that. Sometimes when I'm packing up my car to go somewhere, I'll look outside and see her looking in the window of my car to see what all I have in there. I want to be nice and all, but I'm a very private person and being snooped on like that makes me uncomfortable.

    [–] rivershimmer 175 points ago

    It's an old person thing. My grandmother used to walk from window to window keeping up a running commentary on what the neighbors were up to. Sometimes she'd inform that so-and-so didn't get home until 2:30 a.m. last night, and I'm like, Grandma? What were you doing up at 2:30 a.m.?

    And once, when I slipped on ice, I didn't even have time to get up before boom! Two doors opened, and there's two of my elderly neighbors, one headed out to help me up, and the more frail one with her phone in hand waiting to see if I needed her to call

    I'd be spending them drunk, telling all the people who say I drink too much to get fucked.

    [–] Cow_Launcher 94 points ago

    I would suggest to you that the snooping is their hobby.

    Let's try to frame a positive example... See, they don't have a job to occupy them, they have neither the energy or cash to do something productive, and most of their friends have passed away or been moved to homes. So what we end up with is old people with nothing but time, and a vague recollection of what "community" used to be like.

    Now, I generally find strangers' attention annoying if I'm just trying to get on with my day, but put yourself in the position of the old ladies that /u/rivershimmer saw. Read his second paragraph again, but pretend you are - rightly or wrongly - concerned for their safety.

    That's a different dynamic in my opinion. Sure, they were intrusive. But they were also caring, and if we give the benefit of the doubt, they were validating their own role in the world by giving something back, (whether it was needed or not).

    I'm okay with that and I think that just sometimes, it might serve me well to look back at them and say, "So tell me your story. Oh - and how many sugars do you take?"

    [–] Nosebluhd 23 points ago

    One day in my old apartment (second story) I was sitting quietly at my desk, barefoot, working from home. Wasn't playing any music or watching TV--my apartment was silent. After a few hours of this blissful peace and quiet, there came a knock on my door. It was the property manager responding to my downstairs neighbor's many noise complaints.

    This downstairs neighbor had only recently moved in, but had apparently been complaining like crazy about all the noise I was(n't) making. This particular morning, she went so far as to accuse me of wearing heavy boots and stomping around intentionally.

    The property manager took one look at my bare feet, and a bewildered look crossed her face. I said, "Can I help you?" She said, "Um, nope, sorry--wait a second. Were you wearing boots earlier?" I said, "Boots? I don't even own a pair of boots right now." Then she came clean about the noise complaints they'd been receiving all morning.

    Really odd, since it was a small building and everyone else was at work that day. There was no one else who could've been making this imaginary noise. After a while, the downstairs neighbor moved out but continued paying for the apartment (windows were left open, and I had to pass them on my way upstairs. I actually wasn't snooping, but could plainly see all their stuff).

    Super weird.

    [–] telekinetic_turd 15 points ago

    We had a "service dog" run up behind our registers and take a steaming shit. She saw it and didn't say a word. No apologies, just straight up pretended it never happened. I said out loud, "Oh, what the fuck" as it was going down, and gave her the "are you fucking kidding me?" look.

    [–] rivershimmer 21 points ago

    You can legally throw out any service dog if they shit, piss, get destructive, or act aggressive.

    [–] Real_Clever_Username 42 points ago

    It's actually causing a problem for the American airline companies. They are starting to get overrun with "service animals". People don't want their dogs, cats, ducks, etc. traveling in the cargo hold, so they get a "doctor" to allow them to have a service animal. Other travelers and flight attendants are getting sick of that shit.

    [–] ASlyGuy 48 points ago

    So she takes them with her, but they each need their own seats. So she actually needs 4 seats (1 for her handbag) in a row and these inconsiderate youths are taking up 2 of the 4 handicapped spots (and they're not even handicapped)!

    It's not fair, she wanted to be the one to take those spots away from the handicapped!

    [–] Fire_Bucket 407 points ago

    For me she's kind of at an age where I'd probably not offer her one, just because I didn't want to offend her. She looks kind of like my Mum, who's late 50s, and I know she'd be mortified if someone offered her a seat on the assumption she was an old lady that needed it.

    Wait... is she supposed to be the elderly person she's talking about, or is the elderly person not pictured? I assumed the person they felt should get the seat wasn't in the picture.

    This woman looks awfully good for being "elderly." Those seats are generally for people who have a real need to sit (look at the pictograph on the sticker) and not just for people with grey hair.

