What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 8 – The Crying Baby Dilemma

19 Apr

You’re in a group of eight people including your husband and your two older children, a boy aged twelve and a girl aged ten. There’s zombies nearby and you’re trying to keep as quite as possible so they don’t know you’re there as you creep away. Then your youngest child, a nine-month-old baby, starts to whimper. It’s quiet now but you know it’s a prelude to crying that’s only going to get louder and louder until it attracts the attention of the zombies. You have two other children to think about and the rest of the group but no matter what you do the child won’t stop crying. What do you do?*

As always, this dilemma is just here to make you think, so there’s no right or wrong answer. Vote in the poll to let others know what you do if you were in this situation, and if you want to give a more detailed answer, leave a comment on this posting.

*This dilemma originates in an episode of M*A*S*H, or at least that’s where I first remember coming across it (I could be wrong on this front so don’t quote me on that!).
