1) How strange! I do not have a car, so I either walk or take the bus.
Why it is strange? excuse me if I am being a curious.
(2) From my experience, female senior citizens very much appreciate such gestures on the part of men.
(3) In fact, some expect
it. I once saw a female senior citizen walk up to two men who were in their twenties and tell them with her hand gesture to vacate their seats for her. They complied without saying anything.
(4) Of course, I shall not name it, but I read that in a certain country famous for
having respect for older people (such as I), many of the youth there no longer honor that tradition. The government, I hear, is trying to teach the youth better manners.
