Can. Someone. Please. Make. That. Baby. Stop. Crying.

No, actually. Babies are notorious for crying as long as they feel like it; adults are known by psychologists to hate the sound of crying babies more than just about any other sound there is; and well, there you are.

It's an age-old dilemma, and its very familiarity may account for the way in which an incident last week on Oregon TriMet's Bus No. 57 has become an international cause célèbre. It is the story of two dozen passengers, more or less, a baby in a bad mood, and a bus that motored through its own terrible little Twilight Zone on the 16 miles from Beaverton to Forest Grove.

The trip ended only when the bus came to a halt, the baby and mom were ordered off the bus, the passengers protested in her defense, the driver suggested they could leave too if they didn't like it, and everybody did.

The only thing worse than a baby that will not stop screaming is a wife that won't stop screaming.

I've heard more than one elderly woman tell me they loved to "hear the sound of a baby crying". vic.gif I'd like it better too if I didn't have to take the crying little turd home with me. I guess 50 years away from child bearing age allows one to put on rose colored glasses even viewing shitty diapers.

I understand old people's view on the liking of babies crying as it strengthens the baby's lungs and also lets you know it's still alive. But this also mostly took place in a house on the farm somewhere before times when you started having to deal with other people's shït in public places 13.gif

If that child was crying because something was wrong, that bus driver could've been in some really deep shït.

Wouldn't that make it look like baby has blood in its stool?
