Even though it clearly states it on the sign on the bus, that the front seats are reserved for elderly,and disabled people. They are always taken up by those who are not, and when the bus is full and there are women getting on board, the right thing to do is let the women at least sit down. But that does not happen, in fact young boys and men just sit there while women and even some seniors have to stand, not even getting up to let them sit. Is Chilvelry dead? Is good manners and doing the right thing, just something that is or was an urban myth?
The other night me and my mom got on the bus, and it was full, now I dont mind standing up when need be, but there were young men sitting and they did not even offer to get up to let my mom sit, there was another young man there, who was talking to my mom, saying that it is a shame, that he couldn’t see sitting while ladies had to stand up. That he was of a different mind set, that he was taught better as well. I see it more and more, the inconsiderateness of the youth towards the older generation.
