On the train going back to Albany, I turned around to give a dirty look to a hysterical baby. The baby ignored me, but as I turned around to face forward, I made eye contact with the girl sitting across the aisle from me. After that, I noticed her turning to look at me every few minutes. I pretended to sleep.

At the next station, a guy with a guitar got on and sat next to her. They exchanged small talk, and he said something that made her laugh. The baby continued howling, and I started to grind my teeth.
