Incident on a bus

A few weeks ago, I was taking a bus home, bus no. 53 if I remembered correctly. It was the rushing hour and the bus was super crowded. I stood at the end of the bus.

Then this old lady came up at the next stop. She staggered and walked slowly but nobody gave up any seat for her. At this point, the bus driver stood up and walked over to a young lady (about 20 years old) sitting on the green seat.

"Please give up your seat to the old lady."

The young woman was on the phone and she was stunned that the bus driver actually approached her but she can't possibly refuse right. so she reluctantly lifted her butt off the chair and walked towards the back of the bus. The old auntie sat down.

The woman was embarrased but then she pretended nothing has happened.

After that, another passenger sitting in front of her alighted the bus. Finally, she got a seat back! hahaha.. so funny. Then she happily sat down, still chatting on the phone.

I think it was good of the driver to tell the girl. Maybe the girl was too engrossed in her gossiping to notice the old lady.
