    I think of it as playing the ball, not the man.
    Good point

    Anyone can paint a picture to get the reaction you want. I will reserve my judgement as I wasn't there, so I don't know the tone you or the other woman used.
    I see your point. I actually said I would welcome a reply from the other lady. Which is fine. I didn't use a 'tone'... I was very polite as I have mentioned many times. Moving her pram half a metre would not have been out of her sight.

    I also didn't 'paint a picture' to get a reaction on BH if that's what you're implying.

    Wowser. All I can think in this thread is of my friend, who actually died of cancer when her kids were still babies... her response to both the actual scenario, and the people up in arms about someone commenting about a scenario on a parenting forum would be 'some people need to get a real problem.'

    Tam Tam you did nothing wrong. I move people's prams all the time when they're in the way, and people used to move mine. It's just not a big deal.

    Perfectly put!! This is exactly how I see things on BH sometimes!

    I don't think the thread needs closing or anything but I also don't want to see it become more than it was?? Perhaps we can all just leave it now?

    Just to clarify once again, I never called you a liar....

    My 'childish' comment also was not particularly directed at your post, it was a general comment as everyone seemed to be up in arms about how rude this woman was... Just seemed a bit silly as to how 'big' this topic got so quickly. (As you have also said)

    I prob would have just waited a minute or two untill she or the other person was done. I don't like confrontations and I respect peoples space.

    I'm sorry that you are on the defensive (perhaps due to the mixed feedback you have received). My point was that the situation is subjective, we will all view it differently based on our frame of mind. If the lady involved came and told her story, I'm sure she would paint it in a different light based on how she felt in that situation.
