So you've managed to get the last seat on a very full bus, traveling to wherever it is someone like you would travel. The bus stops again and lets several more people on. At this point there are no empty seats and the newcomers all have to stand. Upon realizing this you feel a little hint of guilt (pretend you do, even if you don't) and decide an able-bodied individual like yourself (again, pretending here if necessary...) should give up their seat to one of these people. There are several people who have been left standing to choose from.

Who do you offer your seat to?
**** them it's my seat (I suck at pretending things)[/choice]
Parent with 2 toddlers:9 (28.1%)
Crazy attractive member of the opposite sex:3 (9.4%)
Elderly man:11 (34.4%)
10 year old wearing a knee brace:3 (9.4%)
Total:32

It's between the kid with the knee brace and the elderly man, depending on who looks to be in worse shape.

Gray haired, wrinkled, definitely aged, but seems to walk okay for himself, maybe a little unsteady. Not the type that limps onto the bus and looks like he'll fall down at any second.

Last option, considering that the buses in my area don't have enough room to play musical chairs once the bus is full.

Where's the "I was already standing" option? I've never been on a bus that had empty seats.

I went with the parent because they're already in **** with the two midgets. The old man isn't going to die any slower, the kid probably did it to theirselves, and I'm not getting a blown for standing so they can all stand for all I care.

Yeah, scratch the kid....pedo is a no-no.

You might have better success with the old man as the mom would be sorely distracted.

I'm pretty sure that's how the Japanese subway system works if all the anime I've watched is to be believed. Although they don't need to sit.

What you need is space management. Allow the old man to sit, have the mom sit on his lap, stack the 10-year old and toddler on top. This should create enough floor space for you and the hot chick to lie down and have sticky bus floor sex.

You must have missed the "Crazy attractive member of the opposite sex" option in the poll.

No but my version of a crazy attractive person would be standing very well (luv me good strong knees) so there'd be no reason to offer them a seat.

Don't they disappear if you stack them sufficiently close?

Ironically enough that's the situation that prompted this thread. There's an all girls private high school and a university along my bus line, so there's regularly a good number of fairly attractive young women on the bus. The other day (seen this kind of thing a couple of times over the years) this guy (late 30s, early 40s aged) waits until an old lady had hobbled past him and offered his seat to this young gal in her early 20s, who promptly thanked him and sat down. I was standing a ways back quietly giving the guy a "what the hell?!" look (not that he noticed of course).

Thankfully someone else also took note later and offered the elderly lady a seat so all ended well, but still. Smiley: rolleyes

I don't offer it to anyone. That would require actually talking to someone on a bus. I just stand up and let them have it out.

And what's funny (I almost said ironic but it's not irony) is that giving the 20something babe his seat is not going to get the guy a bj, a lay or even date.

Also, old people don't 'generally 'text' so they don't really need to sit down.

Not that any 39 year old dude is getting nailed by a 20 year old over bus seat assignments anyway, but I'd like to think a young lady would be more impressed by giving up a seat for Baba Yaga than by giving it to her.

Maybe not. I blame the iPods and Twitters and Beyonces.

Since I have a nice ID card that says I'm disable, I don't have to get up for anyone else. Best offer me your seat or I'm likely to fall down on top of you, if the bus stops suddenly.

There's no option for "What the **** am I doing on public transit?".

Seriously though, in the rare case I am on a busy bus, I'll stand up and give my seat to anyone who looks like they need one. Elderly, handicapped, the lady with her arms full of grocery bags, etc. Maybe it's a generational thing, but it shouldn't really even require much thought to do this.

Ha! That's funny. I managed to fall into five other people on the train the other day. Like, a real bowling-ball-into-pins brake-induced smash. Normally I get a seat, but the carriage was so packed no-one could see my cane.

Also, I could see Victoria Edgar dripping down your bosom.

The poll doesn't take into account people who live in hamlets whose entire population could fit comfortably in a single bus.

One day, on the green line, an old lady with a cane got on and when the 25ish year old guy sitting in the "please let the elderly and disabled sit here" seat was too busy looking at his phone to notice or care, I stood up and loudly offered her my seat. I was nine months pregnant and she looked aghast but took it. Then these two guys started yelling at the kid and like five other people that were sitting there about how they were all that was wrong with the world and so on and so forth and the kid got off the train. They made a big show of making sure I sat in the seat and while I was appreciative, I also kinda wanted to pretend to go into labor and tell them it was all the shouting.

I think your poll was a bit gender biased. I think that if I jumped up and offered my seat to a "crazy attractive member of the opposite sex", they'd think I was a loon. Also, why do you hate the gays?

I knew another guy who was a **** hustler when he was 18. He also had a car, but referred to it as "my office." Is that the normal terminology?

Unfortunately I was never able to come up with an analogous situation for the ladies, so I just replaced "female" with "member of the opposite sex" and hoped for the best. On the plus side I should have an excellent future as a video game designer.
