Here's a classic case of "do you have the baby?" "No, I thought you had the baby". Which is exactly what happened earlier this week to parents in Germany.
While getting out of a taxi after their ride home from the hospital, the couple tended to their one-year-old child and paid the driver, who drove off. Only then did they realize they were short with their headcount. The father tried chasing down the cab to no avail. The driver, who then went to lunch, later learned he had the back seat stowaway after his next passenger pointed the baby out. DOH!
Thankfully, all worked out and the child was reunited with the family.
