We have been taught since young to give the elderly due respect, but what should you do when that respect is not mutual?

Stomper S was on his way to work yesterday (Jan 18) at around 3.50pm when he came across an elderly man behaving indecently on the train.

According to the Stomper, the elderly man boarded the train together with him at Sengkang MRT station towards HarbourFront station.

In the photos submitted to Stomp, the man can be seen resting his feet on an electric mobility scooter. 

Said the Stomper: 

"He was scratching his groin and nose. We know you are an elderly person, but where are your basic manners?

"Commuters who noticed the man either ignored him or went to another cabin."
