I hope mod is Willing to allow me to express my anger and unhappiness.

Earlier I was on the MRT on my heading to Punggol, during the journey, there was some elderly who boarded in Hougang MRT. So I was leaning on the side of another door of the MRT, so I approached the young teen chap seating on the reserve seat,if he can at least try to ask the uncle in his 70’s if he wants the seat. Guess what happen? He was so defensive and refusing to ask the uncle and instead ask me why don’t I approach the opposite commuter the same. I was fuming like mad. Are these parents of such kids didn’t teach them what’s humility?????

he won’t budge and continue to use his fruit phone with AirPods Pro watching the movie till he left at Sengkang.

I have been asking myself, what can really do to make a difference?

The person with the seat should be asking. Of course if I ask the uncle won’t want.

I asked before.

Later the uncle said want, but all same pattern as the kid / elderly / pregnant / injured leh? Common for those not on reserved seat to act like it's not their business.

The best is to myob
That’s how our society behave isn’t it? Kindles and humility is what should be heading.

I know it sounds cliche, but in honesty. It least you try to ask, no uncle want then seat lor. Simple

U are well brought up but not everyone behave like u! It's not that the young guy was asking the old guy to give up his seat so just leave it as it was..just saying!

Instead of asking the teen, I will ask the uncle loudly, “Uncle you want to sit?”

if yes then can ask ppl to gib up lor. Maybe got someone else offer.

EDMWer will refise to give up seat also, esp to auntie.

Imagine will first scold WC, then say neber serve NS, then scold boomer gen. :s22:
