AIBU to scowl at people walking behind me while I pram our baby around making faces and waving at her, just as I am trying to get her to sleep?

CaptainCrunch Fri 04-Mar-16 11:06:11

Yeah.

People are following you around in order to make faces and wave at your baby?

SnuffleGruntSnorter Fri 04-Mar-16 11:07:27

I feel your pain, once a lady stopped me to ask if I was walking round and round the park to get the baby's sleep. When I replied yes she proceeded to TICKLE him! shock

blondieblonde Fri 04-Mar-16 11:08:56

I'm sure they're real people wink

Not unreasonable at all. I suggest making a sign to hang on the hood declaring 'DON'T LOOK AT MY BABY', so this doesn't happen again in public places.

Sorry. If a baby is looking over a parent's shoulder I tend to smile or pull a silly face at it. Clearly I am a very U person.

Strangers SMILED at your baby? You should fucking shoot them, the bastards, how dare they?

The things people on MN will whine about, its a never ending list.

SnuffleGruntSnorter Fri 04-Mar-16 14:23:55

OP is clearly being light hearted.

Some people on here act like they've got their tampons in sideways. grin

This drives me mad too, or when they finally drop off a jogger with headphones in will yell morning angry

SaucyJack Fri 04-Mar-16 14:25:51

My baby scowls at strangers herself.

That's ma girl!

ShesGotLionsInHerHeart Fri 04-Mar-16 14:27:00

The utter cunts. grin

FigMango1 Fri 04-Mar-16 14:27:08

This is lighthearted? It's not even funny!

passmethewineplease Fri 04-Mar-16 14:27:11

Some horrible people about these days.

Fucking smiling? Arseholes.

YABU, obviously. grin

"Pram" is a verb?

ShesGotLionsInHerHeart Fri 04-Mar-16 14:32:30

Micah that made me confused so I decided it must be a typo, and she meant push. Otherwise my head would have exploded, making such a mess.

leelu66 Fri 04-Mar-16 14:35:04

Is this a stealth 'my baby is soo cute strangers love her' boast?

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 04-Mar-16 14:39:33

So you rather they look stone faced at your baby. hmm.

molyholy Fri 04-Mar-16 14:43:36

Them fucking smiling bastards. Unfortunately, they probably don't know that you are trying to get your baby to sleep. Maybe the inconsiderate twats aren't mindreaders.

AppleSetsSail Fri 04-Mar-16 14:44:30

From MN I've learned that mothers of small babies do not want strangers to pat them on their heads or god forbid stroke their cheeks. I will now add smiling to the list.

GastonsPomPomWrath Fri 04-Mar-16 14:46:09

People that smile are cunts. What is there to be happy about? Ever. Fuckers.

We're only trying to help....

DatsunCogs Fri 04-Mar-16 14:51:16

YANBU. You need to cultivate a steely glare, like mine angrywink I am nevertheless often bothered at a critical eyes-dropping moment, but usually for directions, my baby's obviously not as cute as yours, OP

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Fri 04-Mar-16 14:58:36

I pram
I will be pramming
I prammed

The last time I peeked in a lady's pram there was a dog in it. I'm still shocked now. I didn't know people did this.
