So you're on the LRT.
It isn't even rush hour but there aren't any seats available. Except one of those grey seats reserved for old people, handicapped people and pregnant women.
You take the seat anyway, because you can always get up when someone who needs it comes along. And because there is a hot babe next to the empty seat.
At the next stop, an old lady walks in with her grandson who is not a day under 12 years old. Hot babe immediately gets up and gives the old lady her seat. No worries, you think, the next needy one gets my seat.
Except that instead of taking the seat, the old lady gives it to her grandson. But instead of doing the right thing, the fucking brat takes the seat, leaving his old grandmother to stand.
So now you are faced with an ethical dilemma. A quick glace at hot babe sees her pretty face squirming with anger, which validates my dilemma since I am not the only one in two minds about this.
Should I get up and give the old lady her seat which I would gladly do in any other situation? Or should I let her stand because that fucking brat of her grandson should be the one standing, since hot babe gave HER the seat and not his young ass?
You tell me what you would do, and I tell you what I did.
A little off tangent, but the moral education in primary school was way better than the moral we had in secondary school.
Well, my stand: Stand up and bitch about the kid with the chick.
How about this fellas?
The old woman is obviously not about to collapse due to exhaustion otherwise she wouldn't give her seat to the brat. So how about leaving your fat ass on the seat and continue reading your book?
The more important thing to remember is: Did you get the chickoo's phone number?
