Last week, I ran into an acquaintance in the bus. The bus was very crowded and she could tell from my face that I was not doing very well. I was standing in front of her and when I told her about my back pain, she offered to hold my purse. Then she went on and on about things I shouldn’t do and thing I should do. She was talking from experience apparently. She mentioned that I should not stand on my feet. Did she offer me her seat? No.
