TORONTO – Have you ever come across a person sitting on a bus with their bag perched nicely on the seat beside them and refuses to relinquish the spot?

Toronto commuter Brenda Davie has and she did the one thing she could think of — take pictures of the incident and post them on Facebook.

The episode allegedly occurred this week when Davie got on the 72 Pape bus after work and confronted a man in a green shirt and a bowler hat for leaving his bag on the seat next to him.

“I ask this COLOSSAL DOUCHEBAG very nicely if he can please move his bag off the seat beside him so I can sit down. He says ‘no my bag is there’,” she wrote.

After a second request to have the bag removed the man allegedly stepped on Davie’s foot and proceeded to push her into a crowd of passengers.

The exchange is currently under investigation by the Toronto Transit Commission but not before Davie’s post went viral and public shaming of the
etiquette perpetrator had begun.

“I asked him afterwards if he felt like a big man now and told him I’m glad his backpack was comfortable. And that’s the kind of day I’m having,” wrote Davie.

Some users on the social media website Reddit urged caution regarding the incident as not all the facts are known in the case.
