Prams and trolleys improperly parked are a total menace! If you can't keep them out of peoples way, then expect someone to move them!!
I do so frequently, and as far as I'm concerned, if you can't keep your stuff together then tough tittie, someones going to do it for you.
I do imagine the Mum in the room was feeling crap for any number of reasons, but oh well, we all have crap days...
Nothing wrong whatsoever with what you did Tamtam.

Wow! I can't believe the woman acted the way she did. There's no way that was acceptable behaviour and she can't expect to just take up room like that and block a spare change station without someone asking her to move.
Bad day, sleep deprived..whatever her reason may have been for snapping...that's no excuse in my book. I've been sleep deprived and completely out of sorts since DS2 was born a year ago and even when I am having the crappiest of crap days, there is no way I would ever take it out on a stranger. Ever.

Little side story...,,My dad used to be terrible for having a (lighthearted) go at people who looked miserable or angry while driving. He's call out to them and say 'smile' with a cheesy grin on his face. Until one day a particularly miserable looking woman yelled back '**** off you a**hole my mother just died". Dad was mortified and the woman was understandably upset as we drove past her. He's never done it since.

Yes I think it's inevitable that we all will come across people like this in our lives at some point and really the best thing to do it just hold your tongue, breathe and just tell yourself it's not you, but them, and wait it out until they bugger off. It's annoying and you may never be rude like that yourself but others do and it's just not worth taking personally. Just think of it as permission to treat yourself to (nice bottle of wine or chocolate) for being so gracious.

I also said that SOMETIMES we (everyone) can read a bit too much into a persons 'snappy tone' which is true.
I do think this whole thread is way OTT and I actually can't believe how everyone is judging this woman saying how rude she was/is when they WERE NOT THERE. There is ALWAYS two sides to a story, but in true BH form, everyone jumps on the bandwagon.
I also don't really believe that people have any right to be rude to strangers, I'm simply saying that she may have other things going on in her life to cause her to act like that.
Who knows, maybe she's dying of cancer!? Have you ever thought of that? You just NEVER know someone else's story.
I get that everyone judges people at some point, I do too, but this just seems a bit OTT to me. Yes she may have been rude, but there are a lot worse things that happen in life.
I never said or implied that you weren't a nice person, nice people ***** and moan too, I said there was nothing wrong with a 'vent' either. I'm a nice person too. Goodness me, she was changing her kids nappy and didn't want you to touch her pram and snapped at you in a rude tone. Big deal.
I also never said or implied you weren't a good judge of character, again I simply said SOMETIMES we can misinterpret someone's tone (not exactly those words, but that's what I meant)
What's wrong with a bugaboo by the way?
You also said you hope she reads this and realised mums should help each other out
Well if she read this thread I'm sure she would feel awful AND embarrassed and possibly quite upset at everyone saying what a ***** she is.
The same could go for you, you could also help her out you know. Maybe she needs help more than you do?
I'm just giving a different perspective here.

Um @SAgirl I think you should go back and read all the posts... especially mine. And perhaps re read your posts and be careful about the use of capitals in your posts, which comes across very rude and confrontational. Using capitals/block letters imply yelling just so you know.
I'm not going to respond to each and every point you've made because as you say.. it's a bit OTT. And I've already addressed those points and they have nothing to do with the little vent that started this thread. I stand by my posts.
If it makes you this cross I suggest unsubscribing and not posting further in the thread.
Oh and the bugaboo thing was a joke. Nothing wrong with one at all. It wasn't a strider.

I'm not upset at all...
My use of capitals was not yelling either, it is also used as emphasis on words. That's all.
Anyway, I've said my piece, simply stating there are reasons why people act the way they do, it's not acceptable to be rude to someone for no reason but it does happen and there could be reasons behind it.
