Not all heroes wear capes—some wear sunglasses, shawls, and satchels. Take this anonymous hero right here who was riding the New York City subway when he chanced upon a kid taking up THREE seats and refusing to move his legs so others could sit.
Most people faced with this situation would probably give a disapproving look, feel a bit annoyed by the injustice of it all and continue to stand, while the boy selfishly luxuriated on his own personal couch. Not this hero, however. A young Elton John look-a-like, tired of still standing, showed up and was having none of it. “This lil ass— wouldn’t move his legs for 3 adults, so this guy comes and just SITS on his legs #mykidcouldnever,” Isabel tweeted along with a few pics and a short video of the incident.
The look on the kidspreader’s face after having his bubble burst is priceless. He looks genuinely shocked at being called out for his arrogant behavior, and his guardian seemed to halfheartedly defend him without ever looking truly concerned either way.
The hero got plenty of praise on Twitter, after the post was shared over 47k times. People taking up more than their fair space on public transport really seems to strike a nerve with the internet, and this guy is this latest to be lauded for his service to the rest of us.
