Two distinct women choose to share their experiences with a similar circumstance on Reddit. Now that the stories have gone viral, users can’t stop talking about them.

However, a man in business dress seated beside the lady placed his hand on the vacant seat. He allegedly told her that the seat was “occupied” and that her pregnancy wasn’t “his problem” when she requested him to move his hand.
Users on Twitter and Reddit applauded both women for sharing their bus experiences on social media.
“You’re truly hurt and in need of a seat,” one said, defending the young girl who refused to give up her seat. If the person in front of you was so sympathetic to the pregnant woman’s desire to sit down, they should have offered their seat instead of forcing you to.”
