Today. Now that we are all caught up!
I'm used to seeing police there all the time now. It's become every day that they do this.
I get on the train, the man is nowhere in sight. Yay!
I see a woman running for the train, she is older and I'm surprised she's rushing when it's not time to leave yet. She gets on huffing and sits next to the woman with the bag. They have arranged it now that this other lady sits next to her so she can't save the seat with her bag anymore.
The man gets on *dammit* with a police officer. Does the same 'can I sit here' routine she said no.
Then he pulls out a piece of paper in front of her and the officer. It's A DOCTORS NOTE. NOW he says he has seizures and needs to sit in THAT seat because there is more room if he falls down. He won't hit that divider in front of the seats on the right.
The woman that ran to get there before him (it's funny... like a Dart Amazing Race lol!) told the police officer that if it's that bad 1. he doesn't need to be driving and 2. he needs to sit behind the operator in the front car.
In the end, he sat on the right side as always but geez...
He's going to crack one day. Watch for it on the news. He never gets ugly, he never raises his voice, he's abnormally polite about the entire thing and is always always smiling even when just sitting there riding listening to his headphones.
I'll post if anything new happens! So far though the woman has 4 people on the train (don't look at me) that support her and he has the police officer and his doctor lol.
Personally? I think it might be an OCD kind of thing and she needs to stop and think about that for a minute. She doesn't want the confrontation... then give up the seat and sit on the right. That's the only way to make it stop IMO.
