Do you give up your seat on the bus to others?

I was just discussing being polite it was mentioned about letting others have your seat on the bus. How many of you will give up your seat to a woman, man or anyone that needs it more than you? Will you do it every time no matter how hard your day has been? I personally do not remember a time that I ignored anyone that needed a seat.

I would definitely give up my seat to anyone who really needed it. I feel it's just the right thing to do.

Yeah even though I was a bad little bugger in my teen years I always had respect for those older than me. And of course if someone is standing there in need of a seat they don't have to be older than me. :) thanks for your words, always appreciated.

Yes I agree with you kellyp513 it is the right thing to do. No matter what give it to the one who needed it badly- the sit!

i don't usually do this. but whenever i see a person carrying a child and can't find a seat of his/her own, i gladly ask that person to let her child sit on my lap. sometimes, if the seat is too big for me, i let a woman standing up to share the small space with. i only stand up when a disable person or an elderly needs it.

Well at least you do more than just ignore people and that's a good thing. Thanks MaryAnneMax

Well, I am not very young now, but still if I see someone more older than me and who really needs to sit down, I do give my seat. I have at least one hour journey till I get down, so giving away a seat means standing for one hour, but still I will not mind giving it to someone who really needs it. It does not happen everyday...so sometimes you can make a bit of sacrifice, after all it will give you some peace in heart, even if it gives you some pain in legs.......lol

Wow that's a long time to stand. I never had to take more than a ten minute ride where I lived and it was never a problem. I am glad you still think of others though. :)

If they NEED in more than me, then yeah I will offer it to them. Like a pregnant lady, or a lady who has to hold her child..and older man or woman. But if they are just being lazy and don't want to stand, then sorry, not giving up my seat. If you look like you're in good health, you're not getting my seat.

That's the way to be. I don't give up my seat to those that don't need it any more than I do. Good for you.

if someone needs a seat they can have mine. I am fine with that. I just hope when I am old and grey people will still be as considerate as they are now.

I think we all have times that we are just too tired to move but as long as we can do it most times I think we will be forgiven. :) thanks

I would give up my seat to someone who needed it. Being a woman, I appreciate it when someone does it for me. I hate seeing an ederly person or a pregnant woman forced to stand because no one was willing to give up their seat for them. Giving up your seat is the polite thing to do.

That's no reason to not be polite and courtious yourself. Sometimes showing by example brings out the best in others because they are the way they are because of what life has dealt them, it doesn't mean you have to turn out like them. :)

Hey HappinessPiggy you are a person of few words. I see you are only just new here, so welcome aboard. Without trying to sound like I am picking on you I would suggest you use more words if you want to earn more on myLot. It's all about content and myLot pays for good content so even if you try to make a complete sentence you will earn more than a couple of words.

I happily give up my seat for people with kids or elderly people. I'm quite shocked when other people on the bus ignore them, it's terrible!

I guess a lot of people are just totally into themselves and others can just stand there. At least we are polite. :) thanks for your response.

Well, I honestly don't ride the bus, but there have been times, at a doctors office or such that I have willingly given up my seat. Usually for an older person (if they'll take it) or a pregant woman, or just a woman burdened down with children. (although I am usually carrying a couple myself) my hubby is always giving up his seat as well.

I was always taught that you'd better get out of that seat for anyone older than you!!! So yes, I'd give up my seat! I'm a pushover, I'd give up my seat for anyone! I always go out of my way to do what I can for anyone. Sometimes that get me in trouble but sometimes it pays off! I truly believe that what comes around, goes around. Do good deeds and you'll be rewarded! Even if I'm not, it still made me feel good to do it!
