In thinking mother and baby places should not be used by those without children not pregnant etc and then laugh about it treating it as a joke!!

PILs park in the mother and baby space all the time as a matter of course using the fact they have a child seat in there as an excuse!! Never take my dcs shopping never why would they? That is very very unreasonable imo and makes me angry ! They have been challanged about it and they say they make a joke about they left the kids at home!
Observant ones will notice I put this on another thread but then thought it deserves an aibu in its own right iyswim!

does it really metter?

Shoegazer Sat 23-Aug-08 21:58:35

of course it matters, they are parking in a mother and child space, they should not be using these if they don't have a child!

no they are not old and frail!

Nevermind, it doesn't really matter.

Take the car seat out their car.

I think all parent and child bays should be abolished entirely, actually, and replaced with disabled bays.

Every last one of them.

I also think retailers should start contracting with private tow companies and tow away all vehicles that park in disabled bays with no blue badge.

Yes - what expat said.

2shoes Sat 23-Aug-08 22:26:47

expat speaks sense as always

juuule Sat 23-Aug-08 22:27:22

Agree with expat.

2shoes Sat 23-Aug-08 22:30:25

i love expat

Yes to the towing, but I do like the parent and child bays. It saves cares from getting bashed by kids getting in and out of cars.

wotulookinat Sat 23-Aug-08 22:31:47

I mean 'saves cars' of course! blush

juuule Sat 23-Aug-08 22:32:56

I usually try to park in an empty part of the carpark to avoid car getting bashed.

wotulookinat Sat 23-Aug-08 22:34:45

It's not my car I am so worried about - it's the one next to it. I am a ahem large lady and need the door open quite wide to get my son strapped into his seat.
Maybe we should have fat peoples and skinny-minny beautiful people aren't allowed near them!!!!!! grin

juuule Sat 23-Aug-08 22:36:25

I think empty part of carpark would work just as well for not bashing other cars, too

Why Expat? Don't you find it difficult struggling with baby, buggy, nappy bag, handbag, umbrella plus shopping?? Surely proportionally there aren't enough disabled people to justify reallocating all parent and child bays as disabled??

hf128219 Sat 23-Aug-08 22:38:12

What about people who borrow the disabled person's car avec said Blue Badge and park in said Disabled place? That is sooooo bad.

I know a few people who do that. angry

wotulookinat Sat 23-Aug-08 22:39:32

Bloody logic. What's wrong with you all? grin

Isn't part of the idea of P&C spaces for vhild safety so you're not dragging a screaming toddler across a car park?

wotulookinat Sat 23-Aug-08 22:40:01

vhild safety??? what's a vhild? I mean 'child' of course.
