Man swore at me and my daughter in Wirral carpark
2:40pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in Letters
HAVING decided to visit West Kirby today we decided to shop in Morrisons.
Since I have a young child I thought I would see if the parent and toddler spaces where available.
There was one free which is a rare sight but the car in front quickly nipped into the space.
To my disappointment it wasn't a parent with a young child who got out of the car but instead an older gentleman (55-60), who was able-bodied.
Since I have seen this more and more lately I politely informed the gentleman that he had parked in a parent and toddler space to which he replied with some expletives offensive to both me and my daughter.
I hear so many people talk about youngsters having no respect nowadays but when the older generation speak like this what type of example are they setting and what hope is there for teaching youngsters?
I was disgusted by the gentleman's language and continued on my way with merely a disappointed look pointed in his direction.
Had I been on my own I'm not sure this would have been the case. I was, however, very temped to park in the disabled bay opposite his car but thought better of it.
Whether the gentleman was a blue badge holder or not it is about respect, and he certainly didn't have any.
