If on the off chance the woman who said this on a North London bus during a luggage vs buggy barney is reading this, is there anything we as the other passengers could have done to support you. I've been thinking about it since it happened (this morning) and I'm not sure if we really did 'community' well. I think you were in the right but you did seem to be holding your own so was it ok for us to sit back and cringe. Hope you are okay now, you did sound a bit shaken.

more info please, we love a good old bus buggy barney!

You know, she probably not reading. You may as well explain it to the rest of us.

Come on, let's have it OP.

We need to know details so we can get judgy.

Lonecatwithkitten Sun 19-May-13 14:02:29

Come on who was being unreasonable the buggy or the luggage?

Come on we need the full story!

Is this like one of those cryptic/attention seeking Facebook statuses where the poster hopes that everybody who sees it says, "Oh what happened, pleeeeease tell us?" grin

God I hate them. Because I want to know what happened

More please. I'm putting off mowing the lawn for an update.

Do explain smile

You can't leave us like this!

Its not really my story to tell. I think it would be a great coincidence if the woman herself came on to tell it, she could easily have been a mner.

phantomnamechanger Sun 19-May-13 14:20:55

maybe OP is one of the barney-ers coming on to try to continue where they left off, or to berate other passengers for not sticking up for her?

Hummuschocolate Sun 19-May-13 14:24:39

I definitely not one of the barniers just an awkward onlooker. I highly doubt that the man with luggage would be an mner but the woman with buggy could be

It is your story to tell. You were there and saw it.

this is EXACTLY like those pointless attention seeking facebook posts. if you dont want to explain, why bother posting? just man up and check if shes was ok at the time, rather than scurrying home ineffectively on mumsnet

comedycentral Sun 19-May-13 14:30:29

Yawn. Pointless attention seeking post without an update

BringBackBod Sun 19-May-13 14:30:55

If you don't tell us now, I'm going to leave this thread and not come back!

apostropheuse Sun 19-May-13 14:31:04

Good grief what's the point of this OP other than to get people to ask what happened? It's like what fourteen year olds do on Facebook.

Let me guess...

Woman gets on bus with buggy. Nowhere for her to put buggy as man has luggage on floor rather than the luggage area. Man refuses to move said luggage. Woman insists he moves it. Man moves it.

...or something similar.

TheHerringScreams Sun 19-May-13 14:31:39

Tell us!

Guitargirl Sun 19-May-13 14:32:11

YABVU to post something so utterly pointless.

CunningAtBothEnds Sun 19-May-13 14:33:29

YABU unless you tell us...

MomsNetCurtains Sun 19-May-13 14:35:11

I've never reported a post in all my time on MN, no matter how rude some people have been. But I am sorely tempted to report this one just for being so twattish.

As long as you tell the story from your pov then it is your story - you can't tell it from pov of the man or the woman.
