"I walk to a priority seat as it was empty and I politely asked this ridiculous prick standing right in front of the seat, to excuse me, so I can sit down.

"He pointed at the reserved seating sign and stared at me wide eyed..

"I said yes, I am pregnant. HE ASKED ME FOR PROOF!?!?!? I said who the hell are you to ask me for proof? Do you want to see my medical bills? My baby's ultrasound pics??

"He replied that I'm not in pregnant wear."

"He then told me to shut up and sit down. I told him he was crazy and that I'm wasting my time even talking to him.

"He stuck out his tongue at me and mocked that I'm going through pre natal stress.

"Furious and Shaking, I screamed at him to F OFF. and he pointed fake guns (his fingers) at my face and walked off."
