    The worst I've ever done is put a Coles baby club pamphlet on the windscreen of a car that had no infant seat and it was a middle aged man by himself. I didn't plan it that way, I had it in my hand because I'd picked it up for myself.

    Saw him walk into the shops and my friend laughed and said that I should put it on there as a joke. So I did. We giggled about it for a while and that was about it. Some people have too much time on their hands and too much angry in their system.

    My kids is a terror on public transport! He's such a good boy but when you get him on a train or a bus, he turns into somebody else.
    He's 21 months old and I avoid public transport like the plague.

    Public transport was just a suggestion. We use it all the time (and I have 3 kids under 7 and one on the way).

    Yes not everyone has to use it so no need to get so defensive. When we lived in Melbourne it was just such a normal part of life. We had friends with 5 kids who couldn't have survived without it.

    havent read all responses but i have to admit i am guilty of leaving a note on a car. It was a 35 degree day and there was a big dog in a car and the window was down about 1 cm. I couldnt help myself (this is something i feel VERY strongly about). I left a note saying 'Dogs die in hot cars'. This was an issue where a dog could have died. The person who wrote this about the PWP space was just having a whinge so they need to relax a bit IMO.

    I also once put a note on a car that kept parking on a blind corner....DANGEROUS!!!

    I wonder how parents of older generations would deal with prams and kids .. I think we are such whining and whinging bunch of mums now ... If it is too hard to park in a normal spot and get kids out .. Maybe just stay home. .. It really is not that hard!!!

    I have to catch pt as i don't drive and while the big shopping centres generally accommodate buses fairly well, trams and trains are a different story. It would be awesome if they built shopping centres with subway trains! That would be ideal.

    Half the time I don't even realise what a PWP park is so don't ever seek them out to be honest.

    I am always mindful of not 'breaking rules' when it comes to where I can and can't park (generally speaking, not talking about PWP specifically) so even though I have 4 small children I will park where I find a convenient spot as opposed to where I think I am 'entitled' to park.

    As for the OP's friend's note, I think the writer may be a highly strung person, who knows, but I personally wouldn't leave a note over something like that. The only time I have left a note on a car was to alert someone that I had called the authorities about leaving their Dog in a hot car at the Airport. (I went to seek help for the Dog after leaving the note).

    Both very valid reasons.

    My friend said there was also a few PWP spots when she parked and left so she wasn't sure why this woman went nutso

    At the end of the day, this is what we know. We don't know what it's like not to have prams, or formula, or elevators etc. We have it much easier these days but that's all we know.
    I think whinging and whining is more acceptable these days as well. We don't have to pretend to be the perfect Suzie homemaker who has it all together.
    Whinging and whining is only healthy. It's what keeps us sane : )
    And I don't mean any disrespect with this most. None at all.

    I don't think anybody was getting defensive...
