Parking problems are getting worse
WITH reference to Bucks Advertiser, July 23 P19, ‘Pensioner berates Tesco and its customers over parking misuse’.
Last year I became a grandparent and am helping my daughter who has gone back to work look after her.
I am in total agreement with the pensioner in the article last week about the lack of respect for other Tesco customers who continue to act in an unnecessary manner regarding parking.
But I would like to extend the discussion to include ‘baby and toddler’ parking spaces that are blatantly used by people without small children.
Today I was not able to find a baby and toddler space and had to park at the far side of the car park with my 18 month old granddaughter in tow. Standard spaces are narrower and it is not easy getting a small child in and out of her car seat whilst trying to put up a pushchair.
After shopping I noticed there was a space in the mothers and toddlers section, but it was being into by a builders van. I witnessed two young men jump out of the van to go into the store.
I took a photo as I was so disgusted at their behaviour and whilst it was no good to me, they were robbing the space of the next deserving parent.
Perhaps I should have said something but sometimes you can feel very intimidated, especially two very young and fit men.
I also find that on many occasions trolleys are just left in parking spaces rather than being taken back to the many trolley parks that are in the car park.
I unfortunately feel that this behaviour is on the increase and wonder just how lazy, self -centred or stupid these people are.
