She then beat the driver with her walking stick, and even threw a trash can toward him.
She yelled: “It won’t help even if you call the police 100 times.”
In the end, the driver allowed the woman and other passengers to get off, but he sat in his seat and cried.
Since the video (posted below) was posted online, it has attracted tens of thousands of comments from Chinese netizens. Though many people criticized what the woman did, a few netizens who watched the video carefully said that the bus driver’s attitude was really bad when the woman asked him to pull over, and that’s why the woman became so angry.
There are netizens saying it should be okay to let elderly passengers off along the way, while many others pointed out that it’s the law that bus drivers can’t just stop anywhere to let off passengers. What if the woman was hit by a car when she got off in the middle of the road?
But whatever the netizens’ opinions are, no one thinks it’s okay for the woman to beat the driver like this. Maybe next time when she comes across someone with a bad attitude, she could try to hold back her anger and be more tolerant, because violence is never the answer.
