Public transportation often brings out the worst in people. Trains and buses are hot, crowded, smelly, and the few times you actually snag a seat, you're mostly just trying to figure out if the wet spot you're sitting on is water, urine ... or worse. But recently, a Twitter user documented an unfolding story in real-time that's straight out of a rom-com, and it all took place on the London Tube.
On September 28, Twitter user @DebraChosen walked us through a modern fairytale she witnessed firsthand on the London Underground.
It all started with a stranger offering another stranger a tissue for a runny nose.
What happens next is seriously swoon-worthy.
We can sense some serious chemistry going on here.
What a gentleman!
If only everyone were this courteous on public transportation.
Sadly, it’s usually not the case.
At this point, it seems like almost the whole train is eager to find out where this thing goes.
The fact that he’s still standing right next to her seems to say a lot.
He easily could have given up his seat and walked away, leaving it at just a polite gesture.
But nope. He stayed right there.
Considering how boring sitting on the train is usually, this must have been the highlight of the other passengers’ weeks.
Be honest — wouldn’t you be eager to listen in on this?
And suddenly, the story takes an exciting turn!
The considerate stranger reaches into her purse for something…
But what is it?
Some Tic Tacs? A fresh coat of lipstick?
