Get up, stand up...

Nope not an indignados post. More of a transport related rant.

One thing I don't understand about Madrid is people’s (read Madrileños’s) unwillingness to give up their seats to elderly people or pregnant women. I’ve often been the only one on the bus or metro to offer my seat up and it surprises me that no one, not even the men, seems to think anything of it. Not cool folks, not cool. Granted the percentage of the population over the age of 65 is like 20% (note: this is a made up statistic but genuinely is around the 15 – 20% mark) so if you offer a seat up to every one who deserves it you’ll never sit down but that’s how it should be so cop on.

Ok, rant over :)
