Inconsiderate arseholes in car parks!!

Just nipped to Asda with my sister and her two (2 years and 6 months). Went to pull into a parent/child space - the only one left - and a woman in a taxi swipes the space. I politely asked her to move as she had no child with her, compared to my two. She told me she had her toddler with her and pointed to her daughter climbing out of the front passenger seat...she was around 15/16 ish...certainly not a child under the age of 12 in a booster seat!

Luckily, as I got back in the car another parent/child space opened up.

It really annoys me that people would rather occupy one of those spaces (same for disabled bays) for the sake of an extra 10 feet to the door.

Pound to a penny they'd be the first to complain when a toddler accidentally slams into their car with a door!!

 

That kind of reminds me of an incident a few years back in our local asda, a woman with a couple of kids in the car parks up and then starts to complain that the baby and toddler trolleys are nowhere near where she's parked, it was only when I happened to say,

 

"Well you do know these are disabled spaces",

 

and pointed out the parent and child spaces right beside the trolleys.

 

She still didn't move her car though.

 

It's about time the supermarkets started clamping inconsiderate parkers

I hate it when you stop to let some one cross the road and they'll do this stupid run (which doesnt actualy make them move any faster) over the empty half of the road and then when they get to the side you are they just walk slower than they normally would

It's really annoying when you see all the disabled spaces full and half of them have no badges, just lazy people who have gone in to get !Removed!, or people who go and do their whole shopping and think nothing of it... And then when you say anything all you get is abuse. 

 

Also people who park at the super market, then walk into town because it's free parking, meaning there aren't any spaces for anyone wanting to actually shop at the retail park. You just see them walking across in massive numbers, usually walking across before the light has turned on red too. And a good deal are 'disabled'. Probably got kids with ADHD so can claim disability.

A few "police aware" stickers stuck on her car would have given her food for thought, (Pardon the unintentional pun)

One for van drivers who I think should be able to relate to this: you're parked up and reversing out of a parking space and obviously you have limited view of whats behind you so you're pulling out slowly looking behind you as much as you can and some inconsiderate so and so knowibg full well you cant see darts behind you to get past rather than waiting a few more seconds to let you get out

Great thread.

 

Anything and everything bothers me. I'm short tempered when it comes to driving. Tailgating is my ultimate hate though.
