Parking seems to be one of those issues that really riles some people up very quickly.
One parent, from Australia, recently discovered this the hard way, after a visit to a supermarket with her family.
The unnamed woman claims to have dropped her husband and three children at the shop entrance, before circling around the car park to find a space.
However unbeknown to her, a stranger was watching and became very angry over her actions. They decided to take matters into their own hands and left a note on the woman’s car.
When she returned to her vehicle, she was appalled by the “nasty” message which had been left on her tyre.
The letter branded her a “fat piece of s**t”.
She shared a look at it with The Daily Mail and the whole thing reads: “You should not park here.
“You got no pram or baby with you, you fat piece of s***.”
Alongside a photo of the note, the mum explained that her youngest child is a one year old and that she had two baby seats and two prams in her car, which the stranger would have been able to see if they’d taken a closer look.
She then called the person out for making assumptions about her, saying: “Don’t jump to conclusions if you don’t see me push a pram or hold a baby as I dropped my husband off at the entrance with the kids while I went and found a car spot.
“People are so nasty and quick to judge. I hope whoever wrote this note gets their facts right before they judge anyone.”
Although it’s not against the law to park in a parent space in a car park if you do not have a child with you, some supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Lidl and Tesco will issue fines if shoppers are caught breaking the rules.
