Call me old-fashioned, but I rather enjoy when a gentleman gives up his seat for me on public transport. Not because I appear to be too old or with child, but because it's a courteous gesture. This happens from time to time, and I really do appreciate it.
Sadly, more often than not, I find myself standing during busy times and observing the most outrageous behaviour on public transport. I often see the seats labeled as "priority" with derrières in them that don't look very "priority" to me; instead, these culprits who are very comfortably seated have their heads down or they are staring aimlessly with zero regard of persons who they should be offering their seats to.
