    Was visiting mum for her graduation, we went into this bar and most big tables were empty when we arrived and had plenty of smaller tables.

    Gradually these people sat down, started out as 2 then ended up like 10 people so I was actually half over the edge of chair and squeezed tight next to my mum, and she was desperate for toilet but wasnt able to move.

    To make matters worse these people were shouting and yelling and slamming their pints down on the table, this was women as well as men and none of them were young, i'd say they were in their 40's and 50's and this was a family bar though some locals who live around corner do come in but these werent locals.

    Also is seemed as if they were deliberatly using their hips to push us and squeezing closer and closer in.

    Eventually we moved to a smaller table but my mum left in a foul mood as we are both polite.

    If it was me, I would definitely not have been too polite to say anything sooner and had to put up with that. Nicely ask for them to move away a little bit, yeah. Then a snide remark about personal space if they don't get the hint and move? There's some people that just don't listen no matter how reasonable you are, and if you were trying to get them to move to let you out rather than to reclaim your table, throw the 'f' word in and tell them to move, or change your tone of voice.

    That's just me though. I'd go mental if someone was getting far too close and I made it clear I wasn't happy about it, never mind a group of 10 rowdy strangers.
