As I drove into Sainsbury's car park on Saturday, I saw that it was busy.
I turned towards the parent and child spaces. A large black Saab flew into the space I had my eye on.
As I looked for another space I watched the Saab. Three strapping lads got out and sauntered towards the store. There were no children in the car. This bothers me. Selfish bleeps, I thought.
I found a space, further away from the entrance than I would have liked. I fumed as I put my boys in a trolley. As I stomped towards the shop I saw a sign stating that improper use of the parent and child spaces could result in a £50 fine.
A £50 fine. Hmmm.
I turned round, wrote down the Saab's registration number, then marched to Customer Services.
I gave the details to the delighted woman on the counter. I'm guessing she was a parent too!
I was shaking as I moved away. I zoomed round the fruit and veg and hid behind the bananas.
The tannoy bing-bonged, 'Would the owner of black Saab... please contact customer services.
I hope they did get fined. Lazy, inconsiderate so and so's!
While I was typing this post I flicked onto Twitter and saw that the lovely Lorraine at Ramblings of a Mum on the Run had just posted a very similar rant. You can read it here.
