To think this mother was obnoxious

In this city, buses have two high front seats (one on each side) and behind that, two bays of four seats facing each other for priority seating.

Mother with a buggy gets on, parks buggy in one bay, takes child out, and arranges her on a seat in the other bay, taking the other seat for herself. In effect, two people are now taking up eight seats.

Obviously I don't begrudge her the childother, or the buggy., but am I being unreasonable to think taking up TWO bays is obnoxious when a) the bus was busy enough that people could have used those seats (Its cleared out since, we passed a higschool and the teenagers all got off lol) and b) it's possible, and not an inconvenience/uncomfortable for mother, child AND buggy to fit in one bay?

Depends if she was willing to move if someone needed priority seating

She should have left the child in the pram and sat in front of it in the bay. If the child is young enough to need the pram it probably isn't safe for them to on a seat.

Apologies for awful typos, my phone is being naughty!

Yes, we have to share space and taking up more than you need is unfair and selfish

Meh. Of course it was a bit selfish but she may have thought that as soon as anyone needed the seat, she would move. Are you saying there were actually people standing while she took up 8 seats?

Yes, there were people standing.
