My family went to Ikea recently and attempted to park in the Family Friendly designated parking area. Having a toddler, I know from experience how challenging it can be to get from my car into the store without a struggle. It is very considerate of Ikea to provide these parking spaces close to the entrance. I wish more stores would adopt the Family Friendly parking concept!
Anyway, I was appalled at the number of people parking in the Family Friendly area WITHOUT children or babies. It is not my place to call these people out, but trust me when I tell you I wanted to give them a piece of my mind. I know Ikea cannot patrol who parks there and it’s basically an honor system, but what kind of idiot doesn’t understand what the sign means?
Are you guilty of parking in a Family Friendly or Expectant Mother parking spot without having children or being pregnant? If you are, please be considerate of those who really need the spaces!
