Good for you Holmesy. Every time they do it and get away with it, it just encourages them to do it again.

Good for you Holmesy - did you get any reply?

I always complain in Asda as they are the worst for people parking in the spaces, even the staff! And what about those idiots that leave the trolley at the side of the space so when you try to get parked it's moved so you have to get out and move it?

People who don't put their trolley back annoy me too mwr. It's sooo lazy. I was in Ikea the other day and came back from putting my trolley away and the girl parked behind me went to put theirs back and her oh said 'oh just leave it, staff will come and put it away!!' I gave them the dirtiest stare as they drove off then i had to move it so i could reverse out of my space!!! They just left it about a foot away from the car next to them, just waiting for a gust of wind to scrape it along their car!

Hi, the manager couldnt apologise enough. Everytime I go there now if there is a car in a baby bay without carseat I tell the customer services as soon as I go in, there arent too many things that wind me up but this really boils my pi**!! Laughing

The only thing about looking for carseats and not seeing one, is that some people take their little babies out in the car seat. I take Freya out in hers but i have a base left in my car, so people can see i have a child.

I think you can always tell cars that have little uns in them even if car seats not there there are generally toys or some bits and pieces on the back seat some where, I know my back seat always has some kind of toy or colouring book etc on it Laughing

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who gets wound up by this!
If you join the Tescos baby club you get a special permit badge to display to show you have a child however when my mum and I went to tescos especially because we thought we'd get a baby space there were none left most of them seemed to have no children and one even had a guy waiting to pick someone up with no child in there I went to complain and they told me they don't police the spaces!
I was furious and gave the woman a right ear full saying at the end of the day I had a c-section a week ago I'm in no fit state to carry my baby from the other end of the car park (mum couldn't do it cause of a bad back!)
If you write to their head office and complain though you can get vouchers as their way of saying sorry!

As for spaces when you're pregnant I remember what a pain that was my mum's got a polo so i needed loads of room as I had to manouver myself out!
I did hear a rumour that Asda do pregnant women spaces but I haven't seen any in my local one!

Oh and there's a facebook group you can join it's called Aaaaaaaaah stop parking the mother and children spaces if you have none.... I know there's a grammar mistake in there but the group is hilarious some of the pictures of what people have done are hilarious you wonder how the idiots are still breathing!

wow this has had some response!!

i totally agree with everything everyone has said in here, it really annoys the hell outa me when people park in disabled bays who are clearly not disabled! my mum is registered blind and she really relies on being close to a shop etc when she goes out as she cant see very well when theres a step up and a step down etc even with her white stick.

im sure i will be the same when it comes to baby and parent parking! its a pity you couldnt find the woman in the shop tracie!! some people just need to be told in my opinion!!

anyone else think they should invent pregnant lady parking thats close to shops (its hard work walking when you have a couple of stone bump sticking out in front of you!! Very Happy) need a space thats extra wide too lol im fed up of having to get out of the car before my bf parks it... kinda embarassing when i cant fit out Laughing

oh ps devon mum!! congratulations!! just seen ur ticker! didnt take long did it? Very Happy bet your over the moon!!

You guys are all lucky, in South Africa we dont have parking spaces like that. So you just lucky if you find a parking close to the front. Very annoying !!!

This always annoys me when we go to tescos. You see people parking in the disabled spaces and they are not even disabled or have the badges (incase they have a hidden disability) and also in the child spaces without any kids. I have said that when i have baby and if i see someone parking there I am going to say something to them or the security guard. They should really have someone that goes around checking that they are supposed to be parking there.
