Is Chivalry Really Dead?

Posted on Sun, Sep 19, 2010 at 7:36 PM

To all the new and old bus users of the number 18:

You should all learn to read the yellow triangle stickers on the bus windows that say "please yield seats to the elderly". I am so sick and tired of watching an elderly person slowly get on the bus and look around to see if there's an empty seat up at the front.

You six fucking pricks who sit there and look dumbly at each other while not moving really pisses me off. You should have some respect and get your asses up and free up a seat. For all you know, that could be your grandmother or grandfather. Wouldn't you like to know that some nice young person vacated their seat so they can sit down in comfort?

I don't want to generalize in saying that it's just young people, but taking the number 18 every day, I notice the same six or so students (and I know you're FIRST YEAR students) sitting there. Every day.

It doesn't hurt to get up and give your seat to someone who needs it. Didn't your parents teach you to be courteous? Well, this qualifies as being courteous. —My parents did a good job raising me :)
