    Well I would let them have it out. The police usually do **** all so I wouldn't even waste my time. And I wouldn't intervene because it's nothing to do with me. Spit or shout at them? :confused:

    Depends. Police probably, or intervene if I think I can help & if one is clearly a victim.

    If they were bumping into me in the process I would get annoyed, and if I got annoyed I would put gum in their hair secretly

    Well I'd like to think that I would have the courage to get involved and try and break it up.

    It's a tricky situation though, and my response would depend on what I see, (2 people fighting, yes we know that, but are there weapons? is there a clear aggressor and victim? is the bus stationary? other people on board - do they look willing to step in or are they mates of one of the people fighting? is the driver aware?......) lot's of variables.....

    From speaking to people who have been in situations like this though, and watching CCTV footage of fights on buses/trains etc, although everyone likes to think we'd have the courage to get involved and help in a situation like this - it seems most people actually remain frozen in their seats with fear and do nothing for fear of being assaulted too.

    It often takes a lot of courage to get involved, 10/10 to anyone that acts.

    While I would like to say that I would help out (if it's an attack), I would probably move out of sight and call the cops.

    But seriously, who would spit on two people in a brawl. I can't think of anything stupider.

    I wouldn't care. I don't know them, so it's not my issue nor obligation to get involved.
