A cane for a cane

Posted on Mon, Jun 8, 2009 at 12:55 PM

Due to a recent injury, I've been hobbling around with crutches and/or a cane. This injury has required me to sit down on the bus and people have been very accomodating and kind, offering their seats without a second glance. I was feeling all warm and fuzzy until last week, when no one on the bus got up to give an elderly woman with a cane their seat. Since I'm aware, I got up (cane and all) to let this woman sit down. All around me, young and able bodied passengers sat, completely oblivious. Seriously, Halifax? I hobbled to the back of the bus, holding on tight to the bars on the bus in order to stop from falling. Open your eyes people and have some common sense, decency and put others first.
