It's one thing to yield to folks pushing a baby stroller, that's fine. However, it's another thing when someone's barreling through a crowd and aggressively using a baby carriage like a cow catcher. I see this happening more all the time. It's my contention that people are having babies just so they can cut a swathe and enjoy quicker access to things in the hustle of an urban environment. You wouldn't dare stand in the way of an oncoming perambulator. No, that would make you a roguish cad. And that's where the limitless sense of entitlement while strolling babies gets its nefarious start. It begins quite innocently, but the baby "pusher" soon learns of his/her power --how to make people melt, as the toddler fleeces purses and wallets; how to get to the front of any line just by blindly cutting ahead at 80 mph, etc.
When will the madness ever end?
