And it's ALWAYS old people or business men.

I want to scratch all their cars and kick their tyres!

of course YABU to want to cause damage to someone elses car!!

And on that note I will settle down for another lovely P and C space 'debate'

Yes you are a being unreasonable, p+t parking is a privelege not a right. Wanted to be the first to get that in grin

oh dear

Meh. Hate me, as you will, but I parked in there the other day without mine. Usually its "done to me" when I have my kids but can't get a park, this time I "did it".

You either do it or its done to you.

Its not a necessity.

You're obviously a bit unhinged if you let an unnecessary marketing gimmic bother you so much.

Park at the back of the car park where there's often more space.

I said this earlier, didn't I? We get two parking threads this month, apparently, now wheel on the one about children with pierced ears and we'll have a full house!

I take it you havent been on MN long? This is one of those conversations that always kicks off big time.

I do understand that its annoying but prepare to be ripped to shreds by the MN wolves.

Ooooh tatty, did you not trip on the back to your car on teh babies who had melted having to be carried through what may have been a light drizzle?

OP this is something to be mildly irritated about at most. Yours is an epic over reaction.
Are you ok??

kat2504 Mon 26-Sep-11 20:19:48

Not another parking thread? If you want to know the general opinion on this do a forum search. Pleaaaaaase don't lets have another ten page thread about car parks!

and boring

not another P&C parking space moan. it's not that hard to get kids from the car to the shop, and the world will not end if you have to park a bit further away.

wait till it's freezing/snowing/blowing a gale then maybe i'll have a moan about a lady with a 12yr old parking closer to the shop door than me with my 3 under 3's.

carabos Mon 26-Sep-11 20:23:07

How do you know these people don't have kids and are "always old people or business men"? Could it be that you are a busybodywho lurks in the supermarket car park with a clipboard a concerned mum with a bit too much time on her hands?

stripedcat Mon 26-Sep-11 20:25:04


Calm down it is only a parking space! Why on earth would you think this justifies damaging other peoples property?

AmazingBouncingFerret Mon 26-Sep-11 20:25:29

Is it that time already? Of course YANBU OP. Although I think you are underreacting slightly, next time I suggest fantasizing about firebombing their cars and chopping their little fingers off.

bibbitybobbityhat Mon 26-Sep-11 20:25:45

Op: this is a topic that has been debated many many times on Mumsnet over the years (approx once every two weeks for 10 years at a guess) so you may well get some jaded replies.

If you do find anyone wants to have a good old ruckus with you you will probably find they are newbs or strangely fixated on p&t parking.
