Baby in the Chair

A young couple were waiting impatiently to leave on their first vacation since the baby was born. The young mother’s aunt had promised to babysit but was thirty minutes late. The young woman called her elderly aunt to find out what was going on, the old woman apologized for her forgetfulness, and said she’d speed right over.

Since the aunt was only a couple miles away, the couple decided they’d go ahead and go rather than wait for her and risk missing their flight.

Two weeks later when the couple returned they were horrified to find the baby still sitting in the high-chair where they’d left it, except now it was dead and bloated, and covered with flies. The aunt really had sped, and unfortunately crashed and died before she made it over.

Another Version

Should Have Waited

A couple getting ready to go on vacation became late for their flight while waiting for the arrival of the baby sitter they secured for their newborn. The mother called the babysitter who promised that she would be at their house in no more than 5 minutes. The couple raced out the door to make their flight, leaving the baby home thinking it will only be alone for a few moments. Two weeks later when the couple returned they found the baby still in the crib, dead. The couple were devestated to discover that the babysitter got in a car crash while rushing to the house.
