Are You Gentleman To Give Your Sit Inside The Bus?
August 21, 2016 8:30am CST
Are you gentleman? In the Philippines we still have this customary that when you are inside the bus or in railway transit with full of passengers, you will lend your sit to a woman, pregnant, elderly or person with disabilities. Mostly, if you are a woman and happens to be in the thickly passenger vehicle ride, some of the boys will voluntarily give their sit to you. We have been like this until now. We call this being 'gentleman'. Though in some instances there are boys who will not do that but mostly you will feel the hospitality of the Filipino. No, they never consider the equality of the boys and the girls. This has nothing to do with our tradition of being hospitable.

I think there should be more of this. It's only good manners. I'm older and I have back issues BUT if I see someone get on the bus with a cane or infirm in any way, they will get my seat. It's the right thing to do, period.
