Most forms of public transportation encourage commuters to give up their seats to those who might need them more, but Instagram user Yvonne Lin claims that throughout both of her pregnancies, a man never offered his seat on the subway to her -- until now.
Lin explained to DNAinfo that while plenty of women had given up their seats to her over the years, not a single man ever had.
So during the third trimester of her first pregnancy, she began carrying around a thank you card to give to whichever man was the first to do it. When it never happened, she decided to up the reward for her second pregnancy, and had an actual trophy made.
She just gave it away to the gentleman below last Friday!
"He looked up at me and looked super startled and embarrassed, and he immediately stood up and said, 'Please take this seat, I just noticed,'" she told DNAinfo.
Hooray for chivalry!
I'm about 8ish months preggers (again) and I look it. I've been gradually coming to the conclusion that men suck. I didn't get a single subway seat offered to me by a man throughout my first pregnancy. So for the second pregnancy, I had this made and I've been carrying it around everyday - till last Friday. This guy is the winner! #subway #nyc #pregnant #socialexperiment
What do you think about all of this?
@NisforNneka 👎🏼 people celebrating basic human decency as saintliness. You don't get a trophy for giving a subway seat to a pregnant woman.— Suzan Eraslan (@SuzanEraslan) May 19, 2015
