Touched by a young lady's actionMy husband and I stepped into the shuttle that was to transport us to the airport terminal. As I reached up to grab the bus handle, a young woman, in her early twenties, got up and gave me her seat. I refused, but she insisted that I sit in the seat that she had vacated for me.
We often have people complaining that women want men to vacate seats reserved for them, but they never vacate a seat for another woman. This post is to refute such claims, even if it is an isolated occurrence, it needs a mention.
At the terminus, I halted and chatted with this young lady and told her that her act will perhaps inspire others to do the same. Her little action touched me. I'd like to add here that I am not infirm and was quite capable of standing. She saw the grey in my hair and respected my age. I hope there are more people like her and that more people learn to be good humans.
