This is a discussion on Seat in MRT within the Second Trimester forum, part of the Pregnancy Forum category; i really despise those see us act sleep 1s, act somemore... really sleep maybe i can accept... ahahhaha,not to mention ...
i really despise those see us act sleep 1s, act somemore... really sleep maybe i can accept... ahahhaha,not to mention only seats....
when walking on streets people also walk very fast towards my directions, they are like pouring towards my direction...like they dont 'give way' to me.. ''expect'' i give way to them...
must we really look like those preggy on TV, whereby our drum is the size of a antique water barrel...? or even the illustrations of the priority seats in MRT is not very well-drawn or understandable? hahaha
when walking,i even once met a couple never let go their hands..right in front of me , but i think its ok...i leave it... i just walk to the ''émpty'' side of the walkway...
doesnt mean we want/need full attention pa.. just basic courtesy...
haha. when i was preg, my temper very bad. if too crowded, i will get frustrated. esp when i say excuse me 3 times ppl still deaf.
once, i walk walk walk, then everyone was pushing me n rushing.. dont know for what, not peak period also.
damn fed up, one auntie, then walk so slowly in front of me, like she walk not to one side, but in the centre, so i cant walk past her. i say excuse me 2 times she still slowly jalan, i fed up n say EXCUSE ME very loudly n angrily, then she turn arnd n look at me, then she saw i big tummy she say sorry n move away, then she tell her hubby, wah she so fierce, next time baby also like her. i so angry then i turn arnd n tell her, is you walk so slow block my way, i already say excuse me twice but you canot hear. pls walk to one side n not block ppl way, you not as slim as me ok! then i walk away!
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
well, this had already been a norm for quite some time already. anyway, i'd always stand in train, bcos, when i board train, the ppl will automatically fall asleep.. i never know that i can cast sleeping spell.
Hi althought I'm only about 13 weeks +, my tummy can obviously seen. So far I can say most of the Singaporean are really hopeless loh. Even thoes "Anuty" about middle age.. only one words...HOPELESS...
I have a great idea for thoes that see you and pretend not to see or close they eyes immediately. We can "shout" it lound and say "dont't worry I'm not going to take your seat" hahaha I think that will make them embarrassed . So sisters, let start it now
I'm currently in my 6th month.. I travel by bus to work and the bus I took is Express 502A. this bus travels from Jurong and straight to Orchard Road via PIE (no stops until Orchard.. so good luck if you dont't get a seat!). The people who board the the bus are always the same faces. I'm really impressed with the drivers of this bus service. When I flag the bus to stop.. they will stop the bus directly infront of me even during crowded period. But the people who patronised this service.. hmmphh.. I was offered seats quite a number of times and it's by the same two ladies. Sometimes I feel bad that the same kind people have to offer their seats to me while others just doze off or read their books.
During the end of my first trimester.. I always have dizzy spells when I stand too long. One fine morning.. I had to stand all the way from Boon Lay to Lucky Plaza.. Along PIE near the Lornie Rd exit.. I was feeling dizzy and my vision was already blurred. My 2 hands was already holding on to the hand rails and I kept looking down and sweating (despite the cold air-con).. and I kept massaging my head and neck.. yet no one stood up and offered their seats to me. I was lucky that I did not fall unconscious..
ive seen alot of pretenders on train. either duper sleepy or suddenly become super studious. keep reading. but for few times, they will keep staring at me and my bump. never give up seat to me somemore! still dare to stare! i really wonder wats wrong with these pple nowadays!
Those who dont even bother to pretend is worse, they just stare right at you and think that they deserve the seat more than you.
There was a young malay lady who simply continue to put on make up despite seeing me and angry stares from commuters. A guy was making an obvious coughing sound to catch hold of her attention. She simply give that guy a black face. Later on she took out a pamphlet and start fanning herself. Total no sense of guilt. Luckily someone gave up his seat for me.
I will be very angry even if i am the pple standing around you when i meet such non gracious lady. I will sure give up my seats to any pregnant woman, even when I was in my 1st trimester.. hehe..now that i am in my 3rd trimester, pple usually give up seat to me. EXCEPT once, when a lady acutally stare and gave me angry fierce glance when i sit on the PRIORITY seat.. haha... so irritated by pple like her! not gracious at all...
