OAP screams at woman and child for not giving up seat on bus – but people are divided | The Sun

THIS is the moment a pensioner screamed at a woman and child because they wouldn’t give her a seat on the bus.

Vinay Kumar Parbot captured the intense exchange while on his way home on a bus in Barnet, North London last Tuesday.



The 31-year-old couldn't believe his eyes when he hopped on board, only to be greeted by an elderly woman in a fierce clash with a woman and a child.

The video shows the old woman, stood at the front of the bus, presumably on her way home with groceries as she stands beside a plastic Tesco bag.

The OAP is seemingly mid-argument with the woman over her refusal to move herself and her child from their seats.

She can be heard shouting: "It's not your seat! He shouldn't be there" while prodding a finger in the direction of the youngster – who is not visible on camera.

The video then cuts to later in the argument as the woman continues: "Some drivers will tell you, they'll make you go to the back of the bus because they say that they're priority seats."

The woman can be heard saying "Shut up" in the midst of the OAP's spiel before incredulously replying: "Priority seats?"

The woman is cut off mid-sentence though as the elderly woman explosively interrupts while thrusting her hands in the mother's face, causing her to visibly recoil in shock.

The OAP angrily shouts: "Well then you obviously don't even understand the bloody pictures!"

The video then cuts again to another point in the altercation.

The old woman shouts: "If you were a nice lady you would have moved over for me and I would have said thank you" while pointing at two empty seats on the other side of the bus.

The woman appears to shout back: "Move me, move me there!"

The OAP then turns towards the front of the bus and says: "Get off here driver."

As the bus approaches its stop, she turns back to the duo and says: "Just remember next time you get told, don't think of yourself."

The footage then ends abruptly before the mother can respond.

Category manager Vinay uploaded the video to TikTok last Tuesday with the caption "Feel really sorry for this old lady requesting for the priority seat so she can sit next to her shopping bags…"

The post has since received over 24,000 likes and more than 1,800 comments.

One Tiktok user wrote: "Respect is earned, no matter how old you are. Some older people can be the rudest, most entitled people I've ever met."

Another said: "I’m all for giving up priority seats but like… there was an empty priority seat right next to it?"

A third commented: "That old lady is way too aggressive. Like there are seats next to her."

Another added: "Priority seats aren’t just for elderly people they are also for pregnant women and people who are less able to stand."

A fifth replied: "In all my time in retail I’ve never been verbally abused by anyone younger ever. Always older people."

Speaking today Vinay said: "I got onto the bus, and an argument was already going on between an old lady and a young lady and her child for the priority seat.

"At first I felt pity for the old lady who had to request that the young lady and her child move so she could have a priority seat.

"But later I thought the old lady was a bit aggressive and stubborn because other seats on the bus were available.

"As you can see from the video, there was a priority seat next to the one she requested. But she was so stubborn that she wanted to sit next to her shopping as someone had previously stolen her groceries.

"But again, it was a bit outrageous because the seat available was close to where she had kept her shopping bags, and she could keep her eyes on it."
