My last Ob/Gyn appointment was last week-ish...I adore my doctor...she is way fab. HOWEVER...she is a member of a big practice, a busy practice. A very busy practice.
When I showed up for my appointment 20 minutes early, their modest sized waiting room was full - not a chair for me to sit in. However, there were roughly 8 or 9 men sitting with their pregnant wives/girlfriends. I'm not going to lie, I didn't expect any of these men to get up to let me sit down - I don't exactly look pregnant yet. And unfortunately, chivalry is not something I experience out in the "real world." So I just stood there...leaning up against the wall...reading a magazine.
THEN. A freaking HUGELY pregnant woman waddled in....clearly 8 or 9 months pregnant...swollen...smiling...and totally adorable. To my HORROR none of the men budged....they just played on their fancy cell phones or read ESPN. AND none of their wives/girlfriends elbowed them to get the hell out of the way to let the very pregnant woman have a seat. WHATTHEHELL! Finally someone got called in and she found a seat.
I called Tommy immediately after my appointment to tell him what a good man he is - he is the kind of guy who gives up his seat.
