Sometimes, babies cry. If you use public transport, you have to expect that people will bring their children on-board. I take Joe on the bus with me, and I’m sure that at some point, he’ll burst into tears mid-route. I can only hope that when it does happen, the bus driver won’t treat me the same way as this poor mom in Portland, Oregon was treated:
I thought it was interesting that all of the other passengers on the bus left in protest. I think it shows that most people understand that crying babies are a part of life, and kicking a mom and her child off the bus because of it is unacceptable.
