It is polite to yield up your seat to the elderly whether on the bus or the subway. But will you offer your seats in such circumstances?

On the rush hour to or from work, you are either sleepy or tired. You are reluctant to give up your seats to anyone.

Some elderly think that they deserve the seat. If you give them the seats, they don't appreciate your kindness. But if you don't, they get angry and shout to humiliate you before the crowded passengers.

#1 A curious way of thinking this of yours......

seats should always be offered for the elderly, physically impaired, pregnant women and/or people carrying babies. This should be this way even if not asked to.

I think it depends. I see a lot of elderly people go to the park at the rush hour every day for exercise. They compete with the young people to get on the bus. Some young people have to take the next bus in order to give space to the elderly. Sometimes they are late for work. Is it fair? I don't think so.

Yes, it is a good practice I  suggest the Chinese elderly to adopt.

I always offer my seat to elderly people. When I'm tired, it doesn't really matter if I'm sitting or standing 'cause during the rush hour, Ican't move either way I also don't mind if they don't thank me - I mean, when their legs are painful and they're troubled due to the high amount of people around them, they might have a bad mood - that doesn't mean I have to get a bad one^^
