    I knew it was wrong. Just a comment someone made about people shouldn't say it's ok to just duck in an return a dvd. Well that's basically what we did. I said to dh he shouldn't park but when he gave his reasoning I thought it was fair enough. No one was being hurt in this instance was my reasoning.
    Anyway I know no one agrees. That's fine.
    So did you stay in the car?

    I will say Jontu that I do admire your honesty in posting in this thread knowing that it would be unpopular. I really do try never to upset people, but this subject is close to my heart.

    Just a slightly different thought/reasoning to put out there. The aldi near my house has 3 disabled parks. Usually the carpark is at least 3/4 empty most of the time. But there has always been at least 1 disabled park that always has someone parked (this is with someone with a disability sticker btw).

    Quite a few times they are all full.

    I think people who disabilities actually prefer the smaller shops. Less walking - less busy so for them it is easier than a larger centre.

    So they may prefer these places even though 90% of the general public do not go there.

    I'm old enough to remember the Seinfeld episode where George parked in a disabled spot and his car was destroyed by angry citizens.

    So I don't ever.

    That's nothing to do with age, simply good taste in comedy and appreciation for excellence.

    And just to clarify it's just this particular shop that we happened to park there. Not other ones that are normally busier and have cars in the disabled spot.

    It's not always about the distance to the shops and this is something that gets referenced a lot but it's not the biggest issue for those with wheelchairs. Cars that are designed for wheelchairs actually need the wider spaces to get the chairs out - either with ramps or a hydraulic hoist system - my sisters chair could go faster than I walked, distance wasn't an issue, we needed the space.
