Oh boy. Have you heard about the pregnant woman who was forced to sit on a train's floor because no one wanted to give up their seat during the busy London commute?
Yep. It really happened. Victoria Poskitt is five months along, and while riding in one morning, there were no seats available in the main class, so she opted to plunk down on the floor of the car so she wouldn't have to stand. And understandably, she's upset -- and not just because she wasn't feeling well and figured someone should give up their seat. Apparently this particular train line offers special passes to pregnant women who are more than 20 weeks along, which allow them to sit in the first class car if there are seats available.
Yes ... there were seats up front on the day Victoria was riding, but she still wound up on the floor. And it's because she only rides the train three days a week. To get the pass, you have to have a weekly, monthly, or annual pass. (There's always a catch.)
