I was on a very crowded bus and an old woman with a walker gets on.
All the other passengers proceed to file on and take up the remaining standing places but she stands close to me, staring me in the eyes.
After 5 minutes of this, I kindly ask, ‘may I help you?’
She replies, “yes, I have been waiting here for 5 minutes now and you have not offered to give me your seat “
Can you give me a good reason why I should?”
I can give you 5. I am an old woman of 86, I have near paralysis in my left leg, a hip that has been replaced twice, my husband died 3 days ago and every second I stand up is pure agony. Can you give me as many reasons why you deserve the seat more?”
