    And it doesnít matter how busy the subway is - blows my mind. Some people have a lot of gall.

    Or, and this is a given, people who wonít get up and offer their seat to pregnant women, the elderly, disabled or parents with children & strollers...
    Yes and yes. But I have a friend who said she won't offer a seat to a woman with a stroller/child because if she is commuting after a long day she's entitled to a seat. I kind of get that. I only accepted seats in that situation when the person said he was getting off the next stop, etc. When I was about 8 months pregnant I took a disabled seat -I was really tired, the bus was really crowded but there were other disabled seats available. A passenger yelled at me for taking a seat - she saw a disabled person board and I knew there was a seat for her so I didn't move (I was on my way to work). She screamed at me that pregnancy wasn't a disability. Gee thanks (by that point it was too hard for me to feel ok standing for more than 10 minutes like that).

    Did you respond by yelling back "Neither is IGNORANCE!"

    Oh wow why didn't I think of that??? Honestly I felt so vulnerable (can't run too fast for example when waddling along at that stage) I did my best not to make waves.

    I never had an issue with visibly pregnant ladies needing to sit down.
    It was the mega strollers that always made me cringe!
    The bus driver would yell " strollers coming in, get back!" in a sardine packed bus and you'd hear the wave of groaning happen lol.

    "My ex did horrible things to me! She/he lied, cheated, called me names! She/he ignored and blocked me! She/he is evil!

    How do I get her/him back?"

    lol I know precisely what you mean.

    I'm very tempted to introduce two people to each other.

    LOL. I always folded up my umbrella stroller on a bus (on a subway no). If there was plenty of room I didn't.

    When I wasn't visibly pregnant I still sometimes needed to sit down. I remember having to go up a flight of stairs at work when I wasn't yet showing and I was more exhausted than I thought and carrying my heavy briefcase. So I was slow. The maintenance guy needed to come down the stairs and had to wait for me and he taunted me about being so slow. Wrong thing to do to a newly pregnant exhausted woman. I did report him to my HR director because I didn't want anyone else to be subjected to that.

    I'm annoyed because my lazy coworker said she doesn't feel like working today.
