Was taking Metra home today and saw something that blew my mind. I looked up and ahead of me by about 6 feet from where I was sitting was pregnant woman who was stuck standing on the train. I was able to have someone get her attention (she was closer to the door than I was sitting) and offered her my seat. She said yes and thanked me.
I was disappointed and shocked that no one seated closer to her than I was had made the same offer. Seriously what is wrong with people today, at the least some dudes should have already extended the offer before she ever got up to where I was sitting. I know we all like to look at our phones but come on people.
I hope we have finally reached peak selfishness in the US at this point.
