Kids learning from their parents

I know it is not fair to just simply blame the parents for the bad behavior of their children. However, I saw something when I was about to go home by train few days ago on Wednesday 22nd June 2011.

After hanging out with my friend in Bogor, I went home using economic train with AC back to Jakarta. The ticket fare is at IDR 5,500.00 , half price compare to Pakuan Express. I chose that because that was the available train on 15.42 while Pakuan Express would be available on 16.20. If the train able to be there on time.

I am rarely taking train as public transportation in Jakarta... So, I decided to try to use it anyway... Before the train fare rising up like crazy on 2nd July 2011

Usually I only went to the Station Kota (central station for trains in Jakarta). But yesterday I decided to go to Station Kota then continue to Bogor. To go to Station Kota I bought AC Economic at price IDR 4,500.00 and decided to stand inside carriage for women only. It was fun to see only women inside the carriage and they busy chatting to each other

A few days ago I read on this site that PT Kereta API Indonesia planning to raise the fare to IDR 8,000.00 as there will be only two kind of train service. One the economic class and the second the one with the pricey fare (at IDR 8,000.00).

Additional facility

Yesterday, I read on this mailing list about Trans Jakarta. A member of
that mailing list complained that there was this passenger told her kid to
just take a pee while on the busway. She found out about it and asked the
mother not to do so. The father then whispering to the mother, blamed her
why she could get caught by another passenger. Yikes

Ever wondering why people prefer to risk their safety by standing near the door instead inside the bus?
