.: Golden years :.

Growing pains.

Sometimes I wonder why there are no express lanes for:

  1. Senior citizens
  2. Young children
  3. Pregnant women
  4. Disabled

Yes, we do have designated seats for them in the bus and on the subway. We also have designated parking bays for the disabled. 

However, I would like to point out that it would be awfully nice to provide express lanes for them at these places:

  1. Government offices
  2. Immigration points
  3. Hospitals
  4. Airports
  5. Postal Offices
  6. Banks

Having express lanes for these people without a doubt would certainly give them a more pleasant experience. For starters, they do not have to spend hours waiting or queuing-up for their turns. 

Not too long ago I saw an elderly man almost passing out for having to stand and wait too long for his queue number. On other occasions, I have observed some having to pass their turn and head elsewhere as they had grown weary of waiting. While my observations may represent a meager percentage of the population, I do believe this is something worth implementing.

We may have progressed economically, in terms of our financial standings, towering infrastructures, and sophisticated machinery. It is high time we spare a thought on improving the living standards of those around us, the ones that truly require our assistance. 

Thinking out loud.
