Q: Pregnant woman's request for seat on bus refused by kid with this. Smart kid?

http://baijiahao.baidu.com/s?id=1578777791896096244&wfr=spider&for=pc

 

Pregnant woman asks,  'I am carrying a baby and it is very tiring, may I have your seat?'

 

Kid says, 'I attended classes all day and it is very tiring too', then continue to play video games.

 

Shrug it off as --- this is china?

i love the way other people in the picture are watching and not bothering to offer the pregnant woman their seat when lazy child refused. Did she ask them too?

 

However, given that most parents force their child to study 24/7 with little rest time, it could be reasonable that the child was exhausted too.

 

did the pregnant woman then ask anyone else for their seat or just pick on someone who was smaller than her?

Actually I find it hard to believe that nobody offered their seat.
From whst I've seen even in China there are still some people with a concept of doing the right thing. Even on a bus it would be responsible to think 1 or 2

It's a hard dilemma, carrying life is exhausting, but the woman chose to be pregnant or to stay pregnant. Meanwhile, the boy did not choose to study for so many hours everyday that it's exhausting. So they both have a point.

What I can't stand are young and healthy adults or teenagers who do not give their seat to pregnant women or the elderly. I wonder how such people will feel when they are old, or when the girls are pregnant, and no one gives them a seat.

But since most Chinese seem to have zero self-awareness, they will most likely blame it on everything and everyone else.but themselves.

I think the kid was wrong,because the person who made the kid to see our mother eath is the mother.Mothers should be respected regardless of what ever circumstances or difficulties which we may have come across during the day because mothers are special people

Smack the rude little shit in the head, and drag him off the seat! His version of 'exhausted' is vastly different to hers, and he's FAR more capable of holding himself up if the bus goes AoT. Besides which, the little shit has been sitting down all day.... enough of that crap! Not to mention, being rudely disrespectful of another (elder) and her condition...

 

As for the photos - they don't make any sense! Who's the pregnant woman (no-one in the first and last photos looks even remotely similar... and in the first and last, the handles are yellow, but in the middle photo they're blue.... stock photos!

 

And, yes, as mentioned above... why did said pregnant woman have to ask someone, instead of people offering up their seat??? oh, yeah... TiC. 

 

(btw, back home, the bus drivers would actually tell the kids off in this situation, and make them give up the seat, if it were ever required (not that it's likely to be).
