“I saw a sign on the train saying, ‘Please give this seat to an elderly person‘“ (joke)

Some seats on buses and trains—usually those near the exits—are suggested for the elderly and disabled. A joke was posted on Twitter by Sickipedia Official on June 2, 2013:

“Saw a sign on the train saying ‘please give this seat to an elderly person’ so i unscrewed it and took it to my grandads house.”

The joke was originally posted on the Sickipedia website.

23 October 2013, Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland), “Well, it is public transport” by Tam Cowan, pg. 13:
ON the bus last week, my pal saw a sign that said: “Please give this seat to an elderly person.”

So he unscrewed it and took it to his granny’s house.
