Who has to stand up?

2018-Issue1_Featured-Myanmar_8.jpg

I would not give my seat to the man with children because the children look like they would be able to stand up themselves. However, the children could be ill and not able to stand. The man looks perfectly happy but I can only see that. Though I say this, I think that people should put their technology away and give up their seats for people that need one!

    Hi Earnest_grapefruit! Thanks for your post about what you've been looking at during session time. I think you've been really observant and at the same time you've acknowledged that you might be making assumptions based on what you can see, when people might actually have other needs that aren't visible. Well done! What assumptions might we make about the people who are sat down?
    PS. if you have an idea that is similar to another post that is already on the Hub, it would be great for you to write it as a comment rather than a new post. That way, we will have juicy discussions all in the same place on the same topic!

    Its a sad fact that quite often none of those people would get a seat because now a days passengers are sucked into their devices,books and news papers.No one looks at the world around us, that needs to change

    I understand why you think that earnest grapefruit
    The man with cruches could be really pained however he might be going to get his cast removed and he could easily hold on to a bar.
    The old lady could fall over on the floor and badly hurt herself however she has a walking stick and two legs to help her stand.
    The pregnant lady could fall over which could damage the baby inside before it is even born,however, it depends how pregnant she is because if she is only 1 day pregnant than she will eaisily be able to stand so she wont fall over ,it also depends how fast the train is going too.
    The man with two children looks like he would be able to stand and his kids both look like they can also stand but they might have walking disabilitys and that might be why their father is carying them.

      Well done for giving your reasons here adventurous_piano! I can see you have thought about the whole scenario. I'd like to know what your final decision is now that you've thought everything through!

    Thank you Olivia my final decision is that they all deserve the seat but I think the pregnant lady is most deserving and the man with the two kids is least deserving.

    I think the cool people should stand and the people that have problems should stand.

    I think that original people has stand up because the man handling 2 children cant stand and the man with a broken leg or the women with a walking stick and also the pregnant lady.
