The Chivalry, It Is Dead.

Yesterday morning on the train on the way in to work I saw a woman who was SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT sitting on the FLOOR of the train car because no one offered her their seat. It was despicable! She was very good natured about it.

Couldn't have been me.

You've got to be kidding me!! That's just inexcusable!

Just know, I would have given you a seat in a heartbeat. And so would the rest of my family, kids included.

To "opposite of heaven" to all of them!


I will always always give up my seat to a pregnant, elderly, woman with children, etc...

on a bus, train or WHATEVER!

Makes me want to time/space travel, board that train and b*tch slap those people into awareness. Sheesh!

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I lived in NYC for a few months. It was ALWAYS the older, 50-60ish women who would offer their seats. The folks under 30? Not a chance. It's really sad.

And don't get me started on being pregnant in college. Oh lord. Getting on the campus bus was such a pain that I just started walking everywhere. A college in Ohio, mind you. In winter. Yeah, I know.

I remember this all too well when I lived in DC. I was the preggers one. On a rare day, another woman would offer her seat. I couldn't believe some of these men. Disgusting. At first I would stare and try to burn a hole in his head. Finally, I just started asking for the seat. CRAZY!!
