    Confession

    a 

    Consultant

    Currently on an Amtrak in the quiet car (supposed to be library quiet and if complaints are made about a passenger, they are relocated). A woman chose to sit in this car with her incredibly noisy toddler when there are seats available in other cars. Woman keeps shushing her kid but isn’t putting any other effort into controlling or quieting them. AITA if I complain to the conductor?
