Ok this has been cheesing me off for a bit and I'm not writing about it because
1. I remembered (yeah alot of times I wanna write about something and I don't cause I'm like, "eh! what is that I wanted to write about again..?!".. So yes. Its a good thing I finally remembered.)
2. Its really really TOO MUCH and no one's speaking up!
Okay. *clears throat.* This one might get sticky. Please not that this is a generalization of my observations, not everyone I mention is like I state below.
How many times have you sat on a bus / MRT / in a queue, and someone old is standing? Do you give him / her your seat?
(My ans: all the time)
Why do we do that? Because we've bee taught to respect other people, right? To always have consideration, and THAT in my opinion is the basis of all good manners.
Well I am going to say this once and for all.
Old people have no manners.
SERIOUSLY. You guys know how often I use the bus. Well, if you don't, let me tell you I bus it quite often. Everytime without fail there will be at least one senior citizen and he/she will be doing one something purely obnoxious. Either there'll be a shopping bag on the perfectly good seat next to them, or they'll be sitting on 'outside' of the seat, causing no one to want to ask them to move in for the seat closer to the window.. and everyone standing around in the full bus is just staring, but too polite to ask them to be a little more considerate!
Seriously, why is it that rules of courtesy and consideration don't apply to older people?
Thank you everyone for your kind birthday wishes.
