A Good Example Of A Bad Example

| Friendly | June 30, 2015

(While getting on the bus, two elderly but fit ladies push themselves through while commenting on today’s youth not giving way and how things were different when they were young. Still commenting, they push an elderly and disabled lady aside to take the seat she was heading for. Luckily, one of those “ill mannered” youth gave up her place.)

Me: “I know what is wrong with the youth of today.”

Old Lady: *seeing I’m younger although no longer on of the ‘youth’* “Oh, yes?”

Me: “Yes. In my time, my grandparents taught me about respect by example.”

(The old lady huffed and puffed but the disabled one that was pushed aside earlier snickered and smiled at me.)
