A possibly drunk and definitely creepy man insults a woman’s body on the train, then suggests she read a book on prayer and healing. The woman is having none of it.
Train travel can be an extremely affordable and practical way to travel. Whether it’s a daily commute or a long vacation, the train is perhaps one of the underappreciated forms of modern transportation. However, millions of people still use trains to get to and from their destinations every day. And just like air travel which has seen more than its share of cuckoo customers the last few years, train travel has its own special brand of wackos and weirdos (don’t even get us started on bus travel).
In a video shared on TikTok, @katiegarroyo records a creepy incident between her and a fellow male passenger on a train. The video picks up with a man that is slightly slurring his words – perhaps a clue that he might be drunk – insulting Katie.
As he demeans her body, he holds up a piece of Christian literature. She politely declines and later comments that the Christian stuff really seems to be working for him. His irritation is apparent and he continues to demean her with salty and rude language but Katie holds her own, seemingly unfazed by the interaction.

It’s a sad state of affairs that anyone – man or woman – has to endure this kind of treatment. Doing so under the guise of the Christian faith will irritate people on all sides and those of the Christian faith will remind us that this is not Christ-like behavior and certainly not an accurate reflection of the true Christian. Others might suggest, however, that it might actually be an accurate reflection of far too many radical Christians. We will stay out of that debate, thank you very much.
How about you, dear reader? Have you ever experienced an interaction with someone proselytizing who when rebuffed, got angry and started insulting you? Drop us a comment below.

I used to see it nearly every day riding MARTA (Atlanta’s public transportation).
