So..what did I do today? Well, I intentionally took a public bus. Hm, I gotta admit, I'm one who always takes cabs..and even if there aren't any around, I will call for a cab and pay that extra charge.. Yesh, yesh..I'm spoilt but at least now, I can justify it with my current penguin-like condition :)...Anyway, I decided to take the bus from Orchard Rd back home to see if anyone would offer their seat to preggy ol' me hee~ Yes - it is an experiment.
Well, I took the bus from the bus-stop opposite The Specialist Shopping Centre at abt 5pm..Though it wasn't exactly filled with people, most of the seats were taken up. I then made my way up the bus and started eyeballing the people on the seats. No one looked at me :(... A while later, I noticed a young lady - she looked like a poly student, who was sitting in the seat in front of me but next to the window..she slowly made her way out..And I was like ..Yesh!! She's gonna offer her seat to me..BUT, she then nodded to this other PREGNANT lady who was standing abt 3 seats away to take the seat!!! Arghhhh!!!!
I ended up standing almost throughout the entire trip in the bus (the bus emptied out later so I managed to sit for at least 3 stops *sigh*). I then called my hubby to complain abt it.
He was like "Erm..mebbe u don't look pregnant!"
I was like.."Eh!! Look at my bulging tummy..how can I not look pregnant????!!"
Hubby :"Errr..mebbe u just look FAT!!!!!"
Arghhhhhhh!!!! I'm now in my 3rd trimester, abt 30 weeks pregnant, put on at least 10 kg *sobsob* so far, have a big,jutting tummy AND nobody offers their seat to me in a public bus...and he dares says I merely look fat..bleah..sad!sad!sad!
