Just my .02, take it for what it's worth, but I refuse to believe in this entitlement attitude that seems so pervasive....

Yeah, I know I got there first and that's the way it goes...so forth and so on...

But my mom would be the one tying me to the rope if I ever sat while someone had to stand like that...

Now, if you CAN'T stand---that's different...

Maybe it's just me...
At the end of the night I had this happen a few times, if a seat was open I'd tell me wife to sit, she has all the stuff from the days trip with her, while I stand holding my sleeping son in one arm (at the time 36 pounds of dead wieght) and holding on to the harness with the other, many guys sitting down just looking like they got a bet going to see if you can make it. My arm and back would be shot after the 15min ride. He is #1 to me and I'll do what I have to, but there are a lot of selfish people out there. I've given' up my seat many times to moms or older folks. Hopefully this will happen to the ones that won't give up the seat oneday and they can't do it! Kickin' soap box back to the corner.

If there is one thing I can do and do good is eat I was in Peoria, Illinois for a business trip one yr and we went to a steakhouse.They had this steak deal where if you eat the whole plate you get your meal free.Well I really didn't want to look like a pig,but after a little coaxing from the guys I was with I went for it.They give you 1 hr to eat the steak,full baked potato,thick piece of garlic toast,salad.The steak didnt fit the plate it overlapped it and they even had to cut a piece off and stack it on top.Well I put the whole meal down in 31 minutes,got my free meal ,tshirt and picture on the wall.After dinner we went to bar for a few drinks and I odered more food to go with the beer.Lets just say the rest of the trip I was known as many different names ( all related to eating).

Editors note my kids were not small either one was 5yrs old and one 3yrs

They should make the bus driver walk the bus before leaving to see if ieverything is SAFE and acceptible before departure!

Makes me laugh. This has always been a pet peeve of mine.If I am driving in my car with no seatbelt I can get a ticket.Yet buses can pack you in like sardines,standing room only,and law enforcement has no problem with this. If I crash in my car with no belt is one person getting hurt,if a bus crashes how many get hurt???? am I missing something???

This always gets my goat as well. I can't stand to see able bodied young men / men sitting while you see a family get on the bus and mom and dad are trying to balance a 5 yo and a 3 yo while standing, or an older couple fighting to hang on.

I see we are on the same wavelength, must be for the fact we both went to the Old School!

Amen to that! On our recent trip, my 11 year old kept offering his seat to any women, and even a few able bodied men. Definitely to the older generation. My 14 year old just refused to take a seat in the first place. Anytime I wasn't sitting with my DD, I too gave up my seat. I can certainly stand on a bus for 15-20 mins so that the moms & grandmas can have a seat... it really steams me to see so many selfish guys out there. Their moms are probably either ashamed at the way they've turned out, or just plain out of their mind for having not trained them all accordingly in the first place, but then I say their dads too. Common courtesy and chivalry seem to have flown out the windows.
