Please Offer a Seat
(It’s not only polite, it’s the law.)
Just. Get. Up.
There you are, a typical commuter. Earbuds tucked in nicely, listening to your favorite LCD Soundsystem … and look at that, you’re lucky enough to get a seat during the morning rush.
Eight stops into Brooklyn, it’s a packed train and it’s only 8:00. Two stops later you see a pregnant woman.
No, you don’t just see her, she walks right up to your face and her prominent belly is … right there.
But you simply sit and stare as if it’s something you don’t recognize.
Please. Get. Up.
