Damn laughing baby!

According to The Australian, a woman and her 13 month-old daughter were kicked off a public bus because the baby was laughing too loud. Toni Hay and her child were riding a Darwin Bus Service vehicle and the bus driver (clearly a peach) warned Toni that her giggling daughter would need to quiet down. She tried to distract Little Miss Laughing Diapers but to no avail and the female bus driver pulled over and gave them the boot.

WOW. This story initiates so many questions. Like:

1.  How much of a &$(@&^@ grump are you that you hate LAUGHING babies?
2.  How much of a &$%@*@( grump are you that you would kick a woman and a BABY off a bus? I don’t care if that baby is Rosemary’s, its head would need to be spinning before you kick a BABY off a bus.
3.  Toni Hay, we need to send you to either Jersey Shore or Real Housewives of Australia and toughen you up, doll. You do not get off the bus and walk home with your baby!
4.   How quickly can we hire the Darwin Bus Service to come and clean up some of the monstrosities of bullsh*t we have in the US? Because if no tolerance for laughing wee ones AND you have the balls to kick a baby off a bus, you can certainly do a little something about some common social ailments we have over here in which a small sampling would include:
·         Before mentioned Jersey Shore. All of them. They suck.
·         Real Housewives of, well, pick a city.
·         D-bags who talk loudly on their cell phones in confined spaces like elevators, trains, restaurant bathrooms, movie theaters.
·         Grown men who wear their jeans down below their arses.
·         Idiots who talk on their cell phones when driving and can’t drive well to begin with. And can’t spell ‘cell phone’ so how did they find their way to the cell phone store in the first place?
·         People who make sex tapes of themselves and pretend they have NO idea how the “secret tapes” got out (left out on counter with large sign pointing to “secret sex tape” or dropped in Blockbuster video drop “by accident”) but are certainly happy to ride their 15 minutes of horribly-induced fame.
·         The one person behind you in line at the airport loudly complaining about the line taking tooooo long, and why does he have to take his shoes off, and why does he have to get cavity searched? Listen, no one loves the new rules but guess what, if you want to fly, shut your trap. And stop being so loud because we don’t want the friendly people from TSA to think we are with you and get cuffed.

That is so ridiculous. I wouldn't have budged! Since when did laughing become a crime?

Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog? said...

Agreed. Agreed!!!!!

On so many levels, agreed.

I am still in shock that he threw a baby off the bus for laughing!!Seriously.. someone apparently is in need of a Midol and a tampon.

Mutual admiration fests broadcast on national TV.

Oh yeah...I would've been one livid mommy. Lawsuit for sure!

Dark Mother said...

Fist pump to that! = )

Intense Guy said...

Someone kicked someone off a bus...? for having a laughing baby??

My mind blew a fuse and I can't think of a "come back".

But your list of what they could do here in the States is only a start.

*blinks eyes in amazed disbelief*

I'm with ya! Let's get rid of all those assholes!

Pricilla said...

My heavens...if it were screaming it would be one thing, but laughing?

Unless she had just lost a baby or something. That's the only thing I can think of for the behavior.

Kristina P. said...

Well, I'm pretty sure the laughing was a decoy for when the baby was going to blow up the bus with grenades, so I can see it.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

The driver defintely needs to be sent over here to deal with those guys that wear their pants under their ass. That is just nasty!

Ed said...

Nice rant. I'm impressed "Jenny Leery".

Kicking babies is wrong.

Punching, that's okay.

But no one kicks babies anymore.

You can kick midgets, but not babies.

Unless it's a midget dressed as a baby.

I wouldn't have moved an inch! Ms Hay definitely needs to grow a pair of girl balls and should have stood her ground, so to speak.
Absolutely what kind a of a grumpy jerk doesn't like a laughing baby!?

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Thank goodness the baby was crying!
<><

Princess said...

What kind of souless miserable person doesn't warm to a laughing baby? That bitch should be put down. Out of her misery.

Eva Gallant said...

What kind of jerk doesn't join in the laughter of a laughing baby! They're contagious! (the laughing babies, that is!) The bus driver should be fired!

Green Monkey said...

thats ridiculous!

I just told these two toddlers the story, and they can't stop talking about it...

I am glad you mentioned those housewives. They give that term a bad rap. Real housewives don't get in fistfights at clubs, wear make-up to bed, and pay little attention to their children. Housewives everywhere should be up in arms about these ridiculous women. Oh, and yeah, dumb to kick off a laughing baby. (I apparently needed to get the housewife thing off my chest. LOL!)

KittyCat said...

That's all kinds of jacked up

DaisyGal said...

oh Jenny, you are so right. Since when does laughter induce HATE? honestly?

I would rather listen to a little girl giggle all day than listen to an idiot on his phone, or a that guy in airport or the dingbat behind me at Atlanta Bread yesterday, who would not shut up as other people were ordering. Where is the Bus Driver for these selfish, self absorbed people?

Maria said...

What a sourpuss! What kind of living thing is UPSET over the laughter of a child?

Perhaps our Aussie friend is need of some pharmaceuticals to make her more human?

J.J. in L.A. said...

What would the bus driver have told the mom to do if the baby was crying...to kill her?

Jeez, take a chill pill, lady!

Pollyanna said...

"Grown men who wear their jeans down below their arses."

Why did that need to be qualified with "grown men"? Really, anyone who walks around with their pants below their butts should have said butt kicked.

Well, I guess I won't be such a grump and say "anybody" - I'll be a peach and give a pass to toddlers & babies. Little tushies are just so cute :)

I wonder what would have happened if the mother refused to budge?

Totally too sad and maddening. A baby's laughter is one of those precious moments in life. Hope the bus driver gets one--a life.
