Loudly announce that you're not pregnant you're "just fat" and make it really awkward for everyone

Loudly announce that you're not pregnant you're "just fat" and make it really awkward for everyone

Sometimes you should just take the small victories. you have seat and can relax now.

not exactly a victory since OP clearly stated that she didn't want it in the first place.

People really shouldn't assume someone is pregnant. that's so rude!

You can't stop someone from thinking that. But people should save the embarrassment (on both sides) by not expressing their thought out loud.

here's a thought maybe they were just trying to be nice and it isn't our fault if you carry your weight in the "wrong" places. it may not even be her fault, I guess what I'm saying is don't be so testy.

Not really, what if she really is pregnant and could use some rest? You can never win in todays society no matter what you someone will be offended.

Well, I agree you should offer someone like a pregnant woman or elderly person a seat, but op DID decline when first asked.

Plot twist: OP is a guy

Woa. Mind fucking blown!

Plot twist: the person knew OP was not pregnant, and just wanted to insult her

#15 offering someone a seat seems like an elaborately nice thing to do as a method to insult someone.

I sometimes have dreams where I ask someone if they're pregnant and then they say no and start yelling at me. And then I wake up and start crying

That's when you go back to sleep and slap them for yelling. You have the power now.

You have empowered me!

Instructions unclear: had nightmare about the Russian mafia

Definitely don't want to be slapping the Russian mafia...

I think the matrix has us now!

Don't worry about it. A lot of times people just say things without thinking about it. She clearly meant well when she offered you her seat.

You got a seat in an obviously crowded situation AND made the other person feel pious. They deserved to lose their seat from making assumptions - even if well-intentioned.

If she asked when you were due it would have been more awkward

"Check your privilege, thin oppressor!" - anyone from the fat pride movement

Just sit down and shut up.
