should actually have a child with them, or if they have a child they are below the age of 5?!?!

Not unreasonable to club abusers of these spaces with a frozen leg of lamb upon spotting them i'd say...


tinymum · 22/05/2007 14:57

No, I think you are right, but people generally don't give a toss about this.


IdrisTheDragon · 22/05/2007 14:57

This is a Mumsnet touch paper subject .

Long threads generally happen on this subject .


fannyannie · 22/05/2007 14:57

well.....I'm not too fussy about M&B parking spaces..........BUT - how do you know if a child is aged under 5???? without actually asking the parents?

Perhaps the 'older' looking child is older - but has disabilities??

anyone want some popcorn?

The other day I say a woman of about 50 in a sports car with a lap dog nick a space off a woman in a clio with a newborn. I guess she thought the dog was her 'baby' lol

I think it depends on the child,my niece is 7,but she is autistic,so the closer to the shop the better,and she also needs the space to open the door wide to get her out the car.I suppose if your child is in a car seat then you need the space otherwise you would take the paint off the car next to you.

Hey Daisy, didn't you know it's MN etiquette to read through all the posts on a particular topic before you start a new thread?

(Only joking )


tombley · 22/05/2007 14:59

Are you going to say that Elderly/Disabled people should not be allowed to use M+B parking spaces? If yes then you are in for a long day.


WanderingTrolley · 22/05/2007 14:59


fannieannie don't go there!

that kicked off the other week!

All children should just be kept away from supermarkets, it causes too many rows on here.


brimfull · 22/05/2007 15:01

oh bloody hell not again!


fishie · 22/05/2007 15:01

i think mntowers should rename aibu topic 'supermarket parking spaces'.

daizydoo, unfortunately the subject of your thread comes up at least weekly.


pesme · 22/05/2007 15:02

no, i think single men in open topped cars and highlighted woman in 4x4s should be allowed to park lengthways across 2 p&t spaces.

LOL Pesme.


WanderingTrolley · 22/05/2007 15:05

All mother and babies spaces should be replaced with "Hummers only"

(something you want to tell us hatrick...?)

I don't care who parks in the m&b spaces. At our local Tesco's the car park is really big so if you drive to the spaces that are furthest from the store you get loads of room to get the dcs out as you can park between 2 empty spaces. I have never understood why a parent needs spaces nearer the store entrance more than anyone else.


2shoesisanoldlady · 22/05/2007 15:22

well i can park there with my baby..........he may be 15 but he is still my baby

Does anyone else keep getting these strange deja vue moments??


MissGolightly · 22/05/2007 15:34

oh my god it's groundhog day...


persephonesnape · 22/05/2007 15:34

if it's a mother and baby parking space, do fathers and children have to park elsewhere, say near the pub or golf course?
