If you're sitting on a crowded tram and a young man with a broken arm gets on, do you offer him your seat?
I have decided to set some criteria for this:
You should offer your seat to a young man with a broken arm when:
- He has lots of bags or 1 heavy bag. Having bags is awkward when you can use only one arm.
- He is having trouble balancing.
- He is giving you evil eyes and using mind powers to make you give him your seat.
PHLEGM clogging up the nostrils, throats & lungs plagued my fellow public transportians.
One man who was sitting on the seat to my right across the passage had it the worst. This man had holes in his jumper and his shoes were all worn out, but he did not smell homeless so...?
Anyway, his lungs were a phlegmy mess. He had an inhaler which he would deeply suck in, then he would splutter and cough and phlegm-about (new verb?) all over himself. He was an older guy, but not really old. I think he looked older than he was.
From the moment he sat down across from me, he stared at me. The really rude uncomfortable stare. Like he's looking at me and he is not going to look away. He just continued to stare at me. Thankfully the tram became more crowded and his stare was broken by people filling up the passage between us.
