Rant du jour

What is it with this town? If you see a pregnant woman on the T, get your big lazy ass off your seat and offer it to her! How hard can that be? Is it that much of a sacrifice?

This morning I was on a slow train to Park Street, and then we stopped outside of Charles Street due to a "medical emergency" at Park Street. At this point, I started to panic a little because I really can't stand up for more than 10 minutes at a time before my back starts to ache and I feel lightheaded. I did make it to Park, but I was a mess by the time I got there.

So, if you see a woman on the T with a big belly, clutching her lower back and looking faint get your big nose out of your book and offer her your seat.

Is it too much to ask for some common courtesy? I get up for elderly people and pregnant women (when I'm not one of them) every chance I get. Risk offending a larger woman who may not be with child and offer your seat!

Snap out of your stupor people, you're causing all kinds of pain.
