Stump of a Muffin

Ride 7

Does a man have to give up his seat to a woman?  Re-phrase:  does a young man have to give up his seat to an elder lady?  One more time:  does a teenage boy have to give up his seat to a very mature lady who’s having trouble standing upright during the bus ride?  I say ‘yes’ to all.  After today’s observations I’d say I’m in the minority.

I witnessed three women ride the bus while standing.  Each nearly suffered a fall.  Three, more than three, men sat and watched.  I know each of these men saw each of the ladies’ difficulties.

Finally a young lady offered her seat to the elderly lady.  The new standee put herself in peril as she was wearing heals – wobble, wobble.

Am I a heal for not calling out my fellow males?
