Heavily pregnant woman's superb reaction to man who refused to move his bag from last spare seat on bus goes viral!
Brydie Lee-Kennedy who was refused seat on a crowded bus by man shared her experience on social media and many women responded by sharing their own experiences
It is just basic manners to offer up your seat for a pregnant woman while on a crowded bus and, in fact, it is the right thing to do. However, pregnant mother Brydie Lee-Kennedy learned the hard way that not all people have the same morals.
The heavily pregnant woman found herself in a very awkward situation when a fellow commuter flatly refused to move his bag so that she could sit down. The eight-month pregnant woman resorted to sitting on his hand and bag after he did not remove his belongings from the seat next to him. She took to social media to share her experience and encounter.
Well it finally happened in my 8th month of pregnancy, I just sat on a man’s hand and bag when he wouldn’t move them off the last spare seat on the bus. We’re now sharing a very quiet ride.— Brydie Lee-Kennedy (@BrydieLK) 4 September 2018
"Well, it finally happened in my 8th month of pregnancy," she wrote on Twitter. "I just sat on a man's hand and bag when he wouldn't move them off the last spare seat on the bus. We're now sharing a very quiet ride. I wonder what it’s like to live somewhere with a less Hunger Games spirit on public transport," she added.
Her post garnered a lot of attention on the Internet and her tweet has got over 170,000 likes. It has also prompted many pregnant mothers to come forward and open up about their public transport experiences.
One mother tweeted, "When I was seven months pregnant, a guy literally shoved me aside to race past me to the last seat. Spent the next four stops finding various ways of calling him a c*** to his face. He said, "Is that how you'll talk to your kid?" I said, "No, because he won't be a c*** like you".
Another mother added, "When I was pregs [sic] I asked a manspreader if I could share his bench seat on the bus and he gestured to his wide legs and said, "No". Like, "Sorry, my b***s need that space".
Another mother shared her experience and wrote, "When I was about four months pregnant I asked a man if I could have his seat on the train and I felt really sick as I was pregnant. He said 'Well, you want equality, you can stand'. I threw up on him and his newspaper, and his laptop bag. The look of shock on his face was gratifying".
