About nobility and attentiveness of

Ya faced it for the first time when carried the sister, on the eighth month of her pregnancy, from hospital. We went in the afternoon, and I hoped that in the subway there will be not really a lot of people. But here, for some reason, the number of people throughout the day does not change. Maybe the mankind does not work at all, and for days on end drives about in the subway?.

And so, we squeeze into the car, I try to cover with a back her huge stomach that God forbid, somebody did not touch. There are no empty seats. She raises a hand and undertakes a hand-rail, at the same time her stomach hangs before a nose of the man sitting opposite. I am sure that he, of course, now will get up to give way to the pregnant woman. The train starts. He sits, considering people in the train, diligently ignoring the stomach hanging over it.

I Watch

with hope for other men who occupy all long sofa in the car. And here I understand that if they also noticed the pregnant woman, then no noble thoughts visited them. Frankly speaking, I did not expect such situation in any way and from consciousness of the powerlessness I was ready to begin to cry!

What it, really is not clear how it is heavy to stand with a ten-kilogram paunch, having lifted up one hand up to hold a hand-rail and to try not to fall, and another, grabbing a stomach when the child kicks you under edges so what intercepts breath?!! To hell gallantry, where elementary sympathy?!!

Some woman, being going to leave, invites the sister to take her place. The sister slowly falls by a seat... But suddenly from crowd the man jumps out average years, pushes away it, flops in a chair and closes eyes...

Here it is a bright example of the law of the jungle. Who is stronger - that and won...

It is so sad that there is a wish to shout!

“And that here strange, it was necessary to ask that gave way, and just like that of course nobody will concede“ - one familiar lady who however, having been too in the family way, does not hurry to take this advice told me, and just on the way to work passes several metro stations in the opposite direction to take the place at terminal station...

the Answer to a question why so occurs, I found. Seventh month of my happy pregnancy. Having reached for the first time the last month prior to the subway, I try to take a vacant place. Suddenly from where - that appears the woman of years 50, probably with the grandson, twelve-year-old fat “peanut“, and takes the place, so desired for all. Having put him to itself on knees, she meets the eyes of me, and, shrugging shoulders, does sochuvstvuyushche the apologizing gesture: “Sorry, of course, but you see I with the small child“.“ The peanut“ smiling, looks at me...

Probably, this grandmother when grows old, will be surprised very strongly why the youth does not concern to her with due consideration and sympathy and why nobody concedes it, old and sick, places in public transport.

Now me it is clear to

that there will be such grandmothers so far, attentiveness and sympathy to similar will be inaccessible to their grandsons...
