A mum-of-three was devastated after a stranger left a note her car calling her a “fat piece of s***” for parking in a pram-only spot when out shopping.
The woman had parked her car after dropping her husband and children at the entrance to the shopping centre.
Her youngest child is just one year old.
When the family-of-five returned to the car after their day shopping the mum found a note written on a napkin stuck on her left tyre.
In all capitals, the note said: “You should not park here.
“You got no pram or baby with you, you fat piece of s*** (sic).”
Do you think the note-writer was in the wrong? Tell us in the comments...
The upset mum said that the abuser was “harsh” and “nasty” and that they needed to get their facts straight.
She told Daily Mail Australia : “Yes, I have a double pram in my car!
“Yes, I have two baby car seats in my car."
She continued: “The point is, don’t jump to conclusions if you don’t see me push a pram or hold a baby as I dropped my husband off at the entrance with the kids while I went and found a car spot.
“People are so nasty and quick to judge.”
In the UK, private parking firms can issue fines for the misuse of mum and baby bays.
However, in Australia, news.com.au says that this is not the case for pram-only spaces.
They are available in shopping centres to allow people extra space to the sides of their cars for getting prams and little ones in and out more easily.
However, people have been served warning stickers for using the spaces without need.