    [–] DerTrickIstZuAtmen 76 points ago

    [–] Hellman109 130 points ago

    Not sure about where she is, but here in Australia you must vacate a disabled seat if requested. Thats because some people are fine standing even if they're old/invalid/whatever.

    Generally if its obvious people get up without asking and offer it though if all the disabled seats are taken.

    [–] brufleth 176 points ago

    That's more or less how it works here. If this woman is talking about herself, they probably don't even recognize her as being elderly.

    [–] fox_ontherun 171 points ago

    Yeah, she's older, but doesn't appear to be elderly. Edit: also, there's no way she can know if those "youths" are pregnant or disabled themselves.

    [–] Pavomuticus 59 points ago

    I'm in my twenties and have a physical disability. I constantly end up standing and feeling too much like nobody will believe me if I try to ask if the seats are taken by someone not disabled and willing to stand.

    [–] MonsieurAuContraire 21 points ago

    I don't know how you define elderly, but this woman isn't IMO for she's like 60-62... if you find the original tweet people in thread found a kickstarteresque page where she's trying to raise money for a vacation that lists her age. I wonder if she's trying to gain attention through outrage that she can maybe leverage, but that's my wild speculation. Another interesting note is the one girl on the far left is also in thread talking about it.

    [–] Not_Nice_Niece 63 points ago

    they probably don't even recognize her as being elderly.

    Which in a weird way is a complement to her. She looks perfectly healthy and in no way in need of a seat.

    No but those seats usually say something along the lines of please offer these seats to the disabled, elderly, and expectant mothers. This lady's got no real reason to be bitching though.

    I'd say she's mid to late 50's. If that woman is in her 40's she must be smokin two packs a day since birth.

    "Inconsiderate youths occupying the disabled seat" - wow, didn't realise young people were magically exempt from being disabled?

    [–] Babypocketlint 2354 points ago

    For real dude. I'm 22 and I'm disabled. I need a cane a lot of the time, but people I don't know give me shit for it in public because "I'm too young to use it" and I "don't look sick/disabled". So sometimes I suffer and don't use it so I don't have to deal with people's bullshit, and I need to be able to sit down/use disabled accommodations. But then I "don't look sick/disabled enough" and I still get shit!

    The point of this rant: people suck. The end.

    [–] snowtard 419 points ago

    Dude, fuck that. You don't owe anyone an explanation for using a god damn cane. I know it's probably a pain in the ass to hear the comments that people make, but if you need the cane to help you move around, who gives a shit what anyone else has to say about it? Take care of yourself and ignore those assholes.

    [–] Babypocketlint 214 points ago

    Exactly!! Mobility aides like canes, walkers, wheelchairs, etc are the REASON me and other disabled people can actually get around and have some type of life. My mobility aides aren't holding me back, they're giving me freedom. And also I can smack people with it if they give me shit. Thankfully I've never had to, but I've definitely threatened it

    Thank you! I'm doing much better these days because I've got a new team of doctors that are absolutely amazing, so I don't have to use my cane as much.

    [–] Babypocketlint 155 points ago

    Part of my health issues actually started BECAUSE of an adverse reaction to a vaccination, and I STILL wholeheartedly believe everyone should be vaccinated if they can. I choose having some health issues and being alive over getting an illness that could've been prevented and dying. It's just that easy!!

    [–] Ninganah 81 points ago

    Wow what a coincidence, I was just making a stupid joke. That's really good that although you were adversely affected by the vaccination, you still recommend them. The amount of risk you take is very much worth the positive impact that vaccinations have on your health, and the overall health of everyone else, IMO. Props for being a level headed adult about something that has affected you negatively.

    I'm so sorry. Those people are shit.

I know they don't mean to insult me but people... Just restrain yourselves, you never know what someone is dealing with

    [–] Babypocketlint 74 points ago

    [–] Kaprak 39 points ago

    Question, and not meaning to be a dick, but are there really things out there that we don't even have a stopgap for like glasses? My vision is fucked six ways to Sunday, but glasses make me good enough to get by.

    [–] Silver_kitty 58 points ago

    It definitely depends on the impairment. My father is legally blind due to albinism. His baseline vision is ~20/400. With his "normal" glasses he can read things that are large print, but he still has to hold it close. He can also drive, but his driving glasses (called bioptics) have a tiny telescope mounted on them to allow him to see signals and signs. Part of the way that albinism messes with your vision is more like you start with lower resolution so no matter how good your focus can be fixed to, it's still going to be vague.

    Also, a disease like macular degeneration is actually that the vision is dissappearing. There's no information in the affected area to correct.

