    i told her it doesnt matter, her baby has their own seat in the pram
    she is not entitled to my seat because shes too lazy to stand

    anyone else do this all the time?
    You were right OP. If she wasnt currently pregnant, then why does she just expect people to get up for her.

    Good going OP

    I normally stand because it keeps my glutes active and toned but if i see a full time mummy or soon to be full time mummy get on board, i quickly take the seat she would be about to take and pretend im asleep

    Now I think about it, those badges are the main reason for my refusal to give up my seat. They wind me up.

    How can I not? Quite easily I tell you that. All of the pregnant women I've seen on the train have been perfectly capable of standing. I would only give up my seat for somebody who is very visibly old.

    What especially annoys me about pregnant women on the tube is that they wear the 'baby on board' badges which are quite passive aggressive. And they must be resisted.
    omg really? Puuke

    Not something I'd say to someone! Though the buses I take are usually empty! Even then if the bus gets packed I usually stand and let someone else take the seat!

    people dont have to give up their seats for someone in a worse position than them but theres nothing wrong with showing an act of kindness when you know someones struggling. i always offer my seat to pregnant/young mothers with babies or elderly.

    Well I haven't experienced being pregnant so I wouldn't know how bad it is.

    Oh my this gave me a chuckle.. I presume they wear the badges so that they wouldn't need to ask. Although if your stomach is clearly bulging people would get the idea. That and I wouldn't ever bother wasting money on it. All in all I hate public transport I cant see myself getting on it when pregnant/ having a new born child.

    I can't believe how rude some of you are. I assume that when you're old / disabled / pregnant, you're going to expect others to give you a seat?

    Just hope that they don't think you're dead and call an undertaker.

    And yet historically we humans have wound up clocks and watches and still expected them to tell us the time whenever we wanted them to.

    I wouldn't give up my seat for an elderly person, they screwed up this country, and are going to screw it up more with the EU vote, they get free transport, loads of goodies in the budget... but to not give it up for a pregnant woman? You are subhuman :yes:

    (But I suspect you are joking)

    You are entitled to sit where you want. Although it wouldve been a nice gesture to let her sit there.

    What do you mean 'screw it up with the EU vote'?
