Yep, he just did an excellent job of proving your point. There are plenty of countries with the "my way or the highway" regimes where opinions cannot be freely expressed. He would feel right at home in any one of them.

To the couple who followed me into a restaurant: Just because I pulled in the handicap spot at a restaurant in Dr. Phillips and did not look handicap to your eyes does not mean I did not just get done with open heart surgery. I do not appreciate the fact that you followed me into the restaurant and stated your opinion to the manager on duty that if he did not ask me to move my vehicle you would not eat there. He refused and you left! Which I thought was wonderful, until I went outside to my vehicle and realized you had keyed it down the driver's side completely. For a couple your age to do this kind of vandalism is childish.
wow. I do know a few people who need handicapped parking but don't seem to need it on the surface. While I HATE people who use the spots when they shouldn't, I"d not confront someone over it.

I think your last post was taken off. This was meant to reply to it.
Or I was so disturbed about his idiocy and replied to his in error.

I did, and it felt good. I was driving my mom and stepdad who could barely walk due to a stroke to a tire store. Just as I was starting to pull into the handicap space this gorilla guy pulled in in front of me, no H tags. I did drop them off at the curb. It so happened that we ended up right in back of him in line. I loudly berated him about what he did. He was very uncomfortable standing there with all those people listening....and my mom was proud.

It's pretty good, but Angry Orchard Traditional Dry would be my top pick.

you and me could split the variety pack and get along great. You can have all the granny smiths. That's the one i don't care for. I'll take the amber and the 802

The Woodchuck brand is pretty common here. Most bars I have been in keep a 6 pack in back unless they are promoting they have cider. I have not seen Winter or 802 though. I was in the liquor store on Sunday and wound up giving a sort of guided tour to an lady who was undecided. I would have noticed if there was a different variety. I am not sure if you were coming around here last February. There was a large cider tasting with multiple orchards/breweries at Navy Pier. I wrote up a summary , largely for Tonka. If you want to explore the stuff, let me know and I will resurrect my notes.

I like that one,too. The regular Angry Orchard is a tad too close to apple juice for me.

I don't like ales. Yuck. I'm a wimp beer drinker, though.

French martinis anyone?

yes. Woodchuck had a splecial brew for each season, available at the start of the given season. Winter is my favorite, and although its supposed to be available for 3 months, they sold out around here in about a month 2 years in a row. So i stocked up last year. Bought up every bottle i could to last me the year.

How's the belgian. I was told it kinda taste like beer. Don't like beer, so i never tried it

If you have the handicap sticker, I will keep my yap shut no matter how spry you are.(like the dude at home depot on sat. He actually was walking faster than me).

But if you dont have the handicap card, dont even try to park there no matter how much you need it. I will call the cops.

Same here. Nick loves hoppy hoppy hoppy ales. I don't even like the smell. The only beer I'll buy for myself at home is Harp or Killian's Red.
