By definition wouldn’t the entitled one in the story be the woman? (again, I would personally give up my seat to the man, woman, child, animal, etc. that’s in need but that’s just how I am) But in this instance, the woman is the one that’s expecting something from someone who already has claimed to the seat. It could’ve been a man needing the Michael Myers horror Halloween shirt. She was in a special condition. Just as if a man enters a packed train in crutches, he should feel entitled for a seat. I had foot surgery a while back and I couldn’t put my foot on the ground. I had to walk with crutches and still go to classes every day. There are a certain number of seats allocated for people who are seniors or have disabilities. Often I see fit young people occupying them and not offering them to frail elderly folk. Only three weeks ago I saw an old lady fall on a bus because of this. It’s common manners. If you don’t need a seat then give it to someone who does.

There was always plenty of people giving up their seats for me (thank God. I guess Portugal is still very much old fashioned like that) and yes I felt entitled to one because balancing yourself on one foot in crutches for a whole 45-minute ride in a train in motion is nearly impossible. And if I did put pressure on my foot I would be in excruciating pain and possibly screw up the Michael Myers horror Halloween shirt for the rest of my life. So YES, I felt very much entitled!
