This post is to mean no offence to people who have mental illnesses.
Crazy is a word used to describe people who are not sane, however some people agree it is used wrong. Yes. It is. However, without using this word, you wouldn't be able to simply understand what I am talking about without a big explanation.
Everyone has had this experience (and if you didn't please let me move to the country/city you live in)
You are on a train (usually this happens on a train/bus) and suddenly someone starts talking to themselves, or screaming at the door. Theres nothing you can do but just sit there and mind your own business. After all we are all human, and not every human is....all there in the brain.
Nothing is wrong with these people, but it can be scary for those riding on the train.
This story is inspired by events that happened today.
I was riding random popular train line here in Tokyo. A man walks on the train and stands by the door. I am sitting down. The man starts making noises which I can only describe as ...haunting ghost grudge sounds? at the door. Which I thought was kind of strange, but I thought at first he was listening to music and singing some heavy metal song quietly.
But my thoughts were wrong, his voices got louder and I realised he was not listening to music that he was just...different from other people.
No hate. No issue. A little strange, but its all good. Continuing my ride sitting down and enjoy watching the train pass stations and thinking about all kinds of things.
He punched the door.
This is the moment where my calm self turned into FKING SCARED! heart beating fast, palms began to sweat. Occasionally a crazy person freaks out in public, I am sure I am not alone, I am not the only one who gets scared. I hate when this happens. It is so scary.
He kicks the door. And then punches it again.
At this point in time I was so scared I thought he was going to kill me. I was so scared he was going to punch me. He was very tall and large he could have broke me in half.
BAM. BAM. BAM. He beats the door and kicks it. He walks in circles and does the same thing again. People looked, but nobody moved. One person standing near him walked away. The guy who was kicking the door looked at the guy who walked away like he was going to kill him. And actually started to walk in his direction but then I guess gave up and turned back and punched the door again.
I have no idea what this persons story is. But all I know is I was scared and I hate when this happens.
The train stopped and I got up and walked all the way to the other end of the trains doors as fast as I can to get off and as soon as I got off quickly took off hoping he didn't pick me to punch instead of that door.
I wonder what the likeliness of a person who is punching the door, to actually come after a random person who is sitting down on the train?
