A heated exchange between to passengers on Canada’s public transportation system sees a woman sit on a man’s feet.
A video which has now gone viral shows a middle-aged woman attempt to teach a lesson to the young man who refuses to take his feet off of the train’s seat.
The woman, who has since been identified as Miel Vasulka, said she’s received an outpouring of support for her actions – despite her aggressive way of going about them.
She claims that she didn’t actually sit on the unnamed man’s feet, but rather sat in front of them, according to The Star.
‘I want to emphasize that I didn’t sit on his feet,’ she said.
‘That would be assault, and I did not assault him.’
The young man became incredibly irate when she confronted him for his social faux pas. The two engaged in an expletive-filled argument that lasted several minutes.
Vasulka sits down on the seat where the young man is resting his feet, to which he replies ‘get off me please’.
She then said: ‘I’m trying to explain to you that your feet shouldn’t be on the seat.’
The argument accelerated as Vasulka calls the young man fat, and she later pulls the emergency lever which alerts transit employees to an incident. He eventually pushes her off of him.
It ends climatically with the young man stalking away saying, ‘I’m about to spit in your f*****g face.’
Vasulka later said of the altercation that she was just trying to make the world a better place one step at a time.
‘If I see some small injustice being done in society, I try to correct it,’ she said.
