Ha, yeah. I need to develop a drinking game. Chug anytime:

--somebody complains about the paint color
--when being shown the enormous master closet, the wife is like "Where are you going to put your clothes, honey?"
--"open concept" is mentioned
--the realtor shows them a house that's 50K over their max budget
I'm cracking up reading this...jealous that I didn't think of these...this is so true. Or the toilet is awesome.

Nick is loving Pumpking Ale (I think by Southern Tier). If you love hoppy beers and pumpkin stuff, he says it's the only good pumpkin-flavored beer out there. (He loves p umpkin stuff but is very picky.)

Speaking of side mirrors, when Chris was 2 and I was 26 I had one, for me. Someone who thought I didn't "look disabled" thought it was amusing (or justice) to break one of my side mirrors. It's better now, but people still look at me sideways because it's not obvious...no wheel chair, apparently. I refuse to answer anyone's questions if they demand an answer.
My opinion is that unless proven otherwise I have every right to use it to park wherever I like for as long as I like. If someone doubts my veracity, call a damn cop. I have a card in my wallet with my name that matches the placard number. I have been asked for it twice leaving a city parking lot. Not so much any other time, and those were both official city employees doing their job. If you park in a city lot there is no fee.
I don't care what anyone thinks. I have more issues than I want to think about it. My entire team of doctors (I have six specialists that keep me alive) thinks I need this, the state agrees with me. Who the FU(K does any person who doesn't know me AT ALL think they are to demand proof? Call a cop. I'll wait.
Not directed at you personally, but when someone has asked me what my disability is (are, they are multiple) my response has always been some version of GFY my medical information is private. OTOH I know someone who uses her mom's thing like the person you are describing. Or at least did. I haven't seen her in 15 years, but I have no reason to think she would have stopped on her own.
I was in the car with a friend who still had her deceased mother's placard. I told her not to use it and felt embarrassed about it. Apparently, someone decided we didn't look disabled (we didn't) and called the cops. She tried telling the cop she was her mother but somehow he called it in and got mom's DOB...busted. Taught her a lesson and cost her a lot of money. Now she has a temp one for her knees and won't even use it unless they're really hurting her.

Let me preface by saying, I've never parked in handicapped spot. I have no intention to ever do so. In fact, my MIL, who has 2 handicapped placards, tried to get me to use one of them so I could park next to her at the hospital instead of driving to the far end of the lot when we were visiting her newborn grandchild. I declined and drove to the far end of the lot.

That being said, I am 100% on team Mimi. I don't care if I'm doing something wrong or if you've incorrectly assumed I'm doing something wrong. If I don't know you, am not doing something that directly affects you, and you have no authority over me...FU. I don't owe you shit. Take your chances and call a cop.

The nerve that Chel has to question someone with a placard that just does not "look" handicapped to her is utterly astounding.

Eh, my mom couldn't even tell our baby pictures apart and there was only 2 of us, 5 years apart. I thought it was so easy. My sister had that super-fine sticky-uppy baby hair and I didn't. Plus, she had pacifiers and I didn't.

Yeah, nope. Not my job to figure out what is or isn't wrong with people. My mom had a permanent placard after bring diagnosed with cancer, and if somebody would have said something to her, mild-mannered me would have freaked the everloving feck out on them. When she was feeling better, she wouldn't use it. If my dad was driving, he'd drop her off at the door and go park in no man's land like he always does.

I have a second one that the husband keeps in his car. I rarely drive his car, but just in case. He OTOH refuses to even think about using it and argues with me when I'm WITH him about using it. He is just way too paranoid.

There are a lot of people who do things they shouldn't be doing, but most of us don't do really egregious things. I figure someone is doing something shady Karma, or the police, will eventually catch up with them.

If it's something really bad (e.g. someone being attacked, someone throwing a brick through the window of a business, beating their kid, kid or pet left in a car, etc.) then by all means, call the police. Right now. But a handicapped placard? Really?

If you are really that up in arms that I don't look to you as if I should have it, go ahead, call a cop. In the mean time I will go on about my business. I will not wait for the cop as you have no right to detain me (the general you) and if they don't show up by the time I leave, oh well... If you're that worried about it, take my license plate # and give it to them. I'll have coffee with them while we laugh at you.

There have been times that someone without a placard or plates is parked in "my spot" but I don't get all pissy about it. I think that 1) they are a doosh or 2) they forgot. I've forgotten. I had to go tell the judge that I forgot...twice...in one month's time. In my defense I was distracted a lot that month and pretty brain dead. The second time he told me that if I came in again for forgetting within 6 month he was going to fine me for being stupid. He didn't say "stupid" but I can't remember his exact words, but that's what he meant. I agreed with him.(._.)

I never go off on anyone for being so dooshy to me though...not exactly. I think I've only ever said GFY once, but tat person was a major glass-bowl. Mostly I've shrugged and actually said "call a cop." I've seen people park without a plate and not hang up a placard a few times (mine hangs all the time...see in court twice in one month above) and no one is allowed to move it if they drive my car) and I've said "you forgot your placard." Every single one of them was like "ohshit thanks!" They had forgotten to hang it. <shrug>

If someone DOES use them illegally here at least the fine is around $500.00.

He is already LHWBM (living here while being Muslim) and will be registering Democrat and will vote democrat. He is also going to sponsor his entire immediate family of MUSLIMS as well. At least if I can do anything about it. Just because it will pissyouthehelloff. Hell maybe I will tell them they need to move to your town.

First it was a decade, then it was six years, then it was three months. Which is it? I called bullsht when you first posted about it and it turns out I was right. Don't think I'm the only one who notices your inconsistency.

And Jesus loves you.
