Hierarchy Of Seats Theory

I received a chained email from a good friend of mine today and it reminds me of my own experience riding in Rapid KL Buses , the LRTs and also the good ol' KTM Komuter train. So, here goes:..

Salam & Hello friends,

I snaped this photo on Monday 6th April 6.30pm, in Komuter from KL
Central. It's happen I had to take Komuter on that day. I think this is my 3rd or4th time ride in Komuter.

Obviously you can see a lady carrying her kid ,STANDING nearby the main door. Her kid is sleeping. And please have a good look at those 4 ladies..sitting and pretending they didn't see the
mother with baby!
The woman in brown baju kurung is sleeping (I can forgive her la...after
few stations only she woke up..) the girl in long hair just sit there
busy SMSing, the lady in headphone finally offered her seat only after 15-20
minutes (or maybe after she realised I took their photo). And paling
sakit hati...the lady in red t-shirt just buat2 tak tau..or pretending she
see the mother with baby..after the lady in blue T offered her seat, the
lady in red shirt looks relief and try to give manja look at the
sleeping baby.
This thing happen because WE allow it to happen.
For those who never/seldom ride in Komuter, LRT, or other public
transport..this is real. Be grateful that you are not one of them who
have to use public transport. Even looking at it make you feel sad and mad.
For those who are using public transport..don' t allow this to happen.
Make effort to offer your seat or to ask people who is sitting (if they
are fit!) to offer their seat.

Be a better Malaysian!

This is not the 1st time. I saw alot of young and fit Malaysian (especially KLites!) are so reluctant to offer their seats to those in need especially pregnant moms and senior citizens. They're so protective over their seat and it's like having a gold plate sticking to their big golden butt.So, they must ensure their butts are safe.

I was a frequent commuters before and I formulated a simple theory for this and i called it as K-E 's Hierarchy of Seat Theory. In my theory, seats in public transportations is like an organizational chart or even like a food-chain. The top of the list are the priority to sit, and guess who are supposed to be the last to be seated?

1) Pregnant Moms
2) The Disabled
3)The Senior Citizens-Female
4) The Senior Citizens- Male
5) Woman with little-children (like the picture above)
6) Young Woman and ladies.

and finally, the last species to have their seats are:...

7) Young Men,Boys or guys...
..who are supposed to be fit and the strongest among all. Who can endure the pain and the agony of standing in a long journey. Who feel honoured to give what he have (e.g the seat) to those in the list above and proudly said, " ..It's ok, I am a man.."

Anyway, it is the appropriate time to apply our MALE EGO at the right place and to the right people. The honourable feeling is there for you to celebrate,just because you gave your seat to an elderly woman. Trust me. I've been there and done that!!

You still don't understand the Hierarchy of Seats Theory? Just simply look for a pictorial signage in LRTs or Komuter Train which said ,"..Please Give Seat to: Pregnant Mothers, The Disabled and The Elderly.."
Get it?..It is so simple and not a Rocket Science at all.

So, no one ask us to be an angel or a saint . Just being nice and courteous to our own community is already enough.

I thought malaysians are caring enough but sadly we are just as bad as our friends in The Little Red Dot.

Thanks for highlighting the ego of malaysian guys - shish - what a turn-off.

Take care!

It seems that the their 'kiasu disease' have eventually spreading among Malaysian.Sad thing.

Yeap.Honestly, i do think by giving our our seats to the seniors citizen,the disable and also to the ladies can actually boost up our EGO.It is a good thing.

So, to the brothers out there..Show your ego properly,dude!!

Wrong, Najib.

Doubts about opposition rule is nothing compared to the people disgust at Umno rule.

Your deputy has never heard of 1Malaysia.

Your home minister displays sickening partisanship.

Your judiciary pretends it doesn't know how to read the Perak constitution.

Your MACC goes on baseless witch-hunts against opposition politicians rather than fight real corruption.

Your police force prioritises suppressing peaceful gatherings than fighting crime.

Your AG practises selective prosecution.

It seems like Selcat can do better job than MACC. The interrogation was conducted in transparent and professional ways. BN shame on you.

You are so damn right. From day one I am still trying to figure out what Najib meant by 1Malaysia. Every stooge in UMNO including his deputy is surely anti 1Malaysia if my interpretation is right.

As for PR, not only the dickhead Zulkifli Nordin, but Hassan Ali should be sacked from the parties for dragging PR through mud, and idiotic stand on sensitive matters.

Well written & well said!

UMNO and BN components are rotten by their selfish, nepotism and crony system, injustice, greed, corrupted minds, arrogance, abused power etc, after 50 years in power.

It is time to Look East Policy in Japan to kick UMNO and BN out in GE13. The Makkal Sakti people power by Pakatan Rakyat to rule Malaysia soon!
