Really? He refused to give up his seat? The elderly always get first choice for seats on a crowded bus. That's just proper etiquette.

If you have ever been to Japan, you know that old Japanese women are the meanest, rudest people on the planet. Which is kinda shocking considering how polite and respectful the rest of the society is.

I've gotten an elbow in the ribs by a 4'3" wrinkled gremlin a few times.

Damn I'm sick of old people who think they deserve the subservience of everyone else just because they've managed to live a while.

Respect (beyond the simple decency that all humans owe each other) is earned and just being old is no sign that you've earned shiat.

Gah, this is one of my pet peeves. No, don't get up for me just because I am female. I'm healthy and reasonably young; I can stand. But Get. Your. Farking. Fat. Lazy. Ass. Out. Of. That. Seat. when it counts! I have watched hugely pregnant women, the extreme elderly, the blind, women (and men) with babies and toddlers, all standing, barely, on crowded city busses while able-bodied lazy people sit comfortably. Get up, you ignorant farks!

Not only that, but:

According to media reports, witnesses said Masuta got into a bus and found the student, 18, occupying one of two seats designated for senior citizens.


The seat was reserved for senior citizens.

Generally, I don't know whom I hate more, old people or teenagers, but I'm going to have to (metaphorically) get behind the grandma on this case.

If he was in a senior seat & wouldn't move, more power to her.
 
2010-07-11 08:05:48 PM  
Sounds like she should go out for a beer with my FIL.

He's headed into NY to Yonkers raceway from jersey and he had to take a bus, then a subway or two and then another bus. He's in the middle of NYC and he starts to wobble. (He's a diabetic and he's had a stroke and his balance is for shiat. He has often weeble-wobbled so bad that cops have stopped him thinking public drunkeness. he also has weak legs as well due to the stroke and it's hard for him to stand for extended periods of time.)

So he's on the subway, it's crowded and he's standing and he realizes he's not gonna make the rest of thr trip if he;'s standing. There's a seat labeled "please give up this seat to the elderly or handicapped" and he asks the young guy (college age if I remember correctly) to let him have the seat and he explains he had a stroke, has bad balance, etc etc. The guy doesn't say a word back except to laugh.

Wrong answer.

My FIL is 60 years old and may be disabled but he has no issue with getting physical with anyone. He grabs the kid by his hair and literally throws the kid on the floor and tells him he needs to know a thing or two about respect for the elderly. The kid protests and screams back so he tells the kid "You think so? Get up and fight me and then you can tell all your friends how you got your ass kicked by a disabled 60 year old man you &@&*)@#&( punk!"

//cool story bro and all that
 
2010-07-11 08:05:52 PM  
I say good for her. The kid should have been raised with enough common decency to give up a seat in the seniors section of the bus w/o having to be asked. Instead of charging Granny they should give the kid a "verbal warning" by telling him not to be such a spoiled, inconsiderate brat.

I don't condone assaulting someone for a seat on the bus, but honestly a broken nose is only a minor injury and it adds character in the end. Furthermore, I think that there are plenty of people that need this kind of motivation in life to stop being so douchey...

Seriously, how many of you farkers wanted to do this exact same thing to someone for something similar, but you just didn't have the balls.

Oh, and to the women who get all feministic (its a word dammit!) when guys offer a seat to you - get over it - it's supposed to be taken as a sign of respect and a compliment in our own feeble way. It's really one of the greatest things us type-B people can do by showing you that you are important enough to us, even as total strangers, that we want to make sure that you are comfortable...

I agree. Also, if your first car ran off of sugar cubes and carrots, you might want to stay in a nursing home. Quit putting other drivers at risk of injury. Quit driving if you can't see over the wheel, grandma!

A friend of my mother called crying because she was on a city bus and had a broken arm and not only was she not offered a seat but not even a space where she could hold on to something. She is very coordinated so she moved with the motion of the bus and grabbed anything with her good hand when she could. She didn't get hurt except her feelings. She couldn't believe people could be so cruel.

Young people who refuse to give injured, elderly and children a seat should rot in Hell.

In Japan there is no expectation that men give up seats on public transportation for women/elderly etc like there is in the US. That said, since the kid was sitting in a seat specifically designated for the elderly, good on you Grandma.
 
2010-07-11 08:22:13 PM  
After reading the comments, I decided to put in my $0.02. I've lived in Florida all my life, and have never had the need to use mass transit here. My parents always drove me around until I eventually got a car and started driving myself. I have never ever lived in the big city.

A couple of years ago I went to New York City for the first time and hopped onto the subway train. It was a new experience - it was crowded, hot and difficult for a newbie like myself to maintain his balance. I sat down at one of the seats soon as they opened up. Two stops later, an elderly Asian woman came in, scanned the car for open seats. Able-bodied people would look at her, then look away. It made me sick - it defied common sense. I waved at the lady, she smiled and came up to me and I happily relinquished my seat for her.

There is absolutely no reason for an able bodied person to not give up a seat for someone who needs it. None. Even this small town boy knew that.

You think feministas are bad... you should see some oldschool gentlemen if a woman offers up her seat for them. One poor guy was on crutches with a big ole knee brace, and I suggested he take my seat. You would have thought I'd insulted his... Well, he was offended, anyway.

The rule in the west is usually be polite to women, holding the door open, allowing them to step out of elevator's first, etc. In Japan its the elderly.

the little bastard had it coming to him. I can't tell you how many times i surprise the frak out of Old Japanese people when I (a crazy looking bearded white man) get out of my seat and tell them to sit down.

I also give a dirty look to the other japanese people on the train/bus while i do it.

Also, this kid was probably a blond mullet having Yankee punk who needed a good slap in the face

it doesn't help that it can be boring on a train/bus in japan, gotta entertain myself somehow. That and sometimes the old people give you presents if you do it

Jaws_Victim: The rule in the west is usually be polite to women, holding the door open, allowing them to step out of elevators first, etc. In Japan its the elderly.

This irritates my (nonexistent) nuts off. I get on the elevator near the top of the building. By the time we've reached the lobby, there are a half-dozen people between me and the door.

There are trips where every guy in the car just stands there when the doors open, looking slightly confused, apparently expecting me to thread my way through them in order to exit first.

>.<

People nearest the doors exit first. Please. Get the hell out of my way so I can get out without needing to wiggle past people who are politely waiting for me.

For people who don't think women deserve special treatment these days, a really good reason for us wanting seats on the bus is because its really hard to stand in heals with all the stops and turns. Plus, our feet hurt.

I always thank gentlemen who act like such.
