Re: People not offering their seat to elderly, injured or heavily pregnant ladies

As I observe it, most people commuting are tired, and are listening to music and/or reading, especially their phones. I don't think they're malicious or even meaning to be discourteous when they don't offer their seat to someone who needs in more: they are simply preoccupied with their own thoughts and don't necessarily notice what is going on around them.

However, as soon as the person who needs a seat politely asks for one, it is almost guaranteed that someone will gladly (and perhaps apologetically) stand up and let them sit down. I've never seen a polite, straightforward request (with no reproaches) fail to get the person a seat as needed.
