To think if you see someone sitting on a tree stump

You don't start making your children sit/stand behind you for a photo opportunity and then all start gathering there for a family photo?

I have recurring back problems and can't sit on the floor. So now I'm sitting on the picnic table they've also taken over and they're moving back and giving me "looks" and tutting.

Do you look famous?

DesolateWaist Sat 13-Aug-16 17:10:23

Are you a gnome or fairy?

HateSummer Sat 13-Aug-16 17:10:55

No. I had my back to them. confused

Did they try to take your lucky charms OP?

Blerg Sat 13-Aug-16 17:11:31

Wtf? I was thinking fairy or pixie too!

Is it it a famous landmark for some reason? Otherwise they are rude twats. Tell them to jog on!

So they took a picture with your back in the frame and in retaliation you went and sat at their picnic table?

I think they knew about your recurring back problems and did it deliberately.

I don't really understand this

No I'm a human being 😁

I sat on the floor for a bit and could feel my back going so their picnic bench was empty and I went and sat there. Not really retaliation. But I'm not happy about my backside being in at least one of their pictures angry

I don't understand it either.

It is funny. I think I get what OP means but it sounds like they were treating her like a photo opportunity!

Babyzoo Sat 13-Aug-16 17:22:12

So they took a photograph near you?

HateSummer Sat 13-Aug-16 17:22:37

They're all huffing around me. I might get up.

HateSummer Sat 13-Aug-16 17:24:09

They took a photo right behind me! Like children were right up on my back on a tree stump. They didn't say excuse me. Just started taking pictures of them and family with my back facing them confused

Op, there is only one thing to be done.
Preferably with a look of satisfaction on your face and one leg raised. They will soon move on.

Babyzoo Sat 13-Aug-16 17:26:38

Oh I see, a bit like when people get really close to you in a queue.

I usually accidentally elbow them.

Justanothernumber2 Sat 13-Aug-16 17:27:09

RJ grin

Do it, OP!

ReginaBlitz Sat 13-Aug-16 17:29:09

Should have flipped the bird behind your back,, sure that one wouldn't be going in the family album.

Willyorwonte Sat 13-Aug-16 17:29:58

Ohhhhhh I reckon you look like someone famous. Smile and say cheese loudly.

HawkingsMead Sat 13-Aug-16 17:30:37

Was there nothing more photogenic than your backside around them? How very odd. Seems more weird than rude.

<disappointed that OP is a mere human>

But do try farting.

They're making pa comments:
"Sit there if you have space"'s funny they're only making pa comments in English.

I'm getting up now. My children have gone to the other side of the park.
