Oh my goodness, I think the lady in the wheel chair might have been having a bad day or maybe just came from the car park where she couldn't get a park in a disability parking bay or something, as I thought it was common knowledge that those aisles are not for the 'sole' purpose of wheel chair access, but anyone requiring wider access including Mums with wide prams.

Gee sounds like that woman had a chip on her shoulder. As fair as i'm aware the aisles are wider for the ease of use by disabled people but not solely for that purpose, they are also for use of anyone who needs more space (big prams etc) or anyone if the aisle is free.
I use the aisle if it is free.

You're definitely right there (common knowledge not being very common)!
Come to think of it, I don't think I have ever seen a specific 'disability access' sign either, but the ones we have around here have pictures of prams and wheelchairs on it etc, just alerting you to the fact that that particular aisle is wider etc.

It's for anyone use, if you can ever find one open. Mums use a mobility scooter and the amount times she can't get out of a supermarket is shocking.
