Tales Of A Lone Adventurer 03

Some weeks back, I watched a couple board the bus with their baby in a stroller. The couple didn't fold the stroller and just wheeled it down the aisle to the rear seats. The man sat in front of me and his wife diagonally opposite. I had a clear view of the baby. The man asked his wife in Mandarin where she wanted to alight. She replied "At the next MRT station".

A few minutes later, the man pressed the buzzer to stop the bus. Immediately his wife told him off "Not this bus stop! The next one!". The man replied "Correct wanted to stop at the MRT station, right?" His wife replied "The next bus stop is nearer to the MRT station!"

Here comes the amusing part.

Woman to baby: "You see lah, daddy can't even follow simple instructions."
Man to baby: "Your mother is unreasonable, I tell you. Just now that bus stop also can one."
Woman to baby: "Don't listen to him."

I wonder what the baby was thinking at that time:

The couple alighted at the next bus stop and in my opinion, it was equidistant to the MRT station as the previous stop.