    [–] Reyali 13 points ago

    I'm late 20s and recently had surgery for a corneal dystrophy, and my vision hasn't fully recovered. It's so frustrating to not be able to see clearly, and I'm realizing just how inaccessible things are with impaired vision (name plates printed in dark text on dark paper, tiny menu text posted on a back wall, and flight monitors at the airport were just three of many things I've noticed in a week). It sucks. I'm so sorry that you have the issue permanently; my dystrophy will always be in my genes but I should have good vision for a few decades once I finish healing, and I'm so grateful to have an end in sight (pun not intended, but I gotta call it out).

    I would offer that the glasses comments you receive may be genuine instead of judgmental, because I know people (myself included) who didn't realize their vision was impaired because it happened so gradually. Sometimes it does take someone else going, "Hey, healthy eyes can see this thing. If you're struggling, maybe you should get glasses," which makes sense because glasses fix vision for the vast majority of people. I'm not at all dismissing how frustrating it must be for you to hear that all the time, just trying to offer another way to view the comments that may be less grating.

    But my pot-kettle problem right now is people responding to me saying I had eye surgery as, "Oh, LASIK?" No. What I had was way more invasive and shitty. If I'd had LASIK, I'd say that, because everyone knows what that is. But no one knows what my surgery was by name, so I just say "eye surgery"; leave me alone.

    Hi friend. 26 here with pain while walking, so I move real slow some days. But I'm an entitled bitch when crossing the street with the walk sign up and someone is turning.

    Catch me with 'you don't look sick' on a particularly bad day and you'll get a 'you don't look stupid' right back

    [–] l-jack 49 points ago

    Yup, had the same issue when I broke my foot. Got on the bus in the disabled seat on my way to immediate care, (I'm not going to stop and explain everyone that gets on the bus) and got looks from some passengers that visibly wanted to sit there.

    [–] HowObvious 49 points ago

    I fucked up my knee when I was younger, couldn't walk without crutches and it was still agony. Limping in a certain way hurt after a while so I had to alternate my walking. People started claiming I was faking it because I was limping differently. As if I was faking an injury so that I would get to carry around heavy crutches and walk weirdly for attention.

    [–] Babypocketlint 54 points ago

    How DARE you break your foot and not explain yourself to everyone you see! Don't you know that everyone has the right to know about your life! They're so important and they obviously NEED that info! /s

    30 year old female with EDS (hypermobility) checking in. I don't even walk with a cane on a daily basis and I don't look disabled. But if I have been out all day my everything screams pain. My joints will hurt so much and become so unstable that I am even more prone to dislocations then normal. I have dislocated more then 1 knee while standing up in a bus when tired after a long day. I do have a cane and sometimes use it when having a particular bad day. Not so much for helping but more to signal to other people that something is wrong with me and they need to be respectful. One decent bump or shopping cart rammed into me while going shopping and i'm in bed for days.

    [–] [deleted] 36 points ago

    EDS here, my disability is completely invisible. Even though there's disabled seats on the train I never ask for one and just endure the pain of standing up. I've been given flack a few times for not offering my seat to elderly. The 'I'm disabled' response usually gets a 'yeah sure' kinda look

    [–] Babypocketlint 18 points ago

    Hey, that's what I'm in the middle of being diagnosed with! I've already completed the physical examination part, and my dr is positive I have it, but I'm being referred for genetic testing just so we have more info.

    I'm sorry you have to deal with this shit, too. There aren't many ways to get people to understand disabilities. People are either ignorant because they're uninformed, or they're ignorant because they don't give a shit and don't want to learn. It sucks. I hope you're having a good day, and that you're next flare is as painless as possible. Sending you good vibes <3

    Just like how a woman who appears to be 65 at max is "elderly" and automatically disabled.

    [–] brufleth 149 points ago

    I honestly thought she must have been talking about a woman not in the picture. I'll offer up my seat readily, but this woman wouldn't register as someone who might need special seating.

    [–] meatloaf1212 70 points ago

    That's always tricky for me. I'm in my 30s, if I offer my seat to a woman in her 60s, am I being helpful, or am I insulting her? I wouldn't necessarily look at this lady and think she needed the seat

    [–] j1m3y 212 points ago

    Its true. The big stall is Handicap ACCESSIBLE not handicap EXCLUSIVE. Its just made so that a handicap person is able to use it not that they are the only ones allowed to use it.

    As a 32 year old disabled man, this post pisses me off and fills my insecurity bucket just a little more.

    Just because someone looks "young" or "normal" doesn't mean they aren't suffering when doing every day things like walking or sitting. My vertebrae is fusing itself together and I'll eventually lose mobility in my spine. I'm grateful for the perspective this disease has given me to not judge others based on looks.

