How many prams fit into one bus?

Since a few weeks, the little one’s music group takes place at a different location and we have to take the bus and then another bus in the morning to get there. Wouldn’t be too difficult, you’d think, but we are recently facing kind of a space issue here.

Imagine a normal bus. With a space for wheelchairs and/or prams, about 2,5 meters long. When the little one and I enter the bus, our two friends are already on board. Which equals two buggies. Now its our turn: we enter the bus with the hobbit’s pram. Which fits exactly next to the two buggies, but now all the space is taken.

Everything would be fine if another mother of the music group wouldn’t have moved to our village a few weeks ago. So she enters the bus as well. With a buggy. Somehow, we squeeze together and it’s still doable. Unless there is not another pram coming.

Next station: jackpot! There is not only another buggy waiting for the bus, but also a twin pram! And you know what? We still manage to squeeze everyone inside the bus. Just to recall: we are now parking four buggies, one pram and one twin pram inside the vehicle. On the bright side: we don’t even have to move anymore when the bus stops. Noone is able to get passed us anyway.

Three bus stops later ALL of us leave the bus. We are now all waiting for the second bus to come while hoping that one of the other buggy/pram owners will maybe hopefully possibly have another destination?

(Needless to say that ALL of us are getting on the same bus because ALL of us have the same destination. And not just on one day. No. Every Friday. At the exact same time.)


About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
