    Default People with prams in shops

    I have noticed sometimes when I am at Big W, Target, K-Mart etc that when you're trying to get past someone with your stroller, they pretend they can't see you and just keep standing in the middle of the aisle. Does anyone else find this happens to them? I find it irritating and just loudly say ''excuse me''! and then they eventually move. Once or twice the person has still ignored me so i've barged past and hit their ankle with the stroller... ''oops, sorry didn't see you there''... funny how they hear you then.

    Ha ha! I think this is me!
    If you can imagine having 3 hours of sleep a night, and then two children screaming at you most of the day, you get pretty good at blocking out the noise/ presence of other people in Big W!
    Why don't you just go down a different isle, that's what I do!

    lol, I normally do, sometimes what I really need to see is in that particular aisle.. Yesterday I was in coles with my ds in the trolley (in the little seat) and a lady had her shopping trolley actually across the aisle, and i had to get past so i waited, and she saw me and ignored me, then i said excuse me, and she still looked at me and ignored me, so i just moved her trolley myself.. lol.

    I don't think you should have to go down a different isle..saying "Excuse me can I please pop through"..should be enough ...

    Lol, this is me. I'm in half awake mode, ignoring the world, trying to remember where I am and what I'm looking for.

    I have a theory that the second you step behind a pram and start pushing you instantly are regarded as, at best, a nuisance and at worst, a second class citizen.

    Yes, this! It's funny because I noticed with Dd and now with this pregnancy, I can basically part the sea with my belly ie the crowds just seem to move out of my big belly's way. But as soon as that baby is out of you belly and in a pram, BAM 2nd class citizen. Even old ppl shove in front of you assuming you'll be slow (which is strange because in reality I'm much faster with baby in pram vs baby in belly!).

    Absolutely bada. I was constantly amazed at the people who would just walk across in front of me when I was pushing the pram with one hand and holding a screaming baby in the other.

    I hate when they're pushing a pram, see something they want to look at down a side aisle, so walk towards the aisle but swing their pram out sideways so it blocks the main walkway like a dam.

    Annoys me as much as when people suddenly stop and turn around with no warning. They don't check over their shoulder before they spin around and walk in the opposite direction. How many times they've knocked into me and given ME a dirty look and an "Excuuuuseeee me!"
