The subway and old people
After spending time with church friends, I got on the subway train to go back home. I sat down and this older lady came rushing in and looked around for a seat but they were all taken. So, I got up and offered her my seat but she adamantly refused and walked away from me. My first thought was, "Oh, man...was she not old?" I thought I offended her by implying that she was too old to be standing. I felt really embarrassed. From now on, I am not going to offer my seat unless he/she has undeniably, indubitably, unquestionably fossilized into a walking relic.
