An old woman gets on to the bus, she is obviously strong... but she is old, old and bent; standing clearly requires some effort on her part. She gets on the bus looks around and hold onto the railing.
NOBODY moves... NOOOO BODY!!!
Eventually someone gets off the bus and the old woman (mainly because she happened to be standing in the right place) is able to beat the mad rush for the now vacant seat. She sits down.
Two stops later the most pregnant woman I have ever seen in my life gets on the bus (She was PREGNANT she looked like if the bus hit a pothole she would burst and drown us in a sea of babies. PPRREEGGNNAANNTT!!!!)
NOBODY moves... NOOOO BODY... that is until the old lady (The bent one who only just got a seat) gets up and gives the pregnant woman her seat!
Standing in the back of the bus I found myself arbitrarily (apropos of nothing?) wondering why I find it so hard to take some people seriously when they complain about the selfishness of the society or the greed of our politicians!
