    Thank you for your reactie ScriptTease! Good to know it's not just an arrogant Amsterdam kind of thing.. Must say it is in a neighbourhood where the people think much of themselves, those typical kind of business(wo)men. Stopped trying to understand those people also.. Today I just sat down on the ground when I was too dizzy to stand. Maybe I should give up a piece of my pride to just ask if I may sit, but it's hard for me to talk to people I don't understand in the first place..

    First of all... That damn groundhog. Second, I thought this was just an American thing. Normally it's females giving up their seat for the elderly, and or another distressed female. Back in the Day on the Marta (Atlanta, GA) subway... It was packed, I was pregnant, and an old man stepped on board with a cane. I looked around to see if someone was going to be noble. Not one of those strapping young men, or mothers with lap babies taking up space got up to offer this man a seat. I was shaking my head, and just as I was about to stand, a young female got up with much attitude, and gave up her seat to the little old man. I just don't understand people sometimes.
