What is polite and what is rude?
On the subway this morning, a homeless man sat in a corner quietly scribbling notes on a newspaper, with all his belongings next to him.
No one else sat in that section of the subway.
The rest of the subway car was reasonably full. But there was an invisible line that kept newcomers from seating near the homeless man.
Was it out of respect that people gave him his space, recognizing this was his temporary home?
Or was it out of fear, repulsion or alienation?
How would you have approached it?
