Here’s a conundrum: offered my seat to an 80 year old auntie in the bus but she refused. Said she wanted to stand and exercise her legs. So I sat back down while she stood beside me. After a couple of stops she still didn’t get off. So i tried being more insistent this time. She smiled and said it’s really ok. Laid a gentle hand on my arm and told me to sit. she smiled.
Now, these are my thoughts:
A) be an a**hole and tell her to move away cos she is making me look bad.
B) be an a**hole and insist she sits cos she is making me look bad.
C) be an a**hole and vacate the seat. Make her feel guilty. We both will stand.
D) continue sitting and pretend to sleep so I don’t have to deal with stares from people. (I’m sitting at the seat facing the rear)
E) get off the bus and pretend that’s my stop.
Ah man, this is killing me !!!!!
