Yet another public transport rant!

Dear Selfish nobhead,

If you insist on standing in the pushchair section of the bus next to a buggy, for goodness sake, hold onto the hand rails so you don't fall on top of my daughter.

Thankfully you didn't hurt her and just scared both her and me but next time your victim might not be quite so lucky.

Also, please refrain from swearing like an old fish wife in front of children. My little one is like a parrot and keeps saying two of the profanity's you spat at me. How I will stop her before she gets on the webcam to her grandparents is beyond me.

Thank you for taking my points on board and thinking next time you are on a bus.

Mimi and mini-mimi.

And that apply also on those who think your stroller is something to hold on.

Did you answer her back?

It was a him and it was just before we needed to get off so not much time. I just told him very calmy that he should be more careful and to watch his mouth infront of children. The best bit was when we got of the bus and mini-mimi announced at the top of her voice, "OW! Naughty man. Time out!"

This is appalling. I cannot fathom that he swore at you and Mini when he was at fault.

Next time karma might get him and he could be falling into the guy mentioned here.

I know. He literally fell on top of her, dropping his phone that he was talking on at the time, scuttled around to grab it and launched a load of abuse. I just checked on the little one and soothed her before staring at him with a blank face (my famous stony stare, normally reserved for two year olds tantrums) and then told him what I said above.

Idiot.
