At the grand age of 26 I am already getting significant back, hip and knee problems. But nobody can see that, to the outside world I'm a healthy looking young man.
Get a car then.

You are at on a jam-packed bus during rush hour and your journal is going to take an hour to get to the final destination...

A frail old lady and a teenager wearing a leg cast and crutches both get onto the bus at the same time.

Assume no one else is polite enough to give up their seat so there's no way of them both getting to sit down.

Who would you give up your bus seat to?
the teenager as they should in theory live for longer

No point when I can use public transport which is cheaper and far better for the environment.

The old lady without a doubt
Why?
(Original post by Tracey1995)
Certainly must be a old lady who can hardly walk or someone who is disabled
most old people can walk.

Only if they're dying or can barely walk or a rancid homeless or pregnant. Or those motorised wheelchairs lol then I have no choice.


Anyone else will have to ask and I still might say no depending on my mood I hate when they silently hover over like I'll bounce up for them. I don't try to feel like a good person on a bloody bus...

True but it doesn't seem good for your health

Public transport doesn't make my health worse, I'm going to be in pain regardless of the transport solution.

Stay seated and avoid eye contact to avoid any form of social interaction and judgemental looks and tuts.

I have a car but I only use it for long distances and nights out and when I'm running late to work. For errands and most work days, I take public transport.

The old lady she’s frail, weak and old so obviously her the teenagers strong and healthy it’s only one leg he can use the other one to stand if worse come to worse he’ll just sit on the floor
how so you know that the teen doesn't have an ongoing disability? plus the teen has a higher potential of being able to work, contribute to the economy and live longer the old lady's time is probably up... i'm afraid

How do you determine who is disabled or not? That’s the issue.

And how so do you know if the teen has a outgoing disability ? exactly you don’t 🤷*♂️ Lmfao smh plus if he did have a outgoing disability that obviously would’ve being clarified beforehand but clearly wasn’t 🤷*♂️ We’re only talking about him having having crunches nothing else so that’s irrelevant And how do you know the teen has a higher potential to contribute to the economy? Exactly you don’t Period

Old lady

Crutches aren't that bad - the teen can lean on something and/or ask to put their leg up on something to take the pressure off it

Some people are underestimating that some old people are badass as hell.

That being said, I'd probably say the old lady too. Couldn't tell you why other than my moral instincts are telling me that it's more appropriate.
