Woman Believes Supermarkets Should Ditch Parent Parking And Install Rich Parking Spaces
Picture this: you're a parent with young kids and you're cruising a carpark looking for a space.
Because of your situation, you'd naturally look closest to the shopping centre or supermarket or the elevator because it would be helpful for you not to have to traverse across the whole block.
That's what most people expect.
However, one Melbourne woman reckons we need an overhaul of the system because, at the end of the day, money talks.
Diana Davenport from Toorak, a very wealthy suburb in Victoria's capital, has written to a newspaper to have her idea about car parking spaces ventilated to the masses.
In the post, Diana writes: "While visiting my local supermarket I was disgusted to find the best parking spaces nearest to the door are reserved for so-called 'Parent and Child Parking'.

"If you are fit to produce offspring, you should jolly well be able to walk across a carpark into the supermarket."
Here's where it gets real juicy.
"The best spaces should be reserved for people with the most expensive cars. It is us who are likely to spend the most money in the supermarket, and to have the most shopping brought back to our cars."
Whoo boy. That's a statement and a half if we've ever seen one. We don't think this is a trend that would kick off, even with all the money donations in the world. We also hope to hell that this is just a massive troll from someone claiming to be Diana, but if it isn't then it's incredibly shortsighted.
It goes without saying that parents need these spaces because, when you've got a kid or several, it can be difficult to get everyone, including the shopping, in and out.
Maybe this Toorak woman should wait a couple of years until she can apply for a disabled parking sticker and then she'll be front and centre.
