Such cynicism that you think this is extraordinary behaviour. Woudn't most of us do the same?
Absolutely, we do tend to focus too much on the darker sides of people's characters and are often blind to kindnesses.
Relevant also to the thread about how rude people can be on buses I have to say that while I was on crutches and using buses to get everywhere the other passengers couldn't have been nicer. Almost without exception people were making sure I had enough room to get to a seat and where necessary vacate their seat for me. There are plenty of good 'uns round here too!
