Ok I am not talking about the guy who's going to open the door for you, call you ma'am or the guy who stands up during dinner when you have to go and use the restroom. I am just simply talking about the guy who would give up his seat to an old woman or man or to a pregnant lady! Today, I took the bus for some reason, it was jampacked because it was rush hour. To cut the story short, there I was standing inside, in the middle, very pregnant (almost 8 months) waiting for a kind hearted "guy" soul to give up his seat. I was willing to stand up only if I wasn't really stressed out and dead tired. But hell no! The bus was almost filled with guys ranging from 18 to I don't know maybe 30s and nobody even dared to stand up! There was actually an old lady who willingly gave up her seat for me. I hesitated but then she insisted telling me that she knows how difficult it was for me and that she's gonna go down soon. The very sad thing is that the one seated beside her was a guy...and she had to actually pass through him and hell he didn't even tell the kind lady to just stay there and he'll give up his seat. Because of this, I had a flashback way back in college. I took the train when I noticed that there was an old guy standing in the middle with everybody else. Then I looked around, the guys seated didn't even bother...they pretended that they didn't see him! I just stood up and gave up my sit with disgust. Have you guys encountered this? As for the guys who are now guilty as they read this, please, next time, it won't really hurt you to exercise those leg muscles once in awhile!

My friend, we have to accept the fact that most of the people taking the public transportations are illiterate. They do not know how to be a true gentlemen. They only think about themselves. I rarely ride in public transportation and have no experience whatsoever of what you're mentioning. But I know it is happening everywhere.
