I travel the bus daily back and forth to work, I have been watching for quite sometime now, how often the young ladies, anywhere I'd say from 18 to 30 years of age, are getting up and giving their seats to other patrons who really need to sit. It is obvious that the young ladies are giving up their seats way more often than the young men, not to say that there's not still a few good men out there who do, as there is at least one or two on my route that will give up their seats also, but the ratio of women to men is amazingly in the favour of the women. I think these ladies need to know that their efforts are recognized and appreciated and to be encouraged to keep up the good work. Way to go ladies!!!
Now the only other thing we need to work on are people with headphones on with music so loud everyone can hear it and to me there's nothing worse than listening to music that filtered through someone else's brain! —S.M.
