I took the train to work this morning. As usual, the train carriages were crowded. A pregnant woman was standing for most of the way until the guy sitting next to me noticed that she was pregnant, and moving unsteadily on her feet. The people sitting around her pretty much ignored her, some reading their papers, another stared out the window and another busy putting warpaint on her eyes. All ladies I must say. The guy next to me stood up and the woman had to pushed her way through a couple of other people before arriving at his seat.
Not only did she thank him, but she also commented that it was the first time anyone has ever offered her a seat while being pregnant.
Are Melbourians becoming less kind, less caring? I wished I saw her first.