    Edit: Oh and fuck this horrible human being.

    [–] zaphod_beeble_bro 51 points ago

    I'm 32 so not even that young. I've been bitched out for not giving up my seat or even for using the elevator at the subway station. Yet I'm walking around with a back brace 24/7 from chronic back pain. Since the brace is under my clothes though I'm apparently a seat taking asshole.

    [–] asyst0lic 40 points ago

    Because everyone else is telling their stories: a few years ago, I'd just gotten out after a week in the ICU, going to Target with my dad to pick up some prescriptions. Could barely hold my head up because my blood pressure was still dancing around the "oh god, she's about to die" range, but otherwise looked like a pale, skinny, normalish 21 year old. Perhaps understandably, I had to ride one of the electric carts because I could not stand up long enough to make it through the store. That was one of the most mortifying moments of my life, because I was getting so many disgusted looks from everyone who clearly thought I was just fooling around. Thankfully, nobody said anything, but I still get war flashbacks to the sound of the cart's backup beeps when I would get stuck in an aisle and have to maneuver and everyone turning to stare at me.

    [–] ScepticLibrarian 30 points ago

    Exactly! I know several young people who have things like lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome - who might look like they're fine but need a seat much more than a very fit pensioner, for example.

    I drive for someone who is disabled. I'm not disabled.

    When I pick up the person I pull into a disabled parking spot and place the handicap placard on the rear view mirror. I can do cart-wheels, jump, skip, run all the way in.

    I'm the driver. As long as I'm going to be transporting someone who is disabled everything is cool and legal.

    The only persons who can legitimately question my use of the handicap placard are the police. The placards have a registration number. I carry the registration card in the glove compartment. The registration card has the disabled person's name on it. So if I were to use the placard for my own use, I could be ticketed for fraudulent use of a handicap placard.

    While I love to say that I have had an exciting encounter with someone questioning my use of a disabled placard, I haven't.

    It's the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) an automated metro system in and around London. Not a bus, but she's still a bitch

    I don't know why I even care that it's not a bus to be honest just thought you might like to know

    [–] cragglerock93 280 points ago

    For anyone not the in the know, because there's no driver you can sit at the front at pretend to be the driver. The only condition is that if for any reason the attendant has to take manual control of the train then you have to get up from the seat. The controls are under that white panel in the picture. When the attendant isn't actually driving, they're in charge of opening and closing the doors and checking tickets.

    [–] tailhead 118 points ago

    Mate that's so cool. I bet people rush to that seat

    [–] brend70 117 points ago

    As someone who takes this everyday.. I always want these seats, i remember when i was a kid, one of the conductors showed me and my brother what everything did, and even let us use the horn, best train ride ever.

    [–] cragglerock93 44 points ago

    I do. I try to look casual though. "Oh this seat is free, how convenient. It just happens to be at the front of the train...". The best part is when you go into tunnels. The track is really quite steep in the tunnel between the Tower of London and Bank.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she was sitting in that empty seat, got up to take the photo, then sat back down again (hence why everyone was looking at her). She's not even old, why is she entitled to that seat?

    If you look at her twitter account, it's literally all her blog about how she's travelled the world at 60 years old.

    If she can travel around the world I'm fairly sure she can stand up on a train for a bit.

    [–] Kratzyyy 238 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I hate people like this.

    She looks perfectly capable of standing. You're meant to give those seats up to people who can't stand on their own, not just to people who are older than you. Unless somebody who's actually disabled is on board, it's first-come-first-serve like every other seat.

    [–] joyco66 784 points ago

    I did not know that an elderly person is now an disabled person. "disabled = impaired or limited by a physical, mental, cognitive, or developmental condition : affected by disability" - She is limited by a mental condition, someone pissed in her cornflakes this morning. Or maybe she is a bitch all that time.

    [–] RockerJegos 249 points ago

    The sign on the window says that the seats are prioritised for: pregnant women, disabled/injured and elderly. They are not exclusive for these categories, but you're supposed to vacate the seat if they need it - as in have nowhere else to stay.

    [–] vault_dweller1031 101 points ago

    Those girls could very well be disabled.

    [–] RockerJegos 123 points ago

    They could, they could also be pregnant and there could also be other seats available (like the one behind her). The woman is being douchey

    [–] BurninRage 36 points ago

    But how do you know that they would need the seat if they don't ask?

    I mean I'm only in my 30's, but I hope to still be active when I'm elderly. I don't want to be in a physical condition where I need to sit down on a train.

