    If you said "Can i move your pram?", this would be a different scenario.
    Its a pram! Its not like she was going to move a child.

    I understand being frazzled, I understand having a bad day. Humans are like goldfish, they take up as much room as they are given. However in this situation I would be happy to have the OP move my pram if it meant not taking my hands off bubs. I would then have been embarrassed that she couldn't get straight though.

    Some people seriously lack social etiquette.

    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!!

    Okay I can see this from both sides.
    I have been both women over the years.


    Yes SHE WAS RUDE FOR blocking the change station. And she could have said I will done in a sec and move it for you.

    I have had days that I just couldn't cope but needed to carry on. I was doing my best in a extremely difficult situation. I have snapped at strangers. I even snapped at people who have done nothing wrong. I am human.

    Honestly you didn't ask. You implied that you would move her pram. Big difference.
    Touching someone pram without their permission is wrong. I understand you didn't. But I totally get why you got the sharp no or he'll no. You have no idea what in her pram had a large sum of money or breakables that are balance just so.

    I also agree that IF you had of touched her pram without getting her say so first you would have invaded her personal space. Which I understand you didn't.

    Yeah, she handled it badly - no excuse for being so blatantly rude. I don't really think I would have let it get to me though, I probably would have forgotten about it by the time I got home.

    Oh it hadn't 'got to me'. Certainly didn't ruin my day or anything. Was just a bit gobsmacked by it so thought I'd share my little rant. I'm far from someone who lets this stuff get to me. Also BH threads etc can make things look worse than they are iykwim. Now that it's been discussed it's a bigger deal than it was.

    Yeah. I see where you're coming from with your explanation.
    I guess because I'm someone who hates people touching me or my stuff. . but have had people move my pram to be helpful I considered that I was actually being helpful so she didn't have to take her hands off bub. I certainly wasn't being intentionally rude to touch her personal belongings. I wouldn't bat an eyelid as I said earlier if someone did it to me.

    Sorry but even if I'm having a complete balls of a day, it's just ingrained in me to still be polite to other people.

    If I had of been that lady, I would have said "oh I'm so sorry, I'm just in the middle of a Change". If you had of asked to moves pram, I would have said "oh yes. I'm so sorry!"

    It's just polite isn't it? And I wouldn't think twice about doing it even if there was a massive thundercloud over my head. Not your fault I'm having a crap day.

    As for the woman... Well sorry to say the world is full if selfish arrogants like her. (And yes, I meant arrogant as a noun, not an adjective )

    I'm happy for someone to say "sorry do you mind if i move" and move what ever I've left in the road of someone else . I tend to go into fairy land and think I'm the only person around .

    She was rude in taking up two spaces for no good reason .

    There is no such thing a courtesy anymore .

    I would've been rude too if you touched my pram, but I also wouldn't of had it position somewhere that would of been an inconvenience to others. It's a tricky one.
