Jesse Mermell reports from the Green Line this morning:
An older woman with a 20-something woman just got on the T car I’m on. A 20-something man kindly offered his seat. Without missing a beat the older woman says “thank you, you should meet my granddaughter Katie!” Katie looked mortified. Matchmaking grandmothers never rest!
Several minutes later the grandmother was still talking to Katie about how nice the young man was to give up his seat for her.
