To think that a police car should park properly and not half in my bay!

I was in Asda on Friday with my two charges so parked at the back of car park where hardly no one parks.
I came back to find a police car half parked in my bay so I couldn't get door open and a ridiculous angle. I knew they weren't on an emergency as they were casually getting a McDonald's.

AIBU to expect the officer driving to park in the designated bay like every one else?

not at all.

I hope you went up to them and asked them to move!

The plice can be arses as can anyone else, they are after all only warranted members of the public.

Yanbu, at Dds school there is often a traffic camera car to catch people parking badly, it is, without fail always parked on the zig zags

I waited for about 5mins and they arrived back to find a screaming baby and me rather pissed off. Politely as I could I said don't you know how to park!

Did you ask for an announcement at the shop?


I'd really embarass them.

You should have taken a picture of their car and uploaded it to wink

Without that is a very very good suggestion, this website is a valuable resource.

Without caution - ill bear that in mind.
The police officer justified his parking with he had to be quick incase a call came in angry

Bumping as want more views.
Friends have told me i am unreasonable to think he should park properly

DameMargotFountain Sun 21-Oct-12 18:45:59

does really exist <hopeful>

i've got a picture of a Squad car in a P&C space grin

I disagree with them.

If they were attending an incident then yes, they should not be expected to concern themselves with how they park.

But they were just doing to get some food. There is no reason why they can't park properly.

going not doing

redwhiteandblueeyedsusan Sun 21-Oct-12 18:48:17

dame, yes and there are quite a few opictures of police cars on there.

I would have made them get me a MacDonald's to apologise smile

Dordeydoo Sun 21-Oct-12 18:50:02

I was tempted to just try and squeeze the kids in leaving scratch and dent marks on the car

lannyshrops Sun 21-Oct-12 19:22:35

You are so NBU! This kind if thing REALLY gets on my wick! As for the excuse....please!
It's really annoys me the way the police also regularly break the speed limits too, how on earth can one have respect for them??
