YorkU Prof Threatens Student on TTC


So there I was packed like a sardine on the 196 Express bus to YorkU this morning and a 50ish lady pushed and shoved her way in an already packed bus at Downsview Station. The student standing beside me got very agitated half way through the ride because that older sardine started to use her as a leaning wall while she read her paper. The student asked the older lady if she could refrain from leaning on her as she was pushing her into other people.

The older one lost it almost yelling, “I waited in line to get on this bus I have a right to be here! Your generation is so rude and you all have no respect for your peers. Do you know who I am? I am a professor and if you were my student there would be serious repercussions for the way you are treating me!”

The student replied, “Listen Doc, outside the lecture hall you are just like everyone else. I don’t really care who you are and what you do. You are leaning up on me and I asked you to stop. I don’t think you need a PHD to figure that one out. Have a nice day!”
