    The biggest instance of this for me is a fella at work early last year had a heart attack and luckily we have several people CPR trained who saved his life.

    Whilst they were doing their bit others brought in the zapper which got him going and thankfully an ambulance turned up later and he survived. Had it not been for the people around him he wouldn't be alive now.

    As a result loads of us volunteered to do CPR training and most of the office has at least done some form of it, it has a big impact on you and just shows people do care.

    I think we can be selfish when it comes to the small things but when it comes to lives at stake etc people are always good and will always do the right thing to help someone.

    Not all the younger generation are like that. Not fair to paint them all the same. And the main thing we need to accept, is that it is us, our generation who have failed bringing them up.

    The ones who have no respect have been brought up to be like that. My sons weren’t, none of my family or friends have brought up their kids to be cunts. But plenty have, so the next time you see a young person being a cunt, think of their parents, it’s their Fucking fault.

    We have respect because our mums and dads brought us up that way. If there is a failure with our kids then look in the mirror.

    Sick of hearing the young getting it in the neck because their parents didn’t give a Fuck raising them with values of respect.

    It may happen , but more than it did when I was young 70s 80s, probably not. My mum was saying not long ago she has never been left standing on a bus or tram , young people always stand for her to sit.

    Well done to the 3 City lads who jumped out of their seats on the train near Hazel Grove on Sunday. Some young mothers, sorry no photos, got on the train with their youngsters immediately our lads offered their seats.

    If she was in Paris and that metro was full of Chelsea fans, she wouldn't have got on at all. She wants to consider herself lucky.

    When I saw the thread title I presumed you were talking about Baby Boomers

    I'd be astonished if this doesn't turn out to be staged.

    I remember a photo doing the rounds of a pregnant woman stood up and a load of blokes sat down and the usual online witch-hunt started.

    Turns out she’d stood to get up at the next stop, the pregnant woman released a statement on it.

    These pictures aren’t always accurate.

    Maybe this one is but I don’t think this is a generational issue, I always see people giving their seats up, of all ages, on the Met in Manchester and trains.
