A New York man is now the proud recipient of the #1 Decent Dude Award because of a simple act of kindness on the subway.

  • Yvonne Lin is eight months pregnant with her second child and commutes for an hour on the subway every day.
  • She noticed during her last pregnancy that only women would give up their seat so she could sit down.
  • This time around, she made an award for the first man to offer her his seat.
  • Yvonne though she wasn't going to give it out before she had her baby, but she finally met the first "decent dude" eight months into her pregnancy.
