Who should you give up your seat for in the subway?

Introducing the official Public Transit Seat-Giving-Up Hierarchy.

It's hard being a commuter! You have to deal with crowded cars, insane delays and the embarrassment of not knowing whether or not you should give up your seat to someone! We can't help with the first two, but we've finally got a solution to the third. Introducing: The Official Public Transit Seat-Giving-Up Hierarchy.

How does it work? It's simple: Merely find on the list the category you fall into. Any time you are sitting in a crowded bus or car and see someone standing, check the hierarchy to see if they are in a category above or below you. If they're above, give up your seat; if they're below, let 'em stand!
