Why have Lewes grannies got together to queue for Waitrose parking spaces at the entrance to the car park (where they can't see where the spaces are) thereby preventing customers from entering the car park to find a space. I notice that some idiots do it at Aldi now as well and in so doing block the road outside.

Responding as a 'granny' I have sympathy with this post. It is maddening and sometimes I risk the furious looks and even rude remarks when I drive past the queue at the front as I know that there will be a space right up in front of the store. I actually shop on foot with a trolley most days but Sometimes I take the car and at busy times, this is always a problem. It will be solved when Waitrose finally sort out the car park when the North Street Quarter finally gets built. It's being delayed at the moment by lack of staff at SDNP to sign off the final planning permissible. You couldn't make it up...

Pathetic response, Oh. So anything that isn't death and famine people are supposed to suck up or absorb? Things can be inconveniencing and annoying, no, they're not life-threatening but they do provoke an emotional response which tells us something needs to be be improved.

I've driven round the queue of grannies a few times convinced there is a space in front free, and then there hasn't been and I've had to do the reverse of shame

Yes the reverse of shame it comes to us all once in a while. Mind you we'll be able to check the front spaces again soon when the leaves drop off the bushes and you can look in before Chaulas

This wasn't meant to be anti elderly. But i expect that some of you waiting in the queue will have noticed a fair few pensioners in the blocking spot just inside the car park.

People with absolutely no manners and inflated sense of their own importance over take the queue.
Probably the same ignorant twerps who insist on parking at a 45 degree angle thus taking two spaces and bashing others customer's cars with their trolley for good measure

I'm never sure what a 'good measure' is. Some people say 100 metres, others 100 yards. My favourite is 6lb 2ozs.

The car parking spaces are too narrow for drivers who can afford safer cars that have the height and size to allow passenger safety in the event of a collision. Sorry, but that's the simple truth. We can't fit in just a single space. Do not think badly of us for being safer.

Good point Jennifer. The spaces need to be a bit bigger, and a big screen showing the spaces round the corner would be a cheap solution

All Waitrose have to do to provide a short term solution to their parking chaos is to demolish the old Wenban sheds and then triple their parking space. Their arrogance and sense of self entitlement in making life difficult for their customers is also regularly demonstrated by the long queues, unmanned tills and "managers"with their noses in the air, ignoring the chaos. My only consolation is that, perhaps, the Lewes Smuggeratti deserve no better.

Jennifer ... are you seriously suggesting that bigger cars are safer cars? They might feel safer to their occupants, but all of the statistics show that bigger cars cause more damage to others, including pedestrians, when they are involved in crashes.

I am not in any way responsible for uneducated idiots who walk or cycle unsafely. My duty is to my family who ride in our cars, where I will have no compromises regarding their safety and their comfort, or mine for that matter. We are doing the best for them. There's no arguing against that at all.

Watching the parking chaos in Waitrose is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. It would be great if there was a clearer system though