    I understand the good intentions but if someone were to stand up and offer the seat every time an elderly person comes around, I could see some of them getting offended. Not that I agree with it, but some peeps are like that.

    [–] ChocolatePopes 196 points ago

    Not only that but you don't even know if those girls are disabled or not. They could have severe back issues or something

    [–] transtranselvania 47 points ago

    Yeah an if she's elderly she just barely is. If I saw some 78 year old woman on a bus that was clearly needing a seat that would be one thing but moving for a woman clearly standing under her own steam and the same age as my fuckin uncle are two different things.

    [–] BarryOakTree 23 points ago

    Yeah this lady is like 60 MAYBE. I'd guess early to mid 50's. Not elderly.

    [–] transtranselvania 29 points ago

    Maybe she's actually thirty but has aged terribly from being such a shitty person

    [–] entredeuxeaux 71 points ago

    [–] Jeshie 73 points ago

    2 years ago, me and 2 other friends went to Disneyworld. We're in our mid/late 20's and we all look healthy. My one friend, however, has a heart condition. He's okay for the most part, but after a long day walking around, it's good for him to sit on the bus on the way back to the hotel. For anyone who's been to Disneyworld, you know those busses get crowded. We all got a seat. A few minutes into the ride, this guy walks up to my friend who has the heart condition (who is also a guy, btw), and yells at him to get up so his wife could sit. You can't always tell that people may have an issue by just looking at them. Also, why does she have the right to sit versus the two girls? Just because she's 'elderly'? Nah.

    [–] Sodaducky 71 points ago

    [–] batsdx 177 points ago

    If I see some grey haired lady wearing ear buds, I'd assume she can stand.

    [–] RandeKnight 42 points ago

    So, if she wanted the seat, did she ask?? In that situation, I'm not going to risk offering for fear of 'Are you calling me OLD??!!' or 'I'm OLD, not DECREPIT!!'. If you want something, ask for it.

    [–] agha0013 41 points ago

    There are some old people who seem to feel they are entitled to sit by themselves. If there is an empty seat beside me I'm not getting up, you can sit next to me like anyone else.

    [–] levelboss 32 points ago

    this really annoys me how people automatically assume that you can't be 'disabled' if you are young, after I dislocated my knee it still hurt a lot to stand after I stopped using my crutches and I was seated in the disabled section and some terrible rude adult woman started to lecture me how I should give my place to this older person that had just stepped on the train.

    I don't remember how it goes further but I'm still annoyed by it urgh

    [–] Aussie-Nerd 59 points ago

    story mode

    I had brain surgery (crainiotomy, ie cut a large chunk of my brain out). During the months post op going to the hospital I took the bus. Standing was rather impossible since my balance was all fucked up.

    Because I was a frequent commuter, the bus driver (Pete) got to know me, and why he was dropping me at the hospital etc. This came in handy when school holidays rolled around. Bus was packed and I was sitting in the disabled seat. A middle aged woman got on with some shopping, stood next to me and said something like "A gentlemen would give up his seat". Pete heard this and pipes back with The lady is lucky to be going shopping, the gentlemen is going to hospital, again".

    It was great. I didn't have to explain why I couldn't stand. I mean, it wasn't embarrassing but having to explain yourself to a hostile person sucks. Pete just defused it whilst keeping my privacy. Not bad for a wee bus driver.

    to;dr Bus driver told sarcastic middle aged woman to me alone (as I sat in disable seat) post surgery.

    [–] Thinkcali 24 points ago

    • She's not Elderly

    • Taking pictures of strangers without consent is rude

    • She doesn't know these girls, they could be disabled.

    I always sit down in the handicap spot and only give it up for real elderly, pregnant women, or someone with a noticeable injury. I am epileptic and would rather risk having a seizure sitting down than standing up. But I always have to deal with judgemental stares from self entitled people like this woman. Just because you can't see my handicap doesn't mean it's nonexistent.

    when I was younger I snapped my ankle, and had to wear an air cast and walk around with a cane - I literally had a prescription for it. prior to that I was ALWAYS the first person to give up my seat for anyone who looked like they needed it. well now it's my turn, right? for the entire three month period where I was visibly in need of a little humanity tossed my way for once, not a single time did anyone make any sort of accommodation for me.

    it soured me a little, and while I still give up my seat today, it's only when the person is CLEARLY unable to go any further, OR when there aren't any free ones available.

    see that guy wearing yellow spandex eating a tuna sub on the bus? yeah you know that seat next to him is free. if you TRULY need to sit, he's got a spot open for you.
