Rant: Seat Hogging Backpacks
I’m sure it didn’t notice through its closed eyes that there were people standing up right next to it. I’m wondering, however, with your wide-open eyes, if you did. Did you notice the cute red pony tailed girl with the Starbucks cup who looked like she was going to cry? Did you notice how she had a backpack that was twice as big as yours? I’ll bet here backpack was pretty tired too. I noticed how neither you nor your backpack offered her a seat. Did you notice the woman with the two small children with the two small backpacks? I’m pretty damn sure she was a bit more tired and deserving of a seat than your backpack.
Yes, you were very thoughtful of your backpack, but quite oblivious of all the other backpacks and their owners who were in great need. I don’t carry a backpack, but I’m much more observant of others who are more burdened than myself. So, next time, Mr. Greedy Backpack Owner, I will be ejecting your backpack from its comfy seat so I can place my non-backpack wearing can down next to you and some other backpack can have my seat!
