Man angers fellow commuters with 'disgusting' act
A man in London is stirring controversy online after his fellow commuters caught him bringing part of his morning routine onto the Underground.
The attention-grabbing incident took place on Wednesday morning as passengers were awaiting their trains inside Euston Station. That's when numerous bystanders began noticing the unidentified man — who happened to be brushing his teeth.
It seems as though many passengers were specifically outraged by the way the man — who was dressed in a tucked-in shirt and dress trousers — was going about his teeth cleaning. One Twitter user, Melissa Therms, shared photos of the man, as well as the pile of toothpaste-filled spit he left on the subway platform.
Disgusting behavior at #Euston station this morning," Therms wrote. "Packed platform and this man starts brushing his teeth and spits repeatedly on the platform."
At least one other social media user also captured the man's actions, posting a video of him brushing his teeth in a different part of the station.
"He been brushing his pegs for quite sometime too!" Danny Edwards, another Twitter user, shared.
The incident sparked a widespread conversation online, with many people sharing their displeasure with the man's behaviour.
"Oh for god's sake! Why can't people just wake up 3 minutes earlier?" one person tweeted.
"Oh no! Some people seem pleased with their own efficiency, but surely this is not hygienic, along with shaving, tweezing, nail cutting and squeezing zits," another wrote.
"I am a fairly reserved chap but I would have said something here and probably become quite angry. It's vile and unfair on other passengers. What sort of moron would do this?!" another commented.
