Who gets your seat?

2018-Issue1_Featured-Myanmar_7.jpg

We would give our seat to the elderly lady. If she falls, an injury could be really hard for her to recover from - fatal even. She has a walking stick, so she might be quite stiff and it might be hard for her to balance. She might have arthritis. However, we also felt that all of the people sitting on the seat should give their seats up, and stop paying so much attention to their phones that they can't see who needs help!

    Hi honorable_penguin,

    Great to see you on the Hub. You're talking about a task BNC students are doing in their first BNC session this year where you have to decide who you would give up a seat for.

    You've thought about the consequences for the elderly lady of having to stand up for so long and we really like how you've thought about the other people sitting down to.

    Amazing_blackcurrant has also written about this task here:

    Can you go to their post and explain to them why you disagree with them?

    We would give our seat to the man with crutches because he would struggle like the old lady. If he fell over then he could hurt his leg very badly. The old lady doesn't need it as much because she could hold on to something else. Despite this we agree that everyone who needs a seat should get one and more people should give up their seats.

    Earnest grapefruit I disagree because the old lady isn't that strong and could easily let go . If she let go she would fall down and potentially get hurt . I do agree that everyone who needs a seat should get one .

    I will give up my seat for the old lady, the man with the broke leg and
    the pregnant women and the people who are sitting down get up because they are capable of having stronger legs to stand.The old women should sit down because she might have an accident by falling back the pregnant women because you don't know how heavily pregnant she is and the man with the broken leg because it could get crowded and someone can accidentally hit it or stood on it
