Posted in: Is chivalry dead on Tokyo trains? See in context

I agree that both men and women on the train need to be more considerate of their fellow passengers. I don't know how many times I have had to stand up for over 30 minutes holding my sleeping daughter while other able bodied passengers sit right in front of me reading manga using their cell phones or pretending to be asleep. On countless occasions I have witnessed people unwilling to move over one seat to allow elderly friends sit together, instead these seniors usually negotiate over several stations who should get to sit down. Is this really necessary?

It seems to me that only taking a couple of seconds to assess your surroundings would make train travel much more amiable for everyone.
