Bending the parking rules

I’VE become accustomed to young people showing a total disregard for rules and other people, but I’ve noticed that some pensioners seem to be just as bad.

In the supermarket car park the other day I noticed a doddery old couple, who between them had more wrinkles than a lorry load of McCoys crisps, parking in one of the Parent and Child parking spaces bang outside the front of the store.

There was a even a great big sign saying Parent and Child parking and another subtle clue in the form of a graphic in each parking bay showing a man, woman, and child. It couldn’t have been any more obvious.

But these two didn’t care, they just shuffled off into the store at a snail’s pace.

Later on I saw this very same couple at the Basket Only express checkout with a huge trolley full of goods.

These are just a couple of examples. Old people seem to think the rules don’t apply to them, and they can park where they want, and generally do as they please.

Yet it is the older generation who are the first to gripe about anti-social behaviour and the moral decline of our nation’s youth.

They should get their own house in order, first.
