Ok, we heard Hannah's awful story about someone attacking her 70 year old mother and her car, this isn't on the same scale but also focuses on the scum of society.
So my sister, who's 20, gets the train to work every day. She was telling me (and I won't go into the detail she described, I was almost sick) was spitting on the train station, I guess "in the worst way possible". She's seen him do it before, and this time went over to him and told him something to the effect of "You should stop doing that, it's not very hygenic." - politely.
The guy then erupted at her, shouting "look at you, just look at you", etc, etc, in a pathetic attempt to divert the conversation to her and make her feel small with pathetic, below-the-belt insults. Apparently this went on for some time.
My sister, 20, and this piece of filth apparently in his 50s (maybe 30s or 40s, I may be wrong!). How does someone like this manage to last that long?
It's a quiet local station so not many people around. She got on the train and got on with her day.
I've told her to report him to station staff for starters. What else can be done? He's apparently quite regular at the train station and is travelling into London.
My sister was very cool about the whole thing from what I can gather, didn't lose her cool and trolled him in a collected manor.
I'd like to begin a campaign against the guy, which would with any luck lead to him jumping on the tracks. Unfortunately we live on opposite sides of the county so getting the opportunity to meet him face to face wouldn't be easy.
