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.
YAY!! I love that you did that!

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

<quoted text>Have you ever tried Woodchuck Hard Cider, from Vermont? I really enjoy it and never feel heavy, like with beer or ales....
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.

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.

Remember when we had a discussion about peeps parked imn handiczpped spots and some of you were pretty vocal about how much it bothered you and you would take action...
From the Orlando Sentinel Ticked Off column
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.

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.

I don't care about the placard so much, if the person seems to use it. Like if 85 yo granny is slooooowwww moving and parks there, but doesn't want the handicapped thing in her car (dignity), that's okay with me. But parking in that spot without official permission means you better be pretty obvious in your need to park there.

I saw a guy park there once with no stickers, in his fancy convertible... and by the way he got out, it reminded me of how men I've known have walked the day after getting a vasectomy. I cut him some slack.

I had surgery on both feet one December, had to park in handicapped spots to do my christmas shopping (STUPID, I was in such pain! where was the internet back then?!). I'm glad they were there for me.

Yeah apparently that's exactly what I said. You'restupid. Even if I *had* said that, I would draw your attention to the first amendment, so yanno STFU.

You just need to accept the fact that you are a big fat racist, misogynist, homophobe, window licker who still needs to be riding on the short bus and I am ORDERS of magnitude smarter than you. Actually, almost everyone on this site (and the world in general) is smarter than you, even actual window lickers.

This was fun, so rage on babe, but I have real life to deal with today.

I'm over being bored and I have some real life stuff to tend to, yanno helping all the Muslims become citizens and infiltrate and stuff. Coming soon to the mutt's town to enforce that he live by their rules, worship their god, pray their way and live under sharia law. I am so evil.

Our Lowe's has a redonk amount of handicapped parking spots. I've yet to see one space filled, much less the 20 or so they feel is needed for a home improvment store. Do they think people are like "Well, I broke my leg. I'd better re-grout the kitchen and put in some new baseboards..."
