Her son had a medical condition and needed to sit down on a crowded bus because he felt unwell. However, she was accused of being obnoxious by another passenger. Here is what the woman had to say:
She Took Her Son On The Bus
The woman said, Alright, so my 17-year-old son has weekly therapy appointments that I take him to. ” Unfortunately, my husband let our daughter borrow his car and then had an emergency at work, so he had to use my car, so my son and I had to take the bus.”
He Had A Medical Condition
Her son had a condition that sometimes caused him to forget to eat, and that morning was no exception. The mother, busy and preoccupied, didn’t manage to ensure he had breakfast.
She Found Him A Seat
The bus wasn’t overly crowded, but all seats were taken. Given her son’s condition, she quickly spotted an opportunity when a seat became vacant and seated him. She rummaged through her bag to find a chocolate bar, attempting to alleviate his dizziness and hunger.
Someone Asked Him To Move
While focused on her son, she became aware of an elderly woman and her adult daughter standing nearby. The daughter tapped her shoulder and asked if her son could give up his seat for her mother.
She Was Worried Her Son Would Faint
The woman explained, “I felt really bad; I really did, but my son was not doing great, and standing would make it harder. I had found the chocolate, and he was eating it slowly, but if he stood up right then, I can assure you he would’ve fainted.”
Her Explanation Fell On Deaf Ears
With an apology, she explained her son’s condition, hoping for understanding. However, the daughter’s response was dismissive, claiming that she had seen the boy stand earlier and that he was young and healthy. Despite another apology and clarification, the daughter persisted, asserting that the elderly woman was tired.
She Was Worried About Her Son
As her son leaned against her, struggling to maintain his balance, she held her ground. Apologizing once more, she indicated that her son’s well-being was her primary concern and encouraged them to ask someone else for a seat.
They Were Angry At Her
The woman said, “I then heard them both whispering and calling me entitled. And when we got off the bus, a woman that got off with us said that a teenage boy can handle standing more than an elderly woman can and that she hopes someone treats me like that when I’m her age. My son was so out of it, I don’t think he even noticed or cared.”
Was The Woman In The Wrong?
The woman, who clarified she wasn’t sitting down, was left questioning if her actions had put her in the wrong, and so she turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “You handled it the same way I would have, politely explaining that your son wasn’t feeling well and needed to sit. I’m sure there were many other people they could have asked, and many other people that could have offered, so I’m not sure why they felt the need to pick on you and your son.”
Another Person Commented
“Having an “invisible” illness is the pits. For just this very reason. I too get these crashes on occasion, and there’s no choice to it. If I don’t sit down and get something in me, a Gatorade if nothing else, I will pass out.”
