My bus route provides some sort of entertainment value on most days. This morning, I was at the center of the drama.
Every morning at my local bus stop, this one crazy lady comes rushing up to the curb and pushes everyone else out of her way so she can scurry on board first and do her makeup sitting down. The first person in line, I was sure I would be able to rest my laurels for the short ride to work. As the bus pulled up, the wacky woman came flying down the block and threw herself in front of the bus making it come to a stop. Irritated by her actions, the bus then moved up leaving her a few steps behind. Not to deter her, she came roaring back and pushed me aside. My bump may not be at the full nine month capacity but it's obvious that I am expecting. To see what happened,
The bus route manager yelled at the woman, "You're going to push the PREGNANT woman out of the way!?" Empowered by his remarks to her, I felt sure she would back up and give me the space to board ahead of her. Stubborn as ever, she went ahead of me while people behind me scolded her actions. Neither of us got a seat right away but karma paid her a visit — after one stop, I found an empty spot while she stood the remainder of the ride.
What would you have done in my situation?
