Evening @TPExpressTrains - 'Guy' on the seat opposite me is wearing stockings and a dress - what is that all about ?? 😳— Gary J Cocker (@Gaz_Cocks) August 4, 2016
Cocker wondered what that was "all about," to which TransPennine's customer response team responded:
@gaz_cocks Probably something to do with it being the 21st century now. As long as they have a ticket, everyone is welcome on our trains ^ZS— TPE Customer Assist (@TPEassist) August 4, 2016
"Probably something to do with it being the 21st century now." They added, "As long as they have a ticket, everyone is welcome on our trains."
Ouch, someone get Gary some Neosporin, 'cause he just got BURNED.
People immediately began tweeting their support for the company, and some included pictures of themselves to drive TransPennine's point home.
