The person I helped was an old lady. It was Monday morning. I took the bus to work as usual. Fortunately enough, I found a seat among the crowd who flooded into the bus once the door opened. You can imagine how difficult it was during peak hours in Beijing.
After two stops, there climbed in an old lady at her 60s. She looked around and became disappointed finding that there was no seat available. She made a few steps forward and came to stand right beside me. This left me in a moral dilemma. On one hand, traditional Chinese culture required me to stand up and give my seat to her. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. On the other hand, my reason said no, because if I did, I would have to stand the whole journey and that would be suffering.
Eventually my conscience prevailed over my reason and I decided to show courtesy. But to my surprise, at the moment I intended to stand up and even before my butt left the seat, the old lady pulled me out and sat down. She looked like she deserved the seat and how dare me to sit for a few seconds after she stood beside. I never got my ‘thank you’ and could not feel my legs when I got off. Therefore, rather than feeling happy or a sense of achievement, I felt frustrated and decided I would never give my seat away again.
