Sam Holland, of Elm Road, Leigh, was travelling home from London at about 9pm with his legs resting on the seat.
A man ordered the 31-year-old to take his feet off the seat, despite Mr Holland pointing out they were not touching the fabric.
Mr Holland said he was bemused by the man’s attitude because there were just seven other commuters on the carriage.So..?
I'm unaware of any unwritten rule that says it's OK to put your dirty feet on the seats if there's below minimum people in the carriage?
He said: “A few minutes later he came back and pulled my legs off the seat.
“He was looming over me and I felt I needed to stand up. I didn’t feel I was doing anything wrong. I started to speak to another passenger about the situation and then I was hit.”General disclaimer here, violence is - of course! - not the answer, and blah, blah, blah...
He said: “Since it happened I have read story after story about people dying from a single punch. I just want to use this opportunity to say: ‘I didn’t die but I could have.’”What a terrible loss it would have been to the world, eh, Sam?
British Transport Police (BTP) investigated and seized CCTV footage. However, the footage did not work and officers then interviewed the man, who said he was acting in self-defence.
BTP told Mr Holland the man will face no further action because he claimed he had “reasonable excuse to act in the way he did.”*laughs*
Mr Holland said he wants witnesses to the November 15 incident to come forward.
He added: “I just want to highlight that this is just not a nice thing to do to somebody. I just see it too often- there are too many angry people on that line.”Yes there are. Because of inbred scum like you.
At the time of writing, there are 161 comments. Virtually none have the least shred of sympathy.
And those that do...
And then a lot further down, we find that Sam's only recourse hasn't been the local paper. Like the ignorant self-absorbed little manchild he is, he's put his story on FaceBook.
And it makes him look even more of a See You Next Tuesday, and I didn't think this was even possible!
