Quote: Originally Posted by Chamomile Girl Seriously?? There is huge stroller animosity in the Bay Area! Especially San Francisco. I've lived in Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and, as a side note, Oregon. Of these the only place I have not seen it is Ashland. San Francisco is renowned for being one of the most child unfriendly cities in the country. Stroller or not people glare at you if you dare take your child out to eat (much like a...

I have lived in 5 different states all over the US and two different countries, plus a territory, plus spent a year traveling to 33 different countries. So I feel like I have had pretty broad experiences with all sorts of different folks. comments from previous threads..and yes strollers. I have just never...
Not having hot water would be unusual in the US. The OP doens't have a location listed but from her siggy it looks like she might be in Mexico or close to it.

I have always backed out of doors when I have the stroller, then hold the door...
Oh mine was beautiful as a two year old. As a three year old.. not so much. The other day we walked down the bulk isle and he pulled every single scoop out of the holder and let them dangle on to the floor on their little bungy thingies. I followed him putting them back (they didn't hit the floor) and told him to stop. He stops and looks at me and says, "What mom? It's funny!" Oh yes.. he is his fathers child! I get the same response when I tell him not to push the...

Quote: Originally Posted by pragmaticme I have yet to see a case of stroller rage in my neighborhood. And I live in an urban setting, but in Canada, so maybe we're more polite. I use a stroller, I am a courteous person by nature - as are most human beings. I believe people generally mean well.
