    I didn't say it was outrageous. I would not call it outrageous. . but I do think she was rude. And I didn't question her?? Just asked if I could access the other change station.

    Sure she could be having a bad day. . but so could I.
    I'm honestly over the excuse of someone having a bad day as a reason to be rude and thoughtless to others.

    There was no reason for her to be so rude and using the had a bad day or frazzled excuse to excuse her disgusting behavior is insulting to women an no excuse at all. No wonder men think they can freely use it and make us sound like weak fragile people. I have 3 kids. 2 of them 18 months apart 1 has a disability and no matter how frazzled have never been rude to a stranger because of it.

    See that's just it! I average 2-4 hours sleep a night. .. Sometimes 6 if I'm lucky once in a blue moon. .. have a child with special needs/syndrome/disability. .. I have lots going on but I am polite to strangers. Even yesterday I had 2 hrs sleep was feeling pretty rough and was getting groceries. At the checkout the guy in front of me forgot his atm card in the car. .. so I said I didn't mind waiting. He can run out and grab it. I'm happy to wait. No big deal!!
    I reserve my crankiness for hubby. Hehe.

    Totally agree.

    Even when flustered I am usually able to mumble out an "I'm so sorry, I'll just be a tick." People tend to take that kind of things better when there's at least a bit of humility behind it rather than just snarky entitlement over a lack of ability to manage one's own personal space.

    I am missing how someone saying "NO" after their privacy has been invaded is rude or being in a mood.

    Some people's personal space is their physical body. Some people's includes an area around their body.

    Some people's personal space includes their belongings.

    That's fine but she was in a public area. Your personal space can't extend to the whole room.

    She was the one blocking property that's intended for the use of numerous customers. I think she could of politely said "sorry she was in the way she won't be a minute" or similar or SHARE something we tell our kids. OP little one for all she knew could of exploded a nappy and needed changing quickly. It is not her place to allow someone access.

    Privacy she is in a PUBLIC toilet !!!!! And it's not her change table

    If you want your own space stay at home

    Asking her to just move her crap which is blocking other peoples way to use equipment which is there for everyone to use isn't rude or in someone's space

    3 change stations, 2 already in use well just move your bl00dy pram so the 3rd station can be used, that's what it's there for and if not she should've just said listen can you wait 2 seconds instead of a flat out NO!

    Sick of rude people.
