Is it just me or does anyone else observe a seat hierarchy on the bus or skytrain?
Let me explain… when I get on the train after work there’s generally no seats to be had but within a stop or two some seats will open up. Generally when these seats open up people will point to it and ask others if they want it before sitting down. If someone older, with children or carrying a lot of bags is standing they’re given first rights to the seat.
I always feel like those who have been on the bus/train the longest should get first dibs on the seat and it aggravates me when people will kindly wait for others to get off before they make a move for the seat only to be thwarted by someone just getting on.
I then stew silently. It’s not like I need to sit, in fact I’ll stand a lot of the time because I’ve been sitting at work all day. It’s the principle. I feel like you can’t just waltz on and expect to sit down when others are waiting for that seat, most of who are just adhering to the rules of clearing the area before taking a seat.
So I beg of people, be kind and look around before you get on the bus and take a seat, someone else could be waiting for it.
Is it just me, or does anyone else find this rude and annoying?
