Its true, us parents have this little luxury called ‘parent and child parking’ and we are sick of having to share the spaces.
Now I have a disabled badge and children, so it leaves alot to be desired when we have nowhere to park. Not only do people who have no children feel free to take these spaces therefore pissing all over our parental bonfire, but older people, with disabled badges and no children, think its ‘okay’ to park in the parent and child when there are no disabled spaces?!
How is this okay?!
If I didn’t have my disabled badge, I would not park in there spaces, however why do they think its okay to park in the parent and child just because they have a badge?
THE CLUE IS IN THE NAME.
I am sick of trying to use the parent and child when I have both girls only to have some old person take it because they think it is there god given right?!
Its not, its for parents like myself, who have children who like to scream and smush crisps and biscuits everywhere when the door is open. We are given these spaces so we can open our doors wide and wrestle our children into the all important car seats.
If we are given a tiny space at the other end of the car park, we will dink the car next door because we are probably already irate at walking our tantruming children all the way to the other end of the car park after discussing with them why they cannot have the £50 toy!
That is why our parent and child spaces are sacred. No accidental car door bumping and getting the noisy, small grubby ones into the car much faster so we can sit down and take a deep breath.
Or cry with relief that its over.
So, we would appreciate it if you would stop taking our spaces, you have your own and I am sure if a mother without a blue badge decided to park in a disabled space we would feel your wrath and a very hefty fine.
