    Just thought I'd double quote as early on you seemed to agree with my point of view. . Well mostly.
    I'm not defensive. Just explaining myself.
    I'm mature enough to realise there are two sides of the story. Of course. But I thought I did a pretty good job of retelling the story and emphasizing how polite I was in the described situation. I think it's also pretty clear from my posts that I am a polite person as I haven't been rude to anyone here. .. at least I certainly don't think I have.

    I think the discussion has deviated enough from the original point of my post now though. Time to just call it a day. ..agree to disagree and move on.

    Bubhub threads remind me exactly of having a chat with your mates- we're not solving world peace, we're just venting, asking for advice etc.
    Thank you. That's sweet of you to say.

    Easy. I would push them out of the way. Being a man of decent physical size is an advantage.

    Totally justified. The cow shouldn't have parked her gear where it would inconvenience others. Her risk, her fault.

    This is how the conversation would have gone if I was the OP...

    ______
    One mum was blocking the free one with her pram.
    So I politely said, "excuse me, would you mind so I can get to the change area?" Indicating the free station.
    Her response, " um no. .. He'll pee everywhere."
    Me: "I am happy to move the pram if your hands are tied up. Can't go having a waiting line build up while a whole public change station is free.."

    Actually I probably would have just said excuse me at the start and if she didn't move the pram I would have.

    Ok ok it's easier to have a comeback when you are behind a keyboard.

    jeepers, I'd be in trouble if it was me. I would have said "hey, I'll just pop your pram over here a bit so I can get through" and I would have said it as I was moving it. I had no idea that would be offensive to anyone, nor that touching anyone's pram would be offensive!

    I am pretty relaxed about stuff like that though. When my DD2 was about 10 weeks old she was screaming her head off in Aldi while I was trying to pack my groceries. A young bloke, about 23 or thereabouts, came and asked if he could pack my groceries so I could pick up my baby. He then commented that he loves babies, so instead of him packing the groceries, I let him hold DD2 while I continued doing it. I get the distinct impression that is not something a lot of other people would do if they get upset at the idea of someone touching their pram!
