So today was my third day at my new job (liking it so far). I take the same bus route as I did to my old job, but I go the other way. Today I got off at 5pm and took the 5:30 bus home. At one point I took off my headphones to listen to stop announcements.

The bus was dead silent. I'm used to a bunch of obnoxious teenagers in the back, people chattering into cell phones, and one or two guys with long beards loudly describing their medical problems to total strangers. On the crowded rush hour bus, not one person was making the slightest noise, not even the baby and small child traveling with their mom.

All you could hear was the engine of the bus and the hum of other traffic. It kind of freaked me out a bit. :lol:

Oh, god, that sounds WONDERFUL!

At 8 am I am not in the mood to listen to screaming kids or people with Voice Immodulation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8k2AAMTZKo)

LOL mooncat. It was weird. That's why I always travel with headphones, it helps. Just put on something peaceful and it won't be so bad.

Every parent knows, noise is a good thing.. it's the silence that means trouble! Friend of mine who has young kids ran into a similar situation on her way to work and she said she kept looking to see which kid was into what!

I asked a co-worker of mine who has two young children about what I've heard about parents thinking "quiet" means "find out what the kids are up to NOW". She assures me that's quite true. :)

That can also apply to pets as well.

If the kittens are quiet, I go looking to see where they are. And they are still small enough they can be anywhere - including the towel drawer in the kitchen (which seems to be Pascquinel's favorite hiding spot, BTW.):eek::lol:

Maybe there was a reason. Maybe... you were the only one they hadn't assimilated.

Borg don't try to be quiet though.

It's worse when you have a kid and a kitten and they are both quiet together. Turns out they were under the sink in the bathroom and kitty was about to get a bath he didn't want. So was the kid. Well, at least I'd found them and the loose pipe before the bathroom got flooded.
