New series of discussions - There are no rules - no laws - more of how context drives everything
First one is Lines/Queues.
We all stand in Lines/Queues for one thing or the other. We see some senior citizen/disabled person also standing way behind in the queue.
1) Are you allowed to 'swap' positions with elderly/disabled - or you simply have to give up
2) If you are actually behind someone who is (doing the)swapping their position with someone else - will you object ?
3) If someone has just one thing to do - a checkout with single item as opposed to a cart full - will you let them go forward ?
4) What if the guy ahead of you, instead of 'swap'ing - allows the senior person to come ahead (now you are two positions behind in the queue) - is there a case for valid objection ?
5) What if the 'allow one more' happens to be not an elderly person ? - would you protest.
6) What if the 'swap' happens to be not an elderly person ? - would you protest.
7) If you are seated on a bus/train and want to vacate the seat for someone elderly (or otherwise) - can the person who is actually next to the seat object ?
i.e. What is the meaning of a 'position' in a queue ? - what rights does a person in the queue, have over the position they occupy ?
Thoughts ? any more questions ? bring them on - lets get everyone to think aloud :-)
