Today I was trying to park my car with my 2 young children outside the supermarket but couldn't get a baby space. I then saw a woman get out of her car from a mum and baby space WITH NO CHILD! She just parked, got out all alone and strolled into the supermarket with a smug look on her face . (OK there was no smug look I just made that part up but I just imagined her smugness) Whilst I huffed and puffed across the whole car park with an unruly 4 yr old and baby in buggy!!!!! IT INFURIATES ME !

Yanbu but there's not a lot you can do about it really, the spaces aren't policed by the supermarkets.
Fwiw I have been parking in them recently, 40wks and the other day I couldn't get back in my car as someone parked so close, though I do try to find end of Isle first but if not then p&c

You've not been round these parts long have you OP? This has been done to death, then a thousand times more.

Carys62 Tue 07-Jun-16 22:51:28

It happens all the time. If I wasn't sweating my head of and guilty of being unable to control my 4yo... Then I definatly would of drop kicked her and sat on the roof of her annoyingly amazing car angry

Since when did walking a few hundred yards with a pushchair and an almost school age child become such an impossible task?

Trills Tue 07-Jun-16 22:52:26

What about dads?

Or babysitters?

Are they allowed, or is it only mums and babies?

You'll only be annoyed about it for a short time . It will pass .

Classy OP.

Our local supermarket has some mother and baby spaces next to the cash points . There are always loads of people parking there just to use the cash points. Recently a van was parked across 3 spaces, driver using the cash point!

Samcro Tue 07-Jun-16 22:53:51

Well really
You have a 4 yr old, they should be able to the shopping for you

SusanAndBinkyRideForth Tue 07-Jun-16 22:54:11

Might have been me.

I'm so used to having the kids with me and so parking in the parent spaces , that the other day I parked there without children.
In my defence, Dh was seriously ill with sepsis in hospital, the kids hadnt slept due to all the trauma, and I also have fucking awful SPD - and then proceeded to have a complete sobbing breakdown in the shop, as it was the first time all week I hadn't had to hold myself together in front of with Dh or kids.

So shoot me.

Carys62 Tue 07-Jun-16 22:54:15

Yes I have been here for a long time... I just needed to post!!!!! I am just crazy annoyed at this one occasion and DH can't cope with my rants smile

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 07-Jun-16 22:54:18

This is not going to go well.

I generally don't mind or indeed notice but do think white van men who do it are total wankers. They do it so often, it's just a new thing to add to the list of reasons the white can man stereotype exists.

FeckinCrutches Tue 07-Jun-16 22:54:19

Yes, aren't they Parent & Child?

FeckinCrutches Tue 07-Jun-16 22:54:55

You must have managed to miss all of them then!

WellErrr Tue 07-Jun-16 22:55:04

The bitch. I hope she got a shit trolley as karma.

Sighing Tue 07-Jun-16 22:55:10

Normally i can't even raise rage at the lazy feckers who apparently are too precious to walk across the car park (or perhaps they are hoping to improve the walking & contortionist abilities of parents struggling to manage doors/ seats pushchairs etc). But last week. Parent & child space at the leisure centre. I spotted a very energetic looking gym going lady. ... later on I realised she was a member of staff. Great parked there all bloody day. confused

ThoraGruntwhistle Tue 07-Jun-16 22:55:13

Imagine that parent and child spaces are not a thing. They no longer exist. Every single supermarket has decided that they're stupid and got rid of them.

Would your life continue as normal?

SusanAndBinkyRideForth Tue 07-Jun-16 22:55:27

Ah just read it was a nice car. Def me then! I have a crappy, dented, scratched 15yo French banger grin