I believe in what go around comes round, so do what i always can whenever possible... you do good, you will receive good in return. Of course, when i do good, i dont expect returns and i think this is the right way to think. Else if you always do things for return, you will not be happy if you dont get any returns..hehe
Sorry abit grandma story here...
wishing all mummies a good and smooth journey of pregnancy and wish that pple out there to give seats to all expecting women!
during my pregnancy days, in my 2T, i was in a crowded bus & standing near the exit. this lady, very kind of her, she called me & told me to take her seat. when i was about to move over to the seat, this young malay gal quickly sat down. i was surprised then i told the lady its ok but this kind lady gave the young malay gal a stern looked & said to her"excuse me!" & she pointed to me. the young malay gal looked at me & said "o! sorry sorry!". i told her its ok . well, guess there r nice people around me sometimes.
now whenever i saw pregnant ladies, i do take the initative to give up my seat & i felt happy when i do that
my stomach getting heavier now, leg started to cramp easily esp standing throughout the whole journey to work.as im quite small size, my stomach still looks small at 5mths. i stand at priority seat plp just look at my stomach then look at me then close their eyes. i started to get used to it when plp never give up seat to me.and rather surprise when there are someone asking me to seat down.throughout these 5mths i only get to sit down 4 times like that.
I was taking a bus (those handicapped bus) yesterday, crowded, no space to sit... but there was ample space to stand around the handicapped area.... so i stand there, holding on to the pole infront of me.. behind me there was those horizontal poles near the glass, but i did not prefer to hold on to it as if the bus brake suddenly, my hands will also slip along the pole and have a risk of falling, so holding on to a vertical pole seems safer for me...
then a lady in her 20's boarded the bus, there was space beside me for her to stand, near the horizontal pole I mentioned, but she prefers to stand infront of me and share with me the same vertical pole I am holding on... Ok, I am fine with it, the pole does not belongs to me alone anyway...
Then my hp rang, i free my hands to answer the phone... after finishing my call (around 20 seconds only), i wanted to place my hand back onto the pole for support.... the lady had her WHOLE BODY cling onto the pole!!! there was no space for me to put even a single hand there for support!!! I was like zzzzzzz she wasn't carrying anything heavy, she is very young, 20+ only, the bus was moving smoothly and she doesn't look sick etc... 2 stops later I alight, she doesn't wants to give way too... I have to make a roundabout her to alight as she was blocking the passageway..
when i reach home, i complain to my hubby that i was "bullied" (haha) ... he ask me, why didn't i ask the lady to give me some space or speak up to make her embarrassed?? I told him, no point, anyway i have 2 more stops to go only and the road are pretty even thus the bus shouldn't be bumpy so I ignore her....
eeeeeeeeeeee!!! i get this EVERY DAY!!!
and just this morning, these two idiots just stared at me throughout journey.
i am always so tempted to asking these people: 'so when is your baby due?'
or... 'are you handicapped or old? cos i cant seem to recognise you in any of the pictures above your head.'
knowing i'd rage eventually, i just keep my mouth shut.
makes me feel worst if i see another pregnant lady who wasnt offered a seat.
i wonder how these people would feel being heavily pregnant and not being considered.
what goes round come round. So do not need to get angry with pple like this.
But i also think that not because we are treated this way must be treat other expectant mum the same. I will still offer my seat to elderly,handicap and pregnant lady after my delivery.. We must mean well for others ok?
Just ignore these pple, getting angry with them doesn't solve the matter and only make yourself feel upset and neg.. No too good for baby and yourself... smile and be happy..imagine how your baby will look like and smile at you when s/he is born...keep yourself happy and your baby will be a bright and cheerful baby dont spolit your mood and emotion by these ignorant and inconsiderate pple! they dont't worth you spoilting your mood and day for
SMILE! *Hugs* =) dont't be angry k?
dont't give up seat is one thing, I can't stand people who dont't even give way or get impatient when walking behind me! I know the shopping centre is crowded, but I really cannot walk any faster. Plus I pushing stroller somemore. There are people who push/squeeze past me just to get ahead! Then the other day, my hubby was carrying my son and I was pushing the empty stroller and we were waiting to get on the train. I was right behind my hubby, but the crowd just pushed pass between us and I nearly missed the train. Too much right?
I think they should charge a premium or fine those ppl who sit on the priority seat if they are not pregnant, aged or in need.
