    Meh. I quite often come across rude, selfish people in public. When it happens, I just forget about it. No point in discussing rude people.

    I tend to agree that the situation could be painted differently by the OP and the other woman. It can be hard to make fair judgment when you haven't witnessed it first hand.

    Tamtam- I would have done the exact same thing as you in this situation. All your responses to posters have been logical and respectful too- sorry the thread went pear shaped.

    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.

    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.

    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.
