"You know the other day, I was feeling so bad," said one of them.
"Oh no, what was the matter?" said the other.
"Well, I think it was the heat, but basically I was really close to fainting," she said.
"Aww, I'm really sorry."
"Yeah, and then this old woman got on the bus and said I had to get up so she could sit down!"
I was shocked and apparently it was quite evident that I was quite engrossed in the story, as she looked at me for a second and finished the story in a more theatrical way.
"And I tried to explain, but she wouldn't let me and made me get up anyway!"
By this point, I was quite shocked. A shocking ending to an intense story! I suppose the unspoken rule that old people are more deserving a seat is something which needs not to be taken so ridgidly. Age is not an easy indicator of a person's health and it's something that should always be kept in mind.
