    Well I've been with my mum when she has been the disabled incontinent person waiting for a disabled toilet because a family couldn't be bothered waiting in line. Lucky she wears "nappies" because she would've been the one having an accident on the floor.

I think deciding to put a hypothetical parent's comfort and ease over a hypothetical disabled person's ability to go to the toilet at all is a very warped decision.

    ETA if I go to the toilet with my kids there's a STRONG likelihood that one or both of them will decide they need to take a 10 minute dump. I'm always going to do everything I can to make sure that's not going to stop anyone else doing their own essential business. A parent always has the option of the regular toilets if my kids are taking 20 minutes.

    Ima just cut and paste now. I said I wasn't outraged. And here was my explanation as to why I think it's crazy twisted logic to use the disabled toilets ahead of parents rooms. And I have no other ways to word what I've said because I think it's pretty clear and simple.

    Well when I'm at the shops, we go into the parents' room, or I wait for my son outside whilst calling his name, or he comes in with us into the girls.

    Default Parent Room Rage

    Yep I've read your posts and I understand. But it's not illegal. In fact using the word "disabled" in becoming less common to acknowledge anyone with accessibility issues is entitled to use them.

    I get that you don't agree with their being used if the parents room is available. I guess it's a difference of opinion about what's appropriate.

    ETA got the Yeezy reference. How crazy has dude become lately?

    Yours are littler than mine and apparently make people uncomfortable if I take them into the parents room and I mentioned previously that six months ago he got yelled at by a woman for coming into the ladies with us.
    Feels like a no win situation!
    It's so absurd!!

    I agree. My son will not be going to the gents alone and none of the parents rooms at our shops have toilets so I'm kind of screwed really aren't I?

    Little bit!
    I'm honestly giggling to myself at this thread (not the OP, love you @Mamasupial) but just at how as a parent you will never do anything without being criticised either openly or on a forum online!

    Do you know what I think? And excuse my French..... F**** those nosey, rude, judgey nincompoops and just keep taking them in with you to the parent rooms and also your son in the ladies room if that's what you're comfortable with. It's not like he's 15. Can't believe that someone yelled at your little boy, that's disgusting.
    As for the disabled toilets, I honestly had no idea that we were "allowed" to use them until reading this thread. I've always just thought they were off limits unless you were, well, disabled. Interesting.
