Some of the supermarkets around here in New England have not only expectant mothers' parking but mothers with infants parking. Needless to say, those spots are usually never full in the evening as the housewives tend to do their shopping during the day.

There are handicap spaces at the hardware store.

The point was that there aren't "expectant mothers" spaces at the hardware store.

There aren't 'expectant mother' spaces at the tavern, either.

Sorry, skee!


I'll self-tar when I'm done working, so this won't happen anymore.

Apparently I'm really bad at identifying sex online.

Yep.  I can't believe you thought I was a dude until I became your internet girlfriend.

Confession: when we started internet dating, I still thought you were a dude. But I'm only slightly disappointed, don't worry.

You're asking for it....

give it to him.

Pregant people can walk- and can stand. If they couldn't then they would be on bed rest or not on the subway at all. I loved people being extra-nice to me while I was pregant but I wasn't handicapped and I didn't deserve any special treatment- if anything, I needed to stay active.

Same can be said of people with a leg cast, or "woman carrying her infant".

Why didn't you give her your seat?

Or is that a man's job?

Why didn't you give your death stare to any of the women?

That's pretty bad I guess, but also in the sense that it's just an indicator of the larger level of apathy and inconsideration that people have for one another (I don't know if that sentence made any sense but I don't care).

Today when I was on the subway, this lady was getting ready to get out of her seat to get off at the next stop, and this guy charges towards her seat from about 15 feet away, positioning himself to take her seat as soon as she got up. There were 5-6 people closer to the prospectively empty seat (including me) but the guy decided it was his seat. It was quite odd, though, the way this guy kind virtually went right up to the woman and slipped into the seat as soon as she got up. He was staring at the seat the entire time, indicating that he had staked his claim to it....weird.
