What IS the deal with the douchebags?

I just think that people don't effing get it.  My wife is pregnant.  And not the kind of pregnant where people tell you that randoms just come up and rub their bellies when you are thinking i can't even tell….how the hell do strangers know….do you wear a sign?….do you frequent parts of town cumbered with Miss Cleo's and Dionne Warwicks? but you just nod.  No, she is a small person and is now 8+ months pregnant.  You can tell.  If I knew how to work a damn camera, I'd put up a picture to prove my point.  But then maybe she'd massacre me, so we're probably better off.

My sister-in-law has been long chronocling the stupidity of people 'round other, more pregnant people.  People are ALWAYS making stupid-ass comments.  Whoa, when are you due?  You're gonna pop any minute now!  That's gonna be a big boy!  Are you sure you're gonna make it? etc. etc. etc.  That's not helpful.  The best thing to do is smile and give a sympathetic look.  Or, don't be a dick.  Unfortunately for my wife, she doesn't ever seem to run in to those thoughtful people. 

My wife works downtown and we live on the SW side of the city, so she takes public transit a lot.  The Metra is usually okay.  Props to the Metra.  People on the Metra are usually nice, if you avoid the obnoxious high school kids taking it home from school.  (for the record, I like H.S. kids.  When they have to listen to me.  They tend to be much less exciting when they're cut loose on the world)  However, sometimes, she has to take the el.  A very full el.  On where she'll get on, and then, realizing it's very full, look around for any seat left open, next to any crazy because dammit, she's carrying another EFFING PERSON!

And often times, no one moves.  No one offers a seat.  People look, and then look the other way obviously pretending that they didn't see her standing there so they don't have to give up their precious plasticine temporary ass-parking-spot.  Seriously!?

I know you people are different.  You are nice people.  Yes, pregnancy is a choice, so I understand on some level the people that disagree with the expectant mother parking spots (although you had a damn mother at some point and wouldn't you have wanted her to not walk as far?  Huh?  Maybe would've saved a couple of your precious brain cells, douche).  But once you are pregnant, it's a person INSIDE you.  That's heavy.  Plus, there's all the other stuff in and around there.  And it's possible they could have kidney stones, or sciatica, or flesh-eating-syphillis, so give them a DAMN SEAT.  Be respectful.  Did your parents teach you NOTHING AT ALL?!?!?!?!?!      

bastards.

  1. People are morons. I have decided that pregnancy sends off special pheromones that make people around you stupid.

  2. You’re right, people are douchebags. But not me. Your wife can have my seat. Send her over.

  3. My thoughts exactly. Thank you.
