Pregnant Woman in the Train

I got so pissed when I saw a pregnant woman standing in the MRT Train heading North of Edsa. At first, I did not noticed her but when I realized she was pregnant, I asked her do you wanna seat? She said no I am okay which was a typical answer for Filipinas.  However, I did not listen to her and looked around the train and “yelled pregnant lady in the train.” Immediately a 50sh man stood up while I slowly guided her to the seat. The lady smiled and said thank you to me when I left the train.  I had run ins with people in the Western world too like the one in Union Station in Los Angeles, I pointed my finger to a man and told him to stand up and offer his seat to a senior citizen. Even in the bus, told a man off to let an elderly seat.  One told me, I was raised well by my parents.

One word of advice, if you are running about and see a pregnant or elderly person, give them priority seat right away or Chuck Norris might fly over you and whoop your cocky eyed good bye.

      • And you have every right to do so. I think in a society with less, people tend to give more. Unfortunately, with our society where we have too much, people tend to be selfish in each and every way possible. I too am guilty. ohh the shame…

      • I totally agree. Not saying I am perfect but when I see something that is wrong, you will definitely hear a word from me. To think in Asia, we value values but because of modernization, people forget. So sad!
