You're making up LOTS of shit here. The poster doesn't want to sit because he "uses tickets as a status symbol" or "thinks he's better than anyone". He wants to sit because he has arhtritic knees and standing HURTS.
By your definition of "arogant" (which I'm going to heretofore spell with 1 r, because it's not the same as the actual word), aren't you "arogant" because you think that you standing is more important than his physical comfort?
By the way, can you make me a Turkey Tom when you get into work? I prefer you go light on the sprouts.
