I travel the bus every morning to get to work and back again. There are all ages getting on and off the bus. When I see an elderly person I will immediately get up and offer/insist they sit down. It makes me feel good and at the same time I get frustrated at the kids who don't ever get up. It's always the adults who do it. Sometimes elderly people get annoyed at the young ones for having no respect for the elderly and refuse to stand up for them. Would you be one to tell a child to vacate his seat or would you just do it yourself? A wide person who gets on the bus usually takes up 1.5 seats. Should bus companies have a couple of 1.5 seats on their buses? Or should you make these people pay for a double seat since it's uncomfortable for anyone else to squeeze in next to them? It's not fair for the wide person to have to pay extra, but then again no one else can sit comfortably next to him/her. Why should another person have an uncomfortable ride?
