A group of women with their feet resting on the seats of a Sydney train has drawn a sharp response on social media.
At least three women had their feet on the seats, when a fellow commuter took a photograph of the act from outside the train.
Two women had bare feet, while a third sitting next to a window had her shoes on.
The photo sparked outrage online when it was posted to Reddit with the caption: ‘Welcome to Sydney trains’.
‘Just dirt. Don’t do it. It’s unethical and poor social behaviour. There is no justification really,’ one social media wrote.
‘It’s not limited to race or nationality, peasants come in all variations,’ added another.
‘Your feet sweat more than most of your body, and there are bacteria and fungus there that you won’t get rid of just by trying to wash,’ wrote a third.
‘They emit an unpleasant odor, and that odor clings to what they touch.’
Other people took issue with the person who took the photograph in the first place.
‘Taking photos of people in public to post online just makes you a weird creep,’ wrote one.
‘Nothing creepy about photo post. More could learn from this the merrier. Public education. So many dirty people justifying this, low standards,’
Commuters who put their feet up on train seats face a fine of up to $1,100, according to Transport NSW.
Those who use offensive language or act inappropriately can invite a fine of up to $1100.
Similarly, blocking doors or interfering with equipment could attract a maximum penalty of $5500.
