What has happened to manners in this city?
I took the subway to work one snowy day last week. Now I remember why I never take the TTC.
Not only do men or young people not give up their seats to older women, they run you down trying to get to the seat first. You start to get grumpy yourself and vow never to let it happen again. Then you get assertive, and aggressive. Before you know it, you’re trampling people underfoot yourself. I’m starting to understand the origins of road rage.
Please, everyone, show some kindness. Some class. Some elegance.
One family even pulled their kid right in front of me so they got a seat that was becoming vacant instead of me. Good Lord! What message does that send youngsters?
