I had been undecided about doing this post, after taking the first photograph in the supermarket car park last week, but this week I have been so incensed by the fact that these thoughtless, inconsiderate, rude, selfish little morons, who think that because they own either a big or expensive car that they can just park where and how they want - regardless of how many other people are trying to park their car, are obviously on the increase.

Unfortunately this practice would appear to be spreading ...
.................. to people with smaller/less expensive cars.

This one, as you can see, was parked by a blonde -

so there may be an excuse for her: she probably cannot park in a space smaller than a football pitch or "I deserve two spaces because I just got a manicure" .

But you know why they keep doing this - because they constantly get away with it, because the supermarket management won't take action against them. They should be clamped and have to pay a large fine to have their car released and perhaps they would think twice before doing this again. The same applies to those able bodied idiots who park in the bays for drivers with disabilities. (Classic example here:)

There is a saying (I believe) about the size of the brain being in inverse proportion to the size of the car.

I have been thinking of getting some sticky labels printed with a sarcastic (or otherwise) suggestion for drivers like this that I could then stick on their windscreen but here is a suggestion I found on another blog :

One way to issue a corrective to asshats like this, short of keying: keep a tube of lipstick in your glove compartment for pithy messages on the jerk's winshield. It takes about 10 minutes to wipe ASSHOLE off in rouge red, and they'll get the message. And no permanent damage to fck up your karma.

So, as you can see, this would appear to be a world-wide phenomenon. At least the Scottish Government seems to be taking some notice of the disabled parking problem and to quote from their article

Past behaviour is often a good indicator of future behaviour. It follows that if a car park provider operates a clear, reliable and consistent approach to the enforcement of reserved bays for people with disabilities then, over time, people will become aware of the consequences should they continue to misuse them.

Any suggestions about what to print on a sticky label will be gratefully received.
