Boy, Jeff, in just a few days in Boston, you've found out what I've known for years - people would soon piss on you than help out a little. I rode the "T" for five years and I don't think there was ever a time when I didn't give up my seat for an older or pregnant woman. And this is coming from someone who generally hates people. (maybe now I know why) And what's worse is when people push their way on to find a seat. Look, numb nuts, getting a seat isn't the end all be all to your existence. Stand once in a while, maybe you'll lose that fat ass of yours.
