People here are generally not very gracious to strangers. I can count the number of times when someone gave up his/her seat for me in buses and trains when I was pregnant. Believe me, that number does not exceed the number of players in a soccer team!
Most of the time, people just close their eyes or look away or pretend to be doing something else when a pregnant lady or elderly or disabled person boards the bus or train.
"Give way to you?? NEVER!"
I have experienced being almost knocked into by cyclists, even when I was carrying Osh Osh (be it that he was in my belly or in my arms!) on numerous occasions. I've also lost count of the number of times I've heard these loud annoying bicycle bells warning me to get out of their way or else, I'm to suffer their "wrath". These cyclists always seemed to be in a rush to get to their destinations.
One question which I often ask DH is why can't they cycle on the grass? DH's normal reply is because they don't want their bicycle wheels to get dirty!
