    Where on earth could she have possibly be going in such a hurry anyway? If she said "excuse me" and realised you hadn't heard, then why not just say it again? You don't touch someone else's child, unless they are in danger!

    I like to walk on travelators if I'm in a rush, but often you can't get past people. BIG DEAL. I would never impatiently grab someone's limb to move them out of the way!

    She was out of line touching your child.

    How rude, I get so angry when people push past me with the pram on escalators. Like seriously? You can't just wait 30 seconds? If its clear, walk away but if it's blocked especially by a pram or trolley I think they should just wait.

    I always feel lazy on them if I'm not walking, and I like the feeling of going fast for minimal effort! I am happy to wait if someone is in front of me though. Then they are the lazy ones blocking the way!

    Totally agree op, they should not of grabbed your son. They should have just waited if they couldn't be bothered to get your attention.

    This.

    I'd have been furious! From behind she was in no position to tell if your dons leg was out for a reason. She needed to speak to you, not touch the child!

    She had no excuse to touch your child in that way! Even if she did say excuse me and you weren't able to hear travelators aren't that long! She would of had to wait an extra 20 seconds. Impatient people really irk me!

    It's very rude to push past like that. Excuse me on its own is just an attention grabber anyway, not permission to push past. It might be, 'excuse me, may I pass?' or 'excuse me you dropped something', or 'excuse me your hair is on fire'.

    I hate it when people touch my dd, she has a huge fear of strangers so it never goes down well! Its never appropriate to touch a normal stranger but people seem to think that touching children and pregnant womens bellies is absolutely fine.

    I would have said something too. Normally if im in a hurry on those things I say excuse me and if they dont hear I say it louder so they can.
    They arent for walking on. Thats why the trolleys have magnets on the bottom. (And to keep from running away)

    I would be annoyed too, but I would have probably made sure that my child wasn't being an inconvenience to others (with his legs touching either side so she couldn't squeeze past).

    I would never grab some random kid (certainly not in that situation anyway!) but I do understand the frustration when people are blocking your path and you have to get past quickly. I was actually blocked by heaps of people today - I finish at 5.30 and have to get to daycare by 6.30. Without traffic, it's a 1/2 drive away... and then there's the 10 min walk to my car.

    People sometimes do have places to be... they're not just rushing for the fun of it.
