Kayak4651 Your words speak for themselves. Very typical of a selfish, inconsiderate generation who have forgotten everything , lacking the the etiquette and upbringing so needed to make this a nicer , friendlier, loving world. It starts with you Kayak4651 … try smiling and saying something nice today … it will cost you nothing but will mean everything to the person you’re addressing.
still you’re mising the point here innumber six rule of not including the disabled persons, I think the person who wrote this piece does not have an inkling of how hobbling stroke suvivors inches their way to the door trying as they mightily could to muster the strength to recovery on one good leg.
as for number three about moving in when on the aisle seat, can you makeroom, and include for the disabled persons as well, the elderly and pregnant women should and must be accorded their right place and comfort but we the disadvantage lot suffering from disability needs some respite as well, the other day I took to standing in the bus for an hours travel the man seated on the isle would not stand to help me out he told me he could not stand because he was sitting beside a pregnant woman whom I later learned as never known to him or his companion,I’m not complaining the experience made me stronger, on one leg that is.
It’s an inspiring rules for riding public. Most, I’ve observed seldom follow these simple rules especially in PUVs, and trains.
And what’s wrong with etiquette rules from the 1940s? Idealistic yes, but we’d all be a lot more comfortable and a LOT less stressed. But if ten is too many for you to remember, there’s just one rule—if you wouldn’t want someone to do it to you, don’t do it to someone else!!!
