I don’t mean standing up as in defending a woman’s honour, I mean standing up and giving them a seat on the bus. Sometimes I think it would be nice if someone (not just a man) would give up a seat on the bus. Is it sexist or old fashioned to think that a guy would give his seat to a woman? Why don’t young people respect their elders any more? Every morning and evening my bus is packed and I keep thinking, why don’t people give that older person a seat, or that person in the “less mobile passenger” area doesn’t look less mobile. Basically in Sydney it’s free for all. First in, best dressed, except that you don’t stand in a queue to get in first.
Even when I sit in the guard’s carriage, there are stinky, foul-mouthed crackheads.
