My small kindnesses are helping
those with heavy luggage who forget they can use lifts/elevators at train
stations. Also, I allow people to leave the train by not blocking them, as so
many others do. Plus anyone smaller than the crowd, I make sure they can get
onto a train first, and be able to put away any luggage, and find a nice seat,
as I'm a big man I can discreetly block, and so protect those less able.
