    Default Etiquette in baby change rooms!

    Um is this rude much????
    I was at the baby change rooms today at the shops. There were three changing 'stations' and two were in use.
    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."
    I replied saying "I'll just move this a bit so I can get there. ." Indicating her pram (yes shocking I would touch her pram).
    She's adamantly says no. .. continues to change her baby taking up the whole area!
    I don't get it. .. I couldn't believe how rude she was. I was very polite and not r rude.. and would happily wait for a change station if there was a queue... But there was no need.

    I hope she reads this forum and thinks how rude she was and how other mums should help each other out!!!

    ETA no point really to this post just venting!!

    That's so so rude! I have no idea what makes people treat total strangers like that. Even if I was having the worst morning ever I would never treat a person like that. What a great example for her child she is.

    I wonder whether there was some miscommunication going on there... like there was another reason for not wanting to move things, or she misunderstood what you were asking.

    I wonder because it's a strange, and otherwise very rude, response to what you asked.

    I thought the same. .. But my mum was with me and it said it was really weird how rude she was. I don't think she misunderstood. I mean there's no way she thought I was trying to push her out of the way to use her change station. .. it was clear the one next to her was free.

    How bizarre? Seems like she was very wound up and uptight and overreacted, I would try not to worry about it, you did nothing wrong.

    I just don't get the "he'll pee everywhere" was she referring to her baby? If so what is she giving him to think he will pee like a fire hose to cover everyone!

    But I do think it is rude!

    Yes rude.

    No excuse even if having a bad day coz u don't know how the other mum is coping either, so even if u feel poopy it's nice to be polite to others.

    I am going to go against the grain here and say you were inapropriate to touch her property.

    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.

    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.
