An Incident on the Bus
Jack scrambled up the bus. He pushed his way inside and found a seat near the exit. The bus was slowly filling up. Jack was glad that he had found a seat.
Just then, an elderly lady hobbled down the aisle. Jack got up and waved his hand to get the old lady’s attention. Then, he walked towards her to help her to his seat. However, before he could get her to the seat, a teenager sat down without saying anything. Jack was shocked and immediately told the teenager to get off the seat. However, he ignored him. He closed his eyes and leant back in the seat.
By then, several other commuters noticed what had happened. A lady scolded the teenager for being inconsiderate. Another man told the teenager that he should be ashamed of himself. Even a young girl scolded the teenager for being selfish. The teenager was furious. He yelled at everyone to leave him alone. He refused to get out of his seat.
Fortunately, someone else gave up her seat to the old lady. Everyone on the bus was shocked by the teenager’s behaviour. Some continued to scold him loudly. He was so annoyed that he eventually got off the bus even before he reached his stop.
