Avoid weeping women

Hugo was alarmed. He was now practically certain that this girl was going to cry, and if there was one thing he he disliked it was being with crying girls in a public spot. He would not readily forget the time when a female named Yvonne Something had given way to a sudden twinge of neuralgia in his company not far from Picadilly Circus, and an old lady had stopped and said that it was brutes like him who called all the misery in the world.
