Perhaps through your newspaper I can make some people aware that firstly they should not be as ignorant or lazy as they make themselves out to be.

For example; if a notice on a gate says please shut the gate, then please do so. It seems there are people who have the ability to use their hands to open a gate but just cannot be bothered.

It is apparent on public transport. There are some people who board buses and just cannot be bothered or are too lazy to move out of an area where someone with a pushchair or mobility walker or some other mobility device needs to be.

I have noticed there are plenty of vacant seats halfway up the bus or even at the back of the bus.

So is it just pure ignorance, downright laziness or just lack of consideration for others?
