Having to witness a row on public transport is beyond cringe-worthy. It's even worse when it turns into a shocking argument like this.

The heated argument struck up between two commuters on a packed commuter train - all because a man accused a woman of putting her muddy feet on his seat.

The five-minute row - which seems to have taken place in England - broke out in front of other passengers, one of whom sneakily captured it on their mobile phone.

The footage was eventually posted on Facebook and shows the woman swearing at the man, accusing his wife of cheating on him, and even using racial slurs against him.

"Touch me again, I'll fucking slap you," the woman says as the video starts, we assume because the man has moved her feet off his seat. "You're an idiot."

She then adds: "That's why you're not married, you idiot. No one will stand your stupid accent."

The man laughs at her dramatically as he shows off his wedding ring, waving it in her face. He's scored a point there.

"She's not cheating on you? Are you sure?" the woman asks.

"No, because she's a really nice Yoruba lady," the man replies, referring to the ethnic group of people mostly from Nigeria.

"She's Nigerian?" the woman asks. "So she's my people. Trust me, she's using your money! She doesn't love you."

The woman is clearly pissed off at the man for touching her, and repeats that she'll hit him if he does it again, suggesting that his wife would probably beat him up for doing the same thing.

"I don't want to touch you," the man replies. "All I want is for you not to put your shoes on my chair so that I have to get dirt on my trousers."

The pair briefly stare each other down before the man laughs again, and that's when it really kicks off, to the point where the woman threatens to boot the man in the balls.

"You're laughing because you can't do shit," the woman says. "Listen, my feet are literally by your balls. I'm literally grabbing you by your balls." At this point she does the 'claw' hand gesture. Fucking hell.

"No, you're not! No, you're not!" the man laughs. "You're just making yourself look a complete fool just because you can't respect other people's property. Take your shoes off my seat."

The argument looks to be simmering down, with the pair starting to check their phones, but the woman then tops it off by calling the man a "white idiot".

"Oh, racism as well now?" the man replies. "Racism. I love it."

It all seems like a bit much over nothing, but to be fair no one wants shit on their seat. It's usually chewing gum.

My thoughts go out to the passengers who had to witness it, awkwardly pretending to send a text message the whole time.
