A woman has slammed a cold-hearted car park attendant who fined her while collecting a steak pie for her blind mother.
A parking lot attendant in Ayr, South Ayrshire in Scotland, has come under fire again after another disgruntled resident, Martha McCrone, had to count the cost of venturing into town to pick up the having dinner.
This kind servant has wreaked havoc among the merchants of the Scottish coastal town.
Newmarket Street business owners were previously furious after receiving countless bookings.

Now a resident has pressured the same law enforcement officer accusing him of being “smug”.
Martha McCrone was stunned when she received a ticket after running into the store to pick up a ready-made order from Pollok Williamson Butchers on Ayr High Street earlier this month.
She had taken her elderly mother Agnes, who is blind and in a wheelchair, around town after their local store in Forehill ran out of orders.
But she was left full of regrets after the officer fined her after she had left her car for only a few minutes on Tuesday November 4.
A furious Ms McCrone said: ‘I can’t believe I got booked as I was just going to the butchers to pick up a steak pie.
“It was at 4 p.m. and it was pouring rain. I have a blue badge for my mother but there were no disabled bays at all.
“There was work going on on the other side of the road. I parked in a loading dock and walked two doors to the store.
“When I came back, the attendant was there. I went upstairs and tried to explain. He had a smug look on his face.
“He just ignored everything I told him, he just said ‘am I going to hand it to you or am I going to stick it on the car. I thought it was so cruel and evil to really do that.

Road chiefs have defended the attendant, saying non-disabled people should not ‘take advantage’ of their parking benefits while the blue badge holder is seated in the car.
But Martha has strongly defended accusations that she misused her mother’s blue badge.
She added: ‘I don’t abuse the blue badge but there was no space available and I was in the store for less than a minute.
“It would have taken me 10 minutes to get my mum out of the car and put her in a wheelchair.
“All of this has really put me off coming to town. There aren’t enough places available and it’s more of a hassle than it’s worth.
A spokesperson for Ayrshire Roads Alliance said: ‘Blue badge holders are permitted to park in many places normally prohibited, but there are rules which holders must comply with.
“One of the rules is that licensees must not allow non-disabled people to take advantage of their parking benefits while they are seated in the car.”
