In Western culture, those who sit in the front of the bus stand up and get into the aisle and then disembark first (think like with planes) – the people in the back of the bus wait for the people in front. It’s just being courteous.
But in Taiwan, it all seems like a pile to the aisle as soon as the bus stops. Inevitably, those in the front who couldn’t get into the aisle fast enough get “stuck” in their seats and watch everyone further back in the bus file out in front of them. Many don’t even make an attempt to get out of their seats period, as well. Also, those getting off rarely give those stuck in front who want to get off the bus any chance to get into the aisle…Is there some unspoken rule I’ve missed in Taiwan? Can anyone explain what on earth is going on? Has Taiwan society thought this one through?
