I usually do all my shopping online and food shopping at m&s after working there or sometimes pop to Asda after midnight, however this week i went to 2 supermarket car parks and everyone is just in such a panic to find a space. I nearly had a crash at Morrisons car park the other day too!
I attempted to park in the space right nearest to the trolley park. I hit the side of the thing. My drivers side mirror took a beating!
our 'out of town; tesco is decent but the ones in town are very close and generally packed.
I work on a morrisons car park collecting the trolleys and all that shizznit.
Old people are the worse i have found, the go really slowly, dont notice your there untill the very last moment and nearly hit you.
Than you get the idiots who take a 90 degree bend wayyyyyyyyyy too quickly and end up on the other side of the road nearly crashing.
People reversing out, i swear a lot of people dont have reverse lights working, and some of them just dont look where they have been reversing, someone reversed right into me a few months back.
Speeking from a trolley boys view... People come driving at you, expecting you to move, i dont know if people understand how hard it is to stop and move them things quickly.
People park in stupid places, on double yellow lines, or in the disabled spots, and theres actully nothing we can do, not having the power to clamp or fine, we have to put a leaflet thing on the car saying not to park there.
People dont understand the concept of a zebra crossing, nearly been hit several times people racing around corners only to see me half way across one.
You might of gathered, i dont like supermarket car parks much.
Theyre all ******s...you see trolleys hit cars..terrible
The worst of all though, not the trolleys, not the blind old people, but the people that bang their ****ing doors into yours and think its normal. This is the reason why i park over two spots.
The parent and child bays are quite wide...
I had one angry mother storm up to me the other day when i parked outside sainsburrys. I allowed her to rant for a while... at which point my niece stepped out of the passenger side and asked "when are we going in uncle jon?"
Although, to be honest, I tend to use P+C bays all the time. When questioned the standard responce is "this (gesturing at the BV8) is my baby" The standard spaces are too small so they can pack more cars in = more profit. I feel my paint is more important than those that choose to procreate.
Disabled spaces are, however, another matter.... dont park in those. I have disabled relitives. One of which cant walk at all. Its incredibly inconvenient pushing a wheelchair from accross the other side of a carpark.
Im not a trolley boy but part of my weekend job at m&s is collecting the trolleys from the front of the retail car park and bring them into the store. They are so hard to control and especially when you try to push them up the ramp into the store.
Drivers just expect you to get out their way, and the number of people who just walk in my way when im pushing trolleys which i cant control is out of hand.
