to those who said maybe I just look fat or am not showing, I know what you mean, but no I do look pretty pregnant lol.
i agree there's nothing wrong with asking politely but sometimes you get a vibe off people. When someone literally almost knocks you over to get to a seat do you seriously want to then approach them? I find in Perth sometimes the vibe on different train lines or different bus routes at different times of day is really different.
And sometimes, particularly when I feel plain miserable, it does knock my confidence. So when I have a good day and I feel great I'm like "excuse me please" with a smile and then when I need it most I'm like "oh god I'm not sure I can face this". Ykwim?
as for the pins in London, they are cute but they don't always work either. Some of the tweets in the article are shocking http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/why-i-gave-...e-tube-1527007
