Ok, so today 3 year old DS and I were at the shopping mall, on the travelator thingy, DS was chatting away to me and I was struggling to hear him as it was noisy. At the same time he was sitting with his legs out his toes touching each side of the travelator. Suddenly the woman behind me squeezes by me, grabs DS's ankle, shoves his leg out of the way and barges past!
I saw red instantly and shouted "hey, what do you think you are doing!" She turns round an stares at me, I say " you could have said excuse me!" She says "I did" ( maybe she did? But I certainly didn't hear her) by now I'm fuming and yell " just don't touch my kid!!" She ignored me and hurried off, what a rude bish!! Wish I'd have thought of something better to say, but its hard when you're taken by surprise!
Anyway, just wanted a vent about it as it made me really angry!

While I agree she shouldn't have touched your child, I imagine it would be very annoying being unable to pass as a child was sitting down blocking the walkway. Maybe have him stand next to you in future? I'm pretty sure it can be dangerous to sit on them anyway as clothing etc can get caught in them and dragged in at the end- I've actually seen a travelator eat a croc shoe!

I just re read my post. Sorry, he was sat in the pram, not on the floor of the travelator.

How rude that she touched your son, but I can see how annoying it would be for others to have your sons legs blocking them from passing.

I can see why the woman may have been annoyed wanting to pass... But she has no right to touch your son I would have been furious and probably would have reacted the same way! Even if she did say excuse me and you hadn't heard, a polite tap on your shoulder to catch your attention and then saying excuse me again would have been better than grabbing your sons leg!

I would have said something to her too. I would have seen red if she'd touched my child too.
In fact I once yelled at someone in a shopping centre who told my child off.
Hugs! I remember the confrontation I had gave me an adrenalin rush and i was shaky all day after it.
