A Conversation for Modern Etiquette

On The Buses..

Post 41


Having my long hair grabbed by the person behind me on the bus was one of my pet hates when I was at school! smiley - laugh

A few years ago, when my daughter started secondary school and had to travel by bus, I informed her that she should always give up her seat to the elderly, pregnant women and those with young children. She obediently did this only to regularly remain un-thanked/ignored by those who took her place. smiley - cross

My daughter has asked me why people are so rude and ignorant and why she should bother to be polite... smiley - erm I've told her that she should continue to be polite and not sink to the same level as those who are rude and ignorant but somehow I don't feel this argument is strong enough...smiley - sigh

As for the insensitive morons who are rude enough to smoke on my daughter's bus, when it is clearly banned...smiley - bleep
