Started this on another thread and realised this is the correct one.
Comments were made about allotted car parking spaces, ie, Mum's with babies, etc. These were, of course, needed, when these special baby car seats came into being. Need to be able to open the door wide enough to get seat with baby out. However, do they really need to be so close to the doors of the supermarket? Why is these days that everything is centred round parents with young kids?
'In the olden days' we Mums never took kids with us to shop. I would look after friend's kids and she would look after mine. Happy situation, kids were happy, mums were happy and other shoppers happy. Why does a whole family need to do supermarket shopping? Why is the shopping precinct full of families over the weekend or Bank Holidays. Kids a pain in the neck, parents shouting - or is this just where I live?
I sound like an old grouch but I'm very fed up with the way Senior Citizens are knocked all the time and everything now seems to be centred around how to improve the life of people with young families. We had to do it on our own so why can't they.
I'm strong. I can take your criticism. Feel free
Derek, great to know that you have got out of the ratrace.
