This is not the first time that the elderly forced the young to yield their seats. I do believe people should give up their seats to the old people because it is the morally right thing to do, but can they be forced or barbarically taken?

(Shanghaiist) Recently, an auntie on the Nanjing Metro believed quite firmly that one young man ought to give up his seat so that she could rest her relatively old bones. However, the guy thought otherwise, resulting in the auntie forcing a sort of "compromise."

A short video clip has gone viral on Chinese social media recently showing the auntie nonchalantly seated on the guy's lap. Meanwhile, other commuters appear to try to act as if this was a normal thing.

If she really was his auntie he would have recognized her and let her sit on his seat but she seemed to be a total stranger. With very strange manners.
