Courtesy Along with Chivalry is Dead

Dear Nimwits,

Do you remember me? No, well let me remind you. We where on the same crowded bus together and everyone was packed in like sardins. You both where sitting in the courtesy seats, you know the ones reserved for the elderly, disabled and people with children. I was the one standing with my baby strapped to my chest, ring any bells? We have an issue to discus. I saw you. I saw you look at me, look at my baby and pretend that you didn't see us. I am tiered of people like you, people who will not give up their seat to someone who really needs it. It makes me sad to see that young people like you have gotten so self involved that you cannot get off your ass and "suffer" standing for the remainder of your trip to allow for another person in need the opportunity to sit down. It is truly pathetic that society has devolved like this and you the next generation are allowing it to occur and get worst. Now I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, perhaps you don't know what courtesy is... here is the definition:

Courtesy, noun:
1. excellence of manners or social conduct; polite behaviour.
2. a courteous, respectful, or considerate act or expression.

Dosen't that sound nice? Courtesy should not be allowed to die, we need it and you girls along with everybody else need to keep it alive. So next time ladies, be a decent human being, get off your ass and offer your seat.



  1. I sooooooo would have demanded the seat. I have no problem making people feel guilty when they're doign something crappy like that. I've done it before and I would do it again. And if I was on the bus with you, i most certainly would have said something to those assholes, I assure you. I'm going to make it my personal mission to always make sure people who need the courtesy seat on the bus get the courtesy seat on the bus. Though my methods of doing so might not be so courteous. ;)

  2. I hate this. I totally agree with Jillian. When I bus with my mom I make teenagers move for her and I'm not nice about it.
