On Wednesday we took our nine week old DGS out, and parked in a 'parent and toddler' space outside the supermarket. We were going to do a bit of shopping and have lunch whilst he was asleep.
DH and I were getting the pram out of the tailgate when a woman (early sixties at a guess) drove up, stopped broadside across the back of our car, got out and demanded that we parked in a 'disabled' space so that she could have our 'parent and toddler' space. She lost the plot when I pointed out that neither DH or myself is disabled, and that we had a young baby with us, and were therefore parked perfectly legally. She had a rant about how unfair I was being, that we'd taken the last available 'parent and toddler' space, that we probably didn't have a baby with us at all, and that her grandson would now have to walk across the car park! As she was quite obviously unhinged we chose to ignore her, and eventually she drove away.
We got our DGS into his pram and walked towards the shop to discover she was already walking back out with just a few items of shopping.
She looked at me pushing the pram, and started shouting about how we should have parked in a 'disabled' space. I didn't reply, just pointed to the pram and walked on, at which point she started shouting all over the car park, "Shut up you stupid fat cow"! I admit that at that point I replied "Yes, I'm fat, and you're an ignorant bigot"!
Her GS, the reason that she wanted our parking space, who was walking behind her, being totally ignored by her because she was so busy screaming at me, was at least seven years old, so not really in need of a 'parent and toddler' parking space anyway!
I wonder if the parents of her grandchild have any idea of what a very poor role model she is. I also wonder why she thought we were disabled, although maybe I should chalk that down to her being a 'bit odd'
