As many DC residents know, the local subway system has launched an etiquette campaign to insure that priority seating is given to the elderly and people with disabilities. The four seats nearest the center doors are clearly marked with “priority seating” signs, including “You don’t have to stand for this” posters. Conductors even read scripted reminders to riders at various stops.
So how is this campaign working out? I snapped a photo of this guy sitting in the priority section (and taking up 2 seats with his bags) – just after an elderly man with a cane limped by.
I gave him the evil eye… he returned the glare.
So I decided to feature him on my blog.
As a physician who works with people with disabilities this really gets my goat.
