    Oh look. First world problems. For all you know they might have picked there because that's the one their children like and they new the kids would get upset. There could be million reasons. They might have just been so happy and having fun and not really thought about. Or they might have not given a cr@p. But jeepers, it's just a park. This again reinforces why I don't do parks, mothers groups, play centres or anything that have hordes of women. You just cant do it right.

    OP, if I'd have parked my bub, my morning tea and my shoes in one of 6 gazebos, I would assume that anyone seeing that would assume it was being used! I think it is pretty rude, and very annoying for you that your bubba got woken!

    Of course it's not a big deal in the scheme of things, but the OP just came on here to vent about her annoying morning when she went for a lovely walk to get the baby to have a sleep and enjoy a quiet play with her toddler and it didn't go to plan.

    It's not rude. Rude is intentionally doing something to upset her. It's socially a bit odd, but hardly rude. Personally I don't do park mums, so I wouldn't have chosen a used gazebo, but like I said, maybe they just weren't thinking.

I understand that it was a public place, but there were literally 5 other gazebos not being used nearby, one being directly across from the playground. I'm not suggesting it was the end of the world, obviously it was just frustrating at the time. I'd like to believe in common courtesy.
    It's annoying when there is plenty of other places and people sit right on top of you! No such thing as courtesy any more

    Okay maybe not rude, but definitely inconsiderate.

    That's a bit weird, like when the whole train carriage is empty but someone sits right next to you... Sometimes ppl confuse me.

    Yeah the people were weird, rude and annoying.I really don't see how hard it is to see a pram with stuff on a table and think "oh this gazebo is being used", i'll just do the intelligent thing and move to a free gazebo". Its not really , the people were just being totally selfish.

    Im sorry they ruined your day op.

    If you had your things on the table and a pram parked next to it with a sleeping bub then etiquette says that you've claimed the table. Its really odd they'd take a table that was already clearly taken when there were other free gazebos.

    I'd have told them politely that you're using this area, could they please move to another. But I get that sometimes you're so surprised someone's done something that you just let it go.

    If you have a baby that doesn't sleep well its really hard when they're disturbed mid nap.

    At first I thought you were being precious and thought 'it's a public place' but with further info you have provided I think they were in the wrong!

    There were FIVE other free gazebos for them to sit at and you had morning tea and belongings on the table - you had clearly 'claimed' that spot!!

    I would never have sat at a table/spot that had so obviously been taken!!

    When mine were younger and I wanted to do an activity with DS1 and wanted DS2 to sleep I would put DS2 in a carrier, he always slept snuggled up against me, all through noise, while I played with DS1 - just a suggestion for future!

    How frustrating, I hope your baby had a good sleep this afternoon xx
