So glad my shopping centre has valet parking , I couldn't handle the stress that apparently goes with parking your car!
I forgot to directly answer the OP
Don't feel bad if you leave the pram behind, not many people can push a trolley as well as a pram, and the ones who try seem to block up entire aisles lol.
I love a good old car park police thread!!
Every time one is started, I picture some random hubber going around checking for car seats in cars parked in PWP.
Relax people! It's just a car park!
As far as the parks go, I stopped using them when my kids didn't require a heap of extras with them, like nappy bag, pram, etc.
Once this baby comes along I will use them again. For a while.
I think it's selfish when people that don't need them are using them, but I can't say I check their car or write notes or really care much beyond calling them a name or two in my head. Plus what's the point in saying something? You can't argue with an idiot....
And back to not being serious...I totally tooted my own horn But all in good fun I promise, the dramatic examples used to explain the scenarios that occur in a car park were hilarious. Not because they are untrue, but because they make out like they are the only people who have ever had to walk through a car park with a tantruming toddler and a newborn. I don't park in pwp parks unless there are no other parks available. Maybe that makes me a horrible person but I also help unload trolley's for the mum at the supermarket who is trying to control her bored children, or I push their trolley to the car for them when they have a toddler who is trying to climb out of the trolley so they can safely get to their car (regardless of where it is), or take the hand of the child who went to Aldi with his dad and his dad had no money for the trolley and no bags so left with his arms full of groceries and no way to hold his son...I also unlocked the car for them and waited until the father could safely watch his son get in to the car.
So really...I'm not mean, I'm not a witch...I'm not even inconsiderate. I think pwp parks are ridiculous and should be removed...that doesn't make me a horrible person.
That's all folks.
