That's generous of you.<quoted text>
True. Edog was being a doosh and it pissedmeoff. There are only *so many* handicapped spots so if people get all butt hurt because one isn't available, they need help. I mean I don't get all pushed out of shape when I go to the grocery store and they are all taken, I just find the next closest spot.
FWIW when there are spots close enough, and it doesn't impose a severe problem for me...that is if it doesn't take 30 minutes to walk 20 feet, I will park in other than disabled because I figure there might be someone who needs it more than I do; wheelchair, van with a lift for a wheelchair, someone with crutches or a cane (I don't need a cane right now, though it is in my car just in case). Actually this is the case probably 9/10 times because I try to patronize places that aren't crazy packed with people. Not for parking reasons more for I don't like people reasons. <shrug>
Those old codgers p!ss me off when there is no spot. I only help once a year for an event and they get nasty and will yell at our student volunteers. Uncool. I don't care how old and feeble you think you are, you do not get innappropriate with teen volunteers doing what we ask. The entitlement over that dumb decal is astounding, lol.
If you bring the form to a dr the office usually puts a "sign here" tabby and it gets in the file. I'm convinced most docs just sign without even seeing what it is! They rely on staff frighteningly too much.
My mom has one and I hate it. She has disabilities but honestly--walking is the very thing she needs!!
