My family and I went to a fireworks display last night with some wonderful neighbor's of our's. All 8 of us sat on the ground for the event and it was a lot of fun. But just before the display got started. Some woman that appeared to be mid 50's took her folding chair and sat with in 2 feet of my feet. My daughter with MR was in my lap at the time this happened. Not only did this woman not even ask to see if it was ok to sit there but to see if my daughter and I could still see the display if she had sat in front of us. Was it wrong of me to get up set about her blocking our view of the display from last night? We had to move over about 3 feet and bundle up with our friends that we went with just to see the event because of this woman. At one point I felt like I was having to cramp up my family just to see what was going on. Has This world really lost the meaning of Manners? or was it just to much to ask of some one to actually us their manners? Thanks for the advise in advance.Answer Question

I would have spoken up and said "Ma'am would you please move, we can't see if you sit there". Manners go both ways. Don't just judge her on her appearance and not give her the common courtesy of letting her know that she's blocking the view.
