Mum punches glass panel and picks fight with man who took her standing room on the MRT

The altercation took place with minimal provocation and many netizens on social media commented that it was likely caused by stress and post natal depression

Earlier today, a video circulating on social media went viral as it featured a rather irate mother, who went to the extent of punching the glass panel on the train to prove her point.

The video that made its way round the Internet on Friday, March 8, showed a mother with a baby in a pram getting rather angry at a man who took her standing room on the train.

The baby’s mother could be seen seated on a seat usually reserved for those with children, the elderly, or the handicapped. Next to her stood a man who seemed to be rather involved with his mobile phone, with the two being separated by a glass panel.

In the video, the lady could be seen saying loudly to the man, “oh no no, you just now, I was supposed to push (the pram) here”. She gestured at the space next to the glass panel where the man was standing, and expressed that she wanted to leave her baby’s pram there while she sat on the seat reserved for those with children.

She then tapped the glass rather pointedly and said, “You crossed over my freaking daughter to stand here”.

While the man’s reply to her was inaudible, he may have asked her if she owned the space she was referring to as she then yelled, “Ya I didn’t buy (it), you know. You wanna fight?”

“You want to fight, you say!” she yelled, as she told him not to run his mouth off in Mandarin.

The woman’s next move came as a huge surprise as she punched the glass panel and proceeded to pick a fight with the man, in front of her baby and the many other commuters on the train.


The video received 66,000 views and over 1000 shares on Facebook, with many netizens saying that the lady’s behaviour was likely due to her post-natal hormones. Others also supported her and added that her rage was due to the stress she faced as a parent.
