    Well from now on when I go to the toilet i'm picking the one next to someone. One day I hope to be going to the toilet next to you. You know what's really fun when you start talking to the person next to you. Or start asking them to pass you some toilet paper.



    Op I think they were rude. More then likely the sort of mums that think they own that spot. I would have gone up and sat down with them and started talking over the top of them.

    Our shoes were on top of a enviro bag, not actually on the table I should have been more specific.

    meh, I would put the shoes on the table..

    anyone who would eat off the tables without putting a mat down, would be weird IMO...lol.

    I'm going off topic, but just a tip: Chubbasmummy: I always take a bottle of vinegar and foil with me when we plan on using a public BBQ.. Just turn it on and pour the vinegar over the grill, screw the foil up into a ball and give it a scrub before cooking on it. The heat and vinegar will kill off any germs. Or, just cook your food on top of a piece of foil.

    OP, I'd be p!ssed if someone took my spot, sleeping baby or not! It would have been clear that it was taken. Yes, it's a public spot, but there's common sense and respect.

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


    Or you could just spice up the conversation and hopefully scare 'em off, LOL

    Public toilets I just go for the cleanest, if it is next to the only other person in the toilets so be it! I never thought anything of that and this is the first time I've heard that it is weird

    a dunny is a dunny
    a seat is a seat
    !!

    as for the gazebo, sometimes they are great opportunities to meet other mums and have a good chat, especially if you are on your own.
    but i'm a glass half full girl....

    Same. Cleanliness is my top priority in public toilets (some of them are completely feral!) If they're all the same then I'd probably choose one away from other people, but its not something I normally think about. Cubicles are pretty anonymous.

    I only use public toilets as a last resort anyway. The smell in some is enough to make me hold on for longer than I thought humanly possible.
