In the video, the young woman can be heard telling the older lady who is waiting for a seat on board a train travelling to Tiong Bahru station: “You pay, I pay. I don’t think you deserve it (the seat).”

The older woman retorted that she only asked for the seat since her leg was painful. She then commented that the younger one was disrespectful and that others on board the train would give up their seat for her.

The younger lady snapped that the older lady would have to earn her respect, triggering a quarrel.

A passenger seated nearby tried to defuse the situation by offering the older woman her seat, just beside the reserved seat in question, when the young lady can be heard telling the older one to get out of her sight.

She even stood up to give her seat to the auntie, while the woman told the auntie to get out of her sight.

Netizens responding to the video had mixed reactions, with some supporting the younger lady and others sticking up for the older one:
