    In the first place I get it, if someone is actually handicapped I can understand it, giving them a space close to the store, sure why not.

    But

    More and more I'm seeing people jump out of the car (placard on the dash) rush in to the store with no apparent health problems.

    Or

    I don't have a problem with chubby people or overly chubby people but it seems they should have to walk at least as far as the rest of us, for the sake of their health.

    And store scooters....:eusa_whistle:

    Tsk tsk, just because they can run doesn't mean they don't have a disability.

    Having set you straight on that score.....

    I love driving my mom's car. It has a disabled sticker. WOO FUCKING HOO! I particularly enjoyed it when packing tiny kids around, and navigating parking lots on foot was a death-defying feat with the little spastic tykes.

    Why does Lowe's have like 20 handicapped parking spots? I always found that odd.

    What bugs me is when someone with a handicapped sticker parks in a regular spot. I yell out, "you're parking in my spot!!!!!" That usually gets their attention.

    my only problem with people with handicapped stickers is that on average they always drive slower, it is like as soon as they get the sticker there car goes 10 mph slower. I hate slow ass drivers.
