When People Ask You To Exchange Berths In Train?

How would you feel if someone asked you to exchange their berths or seats with you during a journey by train? Do you feel like helping someone or feel like being used just because you were alone, you were not an aged personality or because you were healthy. Should you exchange berths inside the trains?

I am a frequent traveler and this happens frequently with me. Ladies in particular are very stiff on acquiring the lower berths. Those with older men/women are also insistent upon exchanging berths. Lower berths attract so many people that it sometimes becomes irritating for the one

with a lower berth.

Yesterday while I entered the train, a lady was sitting on my side lower berth. When I asked her that it was my seat, she said that she was a lady and it would not be comfortable for her. I agreed and went up. After two stations she got down without informing me and other people acquired that place while I was still asleep.

I have changed seats almost every time they asked

me to keeping in mind that I was helping them but then I felt that they could have gone up and what was such a big issue in getting on the upper berth. While I could go on the upper berth with a knee problem, why wouldn’t they? Everybody has problems.

Then there is another thing. In an ac coach if you are on the upper berth, you would never know which station has been crossed and which is about to come. This becomes a major problem during night times as there is one to talk and the curtains are closed. Opening the curtains, particularly where a lady was sleeping could be an issue.

These days I am getting confused whether to accept the proposal to change the berths. If there is a trouble in going to the upper berth why should I face it? For a genuine reason any help goes without saying.
