    Really? I've moved other peoples' prams at times, and other people have moved mine. Only in certain circumstances, where it's clear that the pram's in the way and the owner doesn't have a free hand to move it. It's never been a problem.

    Oh, how rude! I would be annoyed too OP.

    She could have been polite and provided an 'I'm so sorry I'm in the way I'll just be a minute' or similar! It's easy to be polite!

    How rude. Some people need to learn the world doesn't revolve around them.

    When my son started rolling gee his wee would go everywhere and changing him was a 2 handed job. If I explained that his wee would go everywhere and then someone proceeded to touch my prolerty because they could not wait 1 minute, I would be livid.
    Well honestly if you saw my op you would see I wrote a shock horror 'I touched her pram'.... I wasn't going to... but she clearly had two hands on bub... . You also said you needed two hands for your bub .. so I politely asked/said 'I'll just move it a touch so I can get there'.... I by no means think I overstepped the boundaries by touching her property.
    And you'll also notice that I did not venture further to touch her pram once she said no quite rudely to me. So I did respect her boundary. .. still. .. I was polite about it.
    In fact. .I hate people touching my stuff too.. but if I had my hands full, in the same situation and I was blocking someone I would be only too happy for them to move the pram slightly so they could also change their child's nappy.

    Funnily enough my pram was blocking her exit when she wanted to leave and even though I had my hands full changing my daughter. ...I turned to my mum who was with me and said to my mum to just go out with the pram so she could get by!!!!

    It's very rude and OTT that she wouldn't let you use the space that was free.
    I've had 2 boys and changed them numerous times whilst out in public without wee going everywhere. It's quite simple to avoid really.

    I dunno, i personally don't find it outrageous and think maybe waiting a minute till she was finished was probably not an issue. She was probably flustered, and that simple request was just too much.. I wouldn't throw her under the bus for it! Poor woman, i wouldn't have questioned her, just given her time to finish what she was doing.

    saying this and touching property is not asking and you did not let her give consent to you touching her property. I do not care how nice you said it, it is still a huge invasion of privacy.

    If you said "Can i move your pram?", this would be a different scenario.

    Oh well. Guess I'll disagree with you. The inflection in my voice indicated a question. And I stopped when she got snarky and stepped back.
    So yeah. .. I think if anyone was inappropriate in the situation it was her. Her rudeness was unwarranted especially as I was very polite.
