    That sucks op,

    If there were other gazebos free tho, and u really didnt want bubba woken, i probably woulda wheeled him to one of the other ones?

    I know they were inconsiderate and such... But the fact he was woken really seems to have ticked you off...that could have been avoided if you'd moved?

    At first I was thinking that it wasn't that big a deal but after reading further I think they were being rude...there were free spots but they came and invaded yours..it's odd and rude and it has happened to me before (not a sleeping baby but I have 'claimed a spot' by putting all my stuff on it and then gone off to supervise my kids to come back to 4 women all over the top of my stuff and taking up the whole seat at the park that I had 'claimed' (I was meeting friends there). When I went to get my stuff none of them moved or said a word and it was difficult getting my stuff out. It was rude.) It's common courtesy really...if someone has obviously occupied a space then don't push them out because you want that spot. If everywhere is full then be polite and ask if you can share.

    Its kind of like someone using a toilet next to you in a restroom free of vacant ones :-)

    I know what its like with a terrible sleeper and people waking them up, if someone doesnt have to deal with the consequence they don't seem to care or are just plain ignorant. I get furious when it happens. In saying that though I would have moved to avoid my baby being woken.

    If the baby was one that wakes easily then you should have moved the pram so the mothers and toddlers could enjoy the gazebo.
    Hope tomorrow is a better day for you.
    i agree!

    It is weird if there were other places for them to sit, but people in public are generally rude because we all have our different standards of acceptable behaviour. At the risk of being flamed, if I saw someone put shoes on a table, I'd think they were filthy and inconsiderate - people eat and have picnics on tables, so for me that is rude! I personally don't use communal BBQ's, sit on public toilet seats etc. because that's just my thing. We can't expect the general public to behave in a way that is always suitable for us. By the way, I agree with the PP who avoids play areas, mothers groups and stuff for similar reasons. Maybe I need to get the knot out of my knickers too

    If your stuff was on the table, then yes I think they were being selfish. It was being used and they could have sat elsewhere.

    I hate hate hate when you are at a park and you have a table and someone asks if they can sit there.

    I have to change my whole conversation and pretend to be a normal conservative mum, it bloody sucks, find your own table!

    What? There's public toilet ettiquette and you have to leave spaces? I choose the cleanest or the one with the most graffiti to read. I must have been weirding out people like you for years. I thought the whole privacy issue was covered with the cubicle.

    Nup, if there's like twenty toilets empty and you choose the one next to me I'm totally thinking you have issues :P

    I pick my toilet by cleanest. I couldn't care if someone was in the one next to it.

    I just checked with DF and he agreed, ppl who sit in the cubicle next to yours when there are plenty of empties, are strange. One time DF and I stayed in a camp/dorm type place alone, we had the pick of twenty odd cubicles and still sat at opposite ends. There are certain logistics involved in toileting which need to be given space and privacy where possible. Perhaps a spin off is required...
