Caught on Video: Mom With Baby Told That She Can’t Sit in Train’s First Class Section

A woman with a baby clashed with an elderly woman who was adamant about not letting her to use an empty seat on the train’s first class cabin.

It’s great when we follow rules. However, we shouldn’t forget to have empathy and compassion for those who need it. An incident on a train in the UK that was caught on video presents a very good example of this scenario.

On the said footage, we can see a woman with a baby boarding the train — specifically, the Southern rail service headed to the seaside town of Brighton in East Sussex, England. Apparently, though, the mom with a baby wasn’t able to find a seat.

The two women's argument made everyone uncomfortable.

The mother had paid for a ticket for a basic seat. However, since she was reportedly unable to find a seat, she went on to the first class cabin. There, she found a seat that was reserved for elderly people, disabled people, pregnant women, and other individuals who have difficulties. Thus, the mom thought she qualified for a reserved seat.

It so happened that the empty seat that the mom found was right next to the one occupied by an elderly woman. In fact, the elderly woman had placed her bag on the empty seat.

Naturally, the mom with the baby politely asked the elderly lady to move her bag. This was when things got tense.

Is that the elderly lady's "default look"? Scary!

The elderly lady had ignored the mom’s request for her bag to be removed from the empty seat. The mom said, “I asked you nicely to put your bag on the floor and I offered to put it up. I’m carrying a baby; you have to respect me.”

The elderly woman was irked and fired back: “And you have to respect your elders and betters. People have actually paid to sit in this carriage.”

Later on, the elderly woman added, “I don’t want a screaming baby.” To which the mom replied, “He’s not screaming. He is behaving better than you.”

It so happens that another passenger caught the encounter between the mom with the baby and the elderly lady on video.

Before the hostility between the two women escalated, other passengers intervened. One was even kind enough to offer another seat to the mom with the baby.

Our verdict on this story: Although the mom with the baby may have misinterpreted the rule on priority passengers, it would not have hurt if the elderly lady showed her some kindness. After all, the seat in the first class cabin was empty. Nobody else was using it. Like we said, rules are great, but one must not forget to be kind — especially when you can afford to be.

13 Photos that Show How Different a Woman’s Body Can Look at the Same Weight

Here’s definitive proof that two women who weigh the same can have very different bodies.

So many women are so fixated on how their body looks, partly due to all the media that tells them how a "perfect" body should look. There are all sorts of magazines, advertisements, movies, and TV shows that show flawless women. These are women with flawless cellulite-free skin, tiny waists, long legs, and perfect bust-to-butt ratios that can make any girl feel insecure.

It's because of this that many women feel like they need to change their diet and exercise routine to be within the weight category that they feel is "ideal." However, it must be noted that weight doesn't necessarily reflect a person's level of fitness. For instance, a physically fit and toned woman can weigh more than a woman who has a fuller figure. They may look completely different, but if you look at the numbers on the scale, you might imagine they're the same.

So to drive the point home that lighter doesn't always mean skinnier and bigger doesn't always mean heavier, here are 13 images form MyBodyGallery that illustrate just how different two women with the same weight can look!
