Good kids and people

I probably spent over one and half hours today on public transport. Seven different trams actually. School holidays are not a great time to be out and about. Trams were crowded no matter where I went.

I saw a grandmother pull her grand children off a seat and squeeze them onto her lap so that an elderly woman could sit. She apologized for bumping me a bit.

I saw three different teens offer their seats to older people, along with a couple of adults who did the same.

I saw other people helping strangers in various ways.

Perhaps the lovely warm day put folk in good moods or perhaps the human race is basically good.


  1. Sometimes it is different - one can see several elderly people racing towards one free seat and then loudly arguing who should sit there...

  2. Yes, I have seen that too. Very amusing to watch.
