LRT and other means of public transport is now more useful than ever, thanks to the fuel price hike. And like most Malaysians these days, it doesn’t take much to piss me off. Every now and then, I take LRT to reach places that I need to go to avoid congestion ( sometimes, I’m just too lazy to drive if the place I need to go can be reached by LRT or busses)
One thing that pisses me off during a recent LRT ride is some youngsters attitude. What attitude, you ask me? Ohh, apart from having to endure some horny teens PDAs on the train, I also have to hold myself from slapping some bitches and bastards who are so selfish that they ignored the disabled, old or pregnant women’s need to sit down on the seat provided.
I’m aware that this is not new issue, but it pisses me off nevertheless. Here’s the story. I was on an LRT ride, it was crowded and I have somehow managed to get a seat. And so, I sat there until the next stop, where I saw an expecting mother whom I believe to be 6-7 months pregnant, and another child around the age of 5 is trailing after her. Conscience doused me with cold water and I stood up abruptly to offer her a seat. But unfortunately for her, before she can manage to sit down, there’s this bitch who conveniently ignored her physical state pushed her aside, not too gently and sat down on that seat.
What the fuck? The bitch is no older than I am, and I was furious. Pissed, I asked her to stand up so that the pregnant lady can sit down. But she refused to do so, claiming that she sat there first, and since I’ve given up the seat, I should shut up and stop bitching. Then that bitch continued to chat with a pathetic excuse of a boyfriend, who said nothing about her attitude. Wah, that bitch nearly earned my wrath. I really would like to slap her and throw her out of the LRT if I could!
Luckily for the bitch, some other thing managed to sooth me, which is a young kid, who seems to be in primary school. The boy stood up and called out to the pregnant woman, who is holding onto the bar beside his seat.
“Makcik, mari duduk sini…saya nak berdirilah…” he smiled at the pregnant lady as he gave up his seat for her and gratefully, the lady took the seat.
At that moment, I felt proud. At least someone has manners. I would have told the boy’s parents how pleased I am with their son if they were there. Seriously, some adult and young adults alike needs to learn from the young boy.
