    parking in a handicap space

    I decided to walk my son in to school today instead of dropping him off. I had to park a little ways down from the doors. it was kinda of cool with a light mist. the handicap spaces were unoccupied till a small suv pulls up in one the spots. a female late 20s jumps out and retrieves a small child. they quick walk to the doors. now I look at the small suv and do not see a handicap plaquer hanging from the mirror nor do I see a handicap tag. my frustration builds because this one of my pet pevees. then I see it on the driverside rear her obama sticker. guess she was handicap after all.

    Very true but she still deserved a ticket.

    As a son who has had to escort his elderly handicapped mother around and with a spouse that assists an electric wheelchair bound young lady with MD go to college in a van with a chair lift on the side, I can definitely sympathize with you.

    I'm not surprised. The dumbest drivers down here all seem to have Obama bumper stickers.

    I hate when people park in HC stalls and look like they are completely normal, no signs of defect.... Makes me want to clip them with a car door to give them a reason for park there
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    JLK, you are wrong bro. Those spaces are for the PHYSICALLY handicapped, not the mentally handicapped.

    Before I was a cop I had a boss who had a HP permit and looked normal. He had crones disease and was put on prednisone on a really high dose for a while when he was younger. They realized too late he was on too much and had osteoporosis so bad he had the bones of a 102 year old woman. He had so many spinal fractures and crush he shrunk several inches. If he tripped and fell on a curb he would literally shatter. So he looked normal and parked in a handicap space but it was very much legitimate. You never know.

    Keying a car is illegal, but at times, satisfying.

    Or there are the caregivers/friends/drivers for someone with a legit disability who are there to pick them up...

    I'm not at all saying there aren't folks who abuse someone else's handicap plaque -- but sometimes there are legitimate reasons, too.

    (Of course, if there's not... I'm all for the "handicap 'em" approach!)

    I prefer to make an honest person out of them
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.
