    A travelator is a moving ramp - so like an escalator but no steps.

    They are flat escalators designed for shopping centres and the trolleys. No steps.
    In airports they are flat and I agree with pp that the airport ones are for people to walk on. Shopping centre ones being sloped are designed for standing still.

    For sure, if you have a pram or trolley, stay put But perhaps stay put to one side so others can pass? Just a thought. Obviously this isn't always possible.

    Correct. There are actually signs on them that say no prams. Unfortunately more often than not the centre I go to has the lift out of order so I have no choice but to use it. I hate it though, the first time I used it with my pram the front wheel got caught at the bottom and completely freaked me out. I now have to make sure to tilt the front wheel up before the end.

    I do agree though that the woman shouldn't have touched your child.

    When I am in shopping centres in general, I have found that people often say "excuse me" and then proceed to barge through a small gap. I think the correct and polite way to behave is to say excuse me and then wait for the person to move. If they do not, then perhaps say excuse me again or give a very soft pat on the shoulder. Saying one "excuse me" is not an excuse to barge through and knock someone.

    I also find it extremely impolite when someone barges into a lift or a train before I have exited. So rude.

    I agree, a tap on your shoulder probably would have been what i'd done. Id also be pretty annoyed ur kid was blocking the thing and you were obviously oblivious about it but all that person had to do was us her friggen common sense to get ur attention, not touch your child. Some people are just $hit.

    Sorry you had a crappy morning.

    No matter how much of a rush someone is in, and regardless of if they said excuse me, it's never ok to touch someone else's child. I would have been fuming

    I'm one that likes to walk past, but I stop if there isn't room to pass without touching someone. I would never say "excuse me" and ask someone to move - exception - if I was running and time was really an issue (eg trying to catch a bus) then I might, but not if I was just walking.

    This. My poor DS2 would have had a complete and utter meltdown if a stranger touched him like that. I would gave gone off my nut.

    I have a pram and 2 kids walking with me. Keeping us all to the left is just not possible.

    All the travelators I've ever used have not been wide enough for someone to squeeze past a pram (or trolley) and I'd be pretty peeved if someone tried given I'm usually holding the pram trying to stop it rolling down. How rude.
