    You get rude people everywhere, but in my experience they are *far* outnumbered by polite smiley friendly people so its not going to upset my day

    Like the lovely woman who insisted on paying for my dd2's ride the other day 'for the sake of her grand-niece'. Just a totally random stranger who picked us for some reason, she really brightened my day.

    I was in rivers one day with DD in her special needs stroller. A lady chucked the ****s at me and yelled at me for having DD in the store. She was swearing and everything. So glad i stood up for myself, and a lot of other shoppers came up to me to comfort me. Some people obviously hate prams/strollers??

    If the pram really doesn't fit in the aisle because it's big, I don't mind and I'm happy to walk the other direction or go into that aisle when that person leaves. If they have a pram like the mountain buggy's and there's room for another person to pass by then that ticks me off. I just think that the person is a selfish, stuck up person who thinks they're more important than anybody else.
    I make sure I move my pram to allow other people through when I can so I'd expect others to do the same. It's common courtesy.

    They honestly may not have noticed you! And if they're elderly they may not have great hearing. My father is completely deaf in one ear and if you're on the wrong side of him he simply can't hear. Clipping his ankle as you pass in pay back would be really mean, and with an older person can be dangerous. My point is you don't know someone else's circumstances so try not to take it too personally if they don't jump out the way of your pram.

    I just say 'excuse me' in a friendly voice, and if they don't move, I make sure they can see me (might move to the side, make eye contact and say 'excuse me, can I get through please?) and that does the trick.

    If they were someone who was really, really weird and actually looked at me and said 'no' as if looking for an argument then I'd just go a different way. So not worth fighting about. (And shopping centre fights are not a good look). Honestly, life's too short to worry about stuff like this.

    Oh yes, people like this make me stabby.

    It's like, really? You REALLY need to stop right here in this busy walkway to have your annual catch-up with someone you haven't seen in a while? You cannot just move to the side?

    Oh yes! Or you're pushing the pram along and someone will walk straight across in front of the pram!

    Not sure ramming someone is the best idea.
    I have been pushing a pram for the last seven years, in this time I have come across a few inconsiderate idiots. I find being polite actually works a whole lot better than being aggressive.

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!).
    Wow, people are considerate of a pregnant woman? We obviously don't live in the same area!
