No! It’s definetly not offensive and is easier than saying something!

I think you were totally justified putting her in her place, fyi, fwiw, acronym, etc. But I think some people get offended by shushing just because it’s kind of a huffy, intense sound. One can’t shush at a decent volume without getting an ugly look on one’s face and probably spitting a little bit. 🙂 I’m sitting here trying to shush politely with a smile on my face and I’m sure I look positively demonic. I scared the cat.

Like I said, you probably weren’t rude or wrong at all, but in my experience politely saying, “Excuse me, could you please take your conversation outside?” or something might be equally or more effective.

I would have been annoyed as well having to hear other people talk during something important.  I don’t blame you one bit.  If she thinks what you did was RUDE well apparently she doesnt know that talking during something like that is RUDE

@Beluga:  I just burst out laughing because I, too, tried to “Shhh” with a smile on my face and I looked so crazy, Fiance was like “Wtf are you doing?!”

I kinda get it. I can see how she might think it was rude of you to use a sound at her rather than to talk to her. You shush children. *However* if she’s really concerned with what’s polite, she should’ve had her mouth shut in the first place, and probably deserves whatever you said to her later.
