For those of you not conversant with Philippine bus culture, if a seat-back jams on a crowded bus (still at the terminal) the conductor will cooly break off the offending back rest and manoeuvre it into the aisle (random passenger instructed to hold it for the next 2 hours). Then direct a standing passenger to squish into the opened up seat (there’s room for four to sit there now).
Somehow if this happened in Australia I think there might have been more than laughter and then thanks to the conductor for ‘fixing’ their seat. How about your country?
