    How sick? Do the person know or can see that the person is sick?

    I'm not gonna get into an endless argument with u.
    Just wanna have my say, that being a public transport everyone should have same right to sit, whether ur young or old. A truly gracious society dont need signages to tell them to give up seats or reserve seats for anyone. If the person has heart, no need sign will also give seats to them.

    Sure. I agree with you. "If the person has heart, no need sign will also give seats to them"

    Problem is. People in general only have eyes to see. They cant feel you.

    (If a old or pregnant lady came along. You are sick and is seating down. Everybody will still arrows you..But may not be the same if you have your leg in cast or something along that line.) Just saying.

    I think the society is becoming "judge by appearance". My dad is 70+, uses Brylcreem, so hair appears glossy and black. He doesn't get a seat. Then some younger bloke comes along, probably late 50-early 60s, with fluffy white hair. Someone gives up his seat to him.

    To addon, sick does not mean the runny nose, sneezing kind of sick. There are truly sick people on public transport such as those suffering from cardio disease, cancer, slipped disc, etc. We cannot tell they are sick but I am sure they also liked to be treated like the handicaps.

    Share with us your dad's secret to eternal youth. Then MRT can provide less seats on the trains.

    Ultimately it's an act of grace. If a person tells me that he has some problem and I had ever given up the seat by giving the benefit of doubt.

    That is true, but it is not "becoming" - it has always been that way. Hidden diseases can't be seen. I'm definitely not going to ask every stop if there's someone around with cardiovascular disease or cancer or is feeling weak and would like to sit? So you just gauge based on appearances and go on from there. Sometimes, you have to open your mouth, and that's just life.

    True. But then who would go ard telling others that they have cancer and so and so.... I think this group of people are the silent sufferer. Next time I just bring my own foldable chair.

    Just ask nicely - "hi, I'm not feeling so good today, is it ok if I could have your seat?"

    I would like to think (and hope) that most people would have enough faith in humanity and in themselves to give up the seat with a smile.

    not that i am evil or what, but if you look at it, the only way for things to improve just a wee bit, is when all such old folks die.

    old dogs cannot learn new tricks, nothing goes into their heads. so either you put them down, or wait for them to die a natural death.
