I, like most Americans have a drug problem, so I broke into your house and stole your belongings. Not my fault though, right?

Quit blaming others for your weight problem and learn some common courtesy. What if you were blocked from getting into your car on a regular basis? Try putting yourself in the note-givers shoes.

I smoke crack every day because I love it. I also love to eat garbage, because I'm a dumb idiot who's full of garbage and smells like garbage and trash.

You see yourself as a victim here?? You park your truck in a lame way everyday and wonder why you would get a note? You even went over the line but claim that was just a one time thing. Sure.

Your attitude and sense of entitlement is very annoying. The fact that you believe people would side with you shows a bit of delusion.

Vickiwicki,

Parking on the line to give your yak sized bulk more room to heft out of your piggy truck means you block someone else in.

So basically eff you. The person who wrote you the note should get you banned from the lot, ya pig.

blaming your obesity on being American is ubsurd. Your obese because of your horrible eating habits. So keep on judging people that dont leave their name on notes and i they will keep judging your Bessie-like body.

As I read all of the distasteful and hurtful comments shown above, I think about my plight in life as a larger woman and I too, agree with Vicki that you shouldn't judge a person until you have walked in their shoes. I park in a downtown garage everyday and must struggle with parking in those tiny spots. Although I don't have a large vehicle, once I had to be lowered through my sunroof because both vehicles on either side of me parked too close.

So basically Plumper you see how uncool it is for people like Vicki to park too close to people on either side.

Just because a buffet is "All You Can Eat" you really shouldn't take those words to heart.

Have some desceny, lose about 300lbs, start buying clothes that aren't made entirely of elastic and maybe your dimply, pastey, chaffed thighs wouldn't look like a wad of chewed up bubble gum in you oh so fashionable stretch pants.

If you took half as much energy in keeping food out of your man jam recepticle as you do in finding spelling errors in some hill billy redneck tv show name, you'd probably be in a better position in life.

So go cash in those food stamps at Walmart, buy yourself a pack of Pall Malls, and drown your sorrows in your 15 Hungry Man Meals we all know your ready to shovel in that never ending pit of a mouth.

PP and Vickey it is good to see that there are others out there like us. I dont feel that it is right that we are confined to small parking spots given our above average figures. Im not certain if you two use mobility aids or not but not only is it a strugle to find a parking spot but it is nearly Impossable to dispatch my scooter from the trunk forcing me to use the junky mart carts when available. I think we should call the mayor and voice our situation in hopes of possibly one day having large parking spots at local businesses and garages.

Sorry What?
How do you feel about paying for two spots because you should like an Airplane . People should not have to accommodate a big person it's not a condition in most cases it's an eating lack of exercise issue. So maybe you should bike somewhere instead of trying to make people compliant to your girthy life.

I think you mean-spirited people just aren't seeing how far ahead of the curve Vikki and Tabithat are...they are ready for a future where we as a species have to be carted around on levitating platforms b/c our bone structure simply can't support our mass. Anyone see Wall-E? Well, they're already there...

But in all seriousness, I do think we need to take it easy on these ladies, seeing as how they have a real disability. Being a female driver is no joke, it's a very serious affliction.
