I was on a train going to work when a load of Mom life got me feelin like Hei Hei shirt. This happens every day. Small kids take the train to school, some even as young as first graders in their huge, leather backpacks and uniforms, sometimes with a boater hat. They usually talk, giggle or just stand there until we reach their stop. One day I saw a boy, about 7 years old, push another boy out of the train door while we were on a long stop. The boy ran over to another door to get on only to be blocked by that same kid. I walked over as calmly as I could and asked him, What are you doing? He looked up at me surprised. I said simply, He has a ticket right? Or a pass? He has a right to ride this train just as much as you do.

Best Mom life got me feelin like Hei Hei shirt
The boy was so surprised that an adult, and a Mom life got me feelin like Hei Hei shirt, confronted him about doing something he knows he shouldn’t. Then I said, “Be nice.” He apologized and walked back to his friends. I tried not to make a big scene and I don’t know if I succeeded. I mean it was on a public train and everyone could see what this boy was doing. That fact that I was a lot bigger than him, didn’t berate him and gave him a reason as to why the boy could ride the train I hope played on his mind in these last couple of months. I have no idea if I have seen him since then, as a lot of kids ride the train. But he would easily notice me, that white guy sitting there amongst all those Japanese people at 7:00am.
