Pregnant? Old? Stay in seat? Awwww, I dunno

Here's another in a series of CTA haikus by Jen Masengarb.

I can't tell you how many times I asked myself this question.
And stayed in my seat.

give up seat on train?
is she pregnant, is he old?
don't want to be wrong

Chicago haiku no. 35 | December 2010

Now I'm embarrassed for my Internet confession.

  • Trying to figure out whether or not to ask an elderly man if he wants my seat is the worst one for me. Most of the time they are seriously affronted that I, a middle-aged woman, think they're so frail that I need to get up and let them sit down.
