Very valid point. An able-bodied man sitting down when there are elderly, and women standing is something that we look down upon. I have been guilty of this too.

DH has experienced this. Since the day we met, he usually never sits even when there are seats available, train half empty ( those were the days ...). But a few years ago , he had some back/nerves issues , that made him feel very weak sometimes. He took cabs mostly, but peak hour from city - meant long waits which was equally bad. So when we went by mrt, he would feel embarrassed to sit even in the non-reserved seats. There were times , he got off , sat in the station benches for 5-10 mins for the discomfort to pass and then boarded train.

Of course, I no longer pass judgement when I see people sitting on the reserved seat.

Maybe he was hoping it was the young pretty girl behind you who would sit down next to him...
