It’s all kicked off on Reddit because of a photo someone posted of their train journey. Drama? On Reddit? Well we never.
The social media user explained: “Woman in front of me put some seat attachment which prevents me from opening my tray table.”
Most people had the same snippet of advice for DriveFearless: unbuckle the strap.
Redditors were quick to leave comments like: “There is a clip. Open it,” “Good thing the buckle is right in front of you so you can [un]clip it and put your tray down” and “Just unclip it.”
It comes after another Redditor was praised for refusing to give up her first class seat to an elderly woman who 'quite rudely' confronted her.
Last month, a woman took to the social media platform to explain what happened on her seven-hour train journey from London to Aberdeen, revealing she booked her seat in advance, but was given a 'priority seat' on boarding.
Outlining the situation in Reddit’s ‘am I the a**hole' forum, the woman explained that she paid for the more expensive first class seat because she knew it was a long journey and wanted to use the time to do some work.
Shortly after boarding the train in London, however, she was confronted by an elderly passenger who pointed at the 'priority seat' sign and asked her to move.
"I told her I'd booked the seat and she'd need to speak to a member of staff to find her one," the woman explained.
The member of staff asked if either of the women would move to standard class for a seat, and the woman who had reserved hers stood her ground.
She said that while she felt 'bad', she 'didn't want to put herself in severe discomfort because someone else didn't think ahead and reserve a seat'.
While the woman wasn't sure about whether or not she had done the right thing, Reddit users were quick to assure her that she had, leaving comments like: “The train company are the a**h*les here,” “That's on the train operator. It's not on you” and “If the lady had specific requirements, she should have booked and stated as such in her reservation.”
