Social Bravery...

A few days ago, I was on the train going to work and I saw this woman sit down SIT DOWN! in the aisle. The (very small) conformist in me initially balked at this situation, thinking "what is wrong with this woman?" but I immediately took back this thought and realized how impressive that is. It was a crowded train, there was no free seat, it's sorta a long trip, and she was probably tired. Bravo, I say. Bravo.

Or there was something wrong with her and she just didn't think that people don't normally do that. Whatever.

On the floor in the aisle? Maybe she just wanted to see how the very small conformist that writes in big capilal letters would react. *laugh*

They should make it into some kind of ad for social bravery: I saw a woman sit on the aisle of the train today. What did YOU do? :)

How would they package social bravery? In bottles? In a patch? In plain unmarked brown paper wrappers?

I think they'd be sold in adult shops right under the racy toys' shelf. :)
