A woman who had allowed her grandson to pee in a subway and then proceeded to complain loudly that the carriage was “dirty” before stalking off has been roundly criticized by netizens for uncivilized behaviour, Sohu News reported. Talk about double standards.
An eyewitness, Ms Liu, told Shenyang Evening News that this incident happened on the afternoon of November 23. when the subway was about to approach Yuhong Guangchang in Shenyang.
The grandmother, who was accompanied by the child’s father, started to move towards an area near the carriage’s entrance with the 3 or 4 year old child in tow. In front of all the other commuters on the train, she pulled down the child’s trousers and encouraged him to pee on the spot. Alarmed, the child’s dad rummaged for an empty drink bottle for the child instead, but the grandmother brushed off his actions urged the child to pee in the train. The father appeared extremely helpless.
Ms Liu also said that right after the deed was done, the child’s grandmother did not bother to clean the mess up, with urine trickling all over the carriage towards the area near the train seats. All passengers on the seats were forced to stand up and leave the seats as the mess was too disgusting to handle, with one of them accidentally stepping on a puddle of urine.
What made the situation all the more tolerable for Ms Liu was the fact that the child’s grandmother immediately acted as if nothing had happened right after the incident, guiding the child towards another carriage and saying: “This place is too dirty, leave quickly!”
Another similarly revolting incident happened in June, when a girl peed on the metro because her mum was too busy being on the phone. Looks like the government’s attempts at providing pee apps to ward off such uncivilized behaviour has yet to pay off.
