A Woolworths supermarket shopper’s two unbelievable acts in the carpark of one NSW store has left an onlooker fuming.
Sharing on Reddit, the Newcastle resident said he was gobsmacked to see a woman park her Toyota Rav4 over two “Parents With Prams” parking spots.
Even more infuriating, the Reddit user noted that the driver didn’t have any children with her – or any children’s car seats in her car.
“The audacity,” he wrote in the Reddit post. “She didn’t even have a child seat.”
The situation took a further twist when the onlooker approached the driver – but she still headed into Woolies, leaving her vehicle in the same spot.
“I confronted her and she just said ‘I know, I know’ looking really apologetic and preceded to go into Woolies without moving the car,” he said. “So mad.”
Reddit users were shocked by the motorist’s actions.
“It’s not that she parked in the marketing gimmick car space it’s that she parked over two spots,” said one.
Added another: “Exactly, the lack of children is just the icing on the a***hole cake that is taking up two spots.”
‘This is really douchey,” wrote a third.
Added one more: “She going the right way for a soiled nappy smeared across her windscreen.”
Parents parking debate
But the Reddit post also opened up debate over whether “Parents With Prams” parking spots should be in supermarket car parks.
“Agreed. How she parked is fantastic a***holery,” said one.
“But pram parking has driven me batty for years, considering the limited number of disabled parking that is provided, and I’ve never met a pro-pram parking person who wasn’t entitled AF.”
Wrote another: “Exactly. Our parents, grandparents etc coped without these spots.”
Added a third: “Should be ‘Parents Without Prams’ in my opinion. Why do you need to park closer because your baby is on wheels?”
Said one more: “Not defending the a***holery of not parking between the designated lines but those ‘Parents With Prams’ spots are nothing but marketing.
“They’re not legally defined as a disabled spot is. They’re not there to help people with mobility issues.
“They’re there to get cashed up stay-at-home mothers swanning about town, in the door and spending money.”
