I’ve never noticed how many non-handicapped people park in spots reserved for those who really need them – until I was one of those that really needed them.
Let me take you back to Monday night. I noticed all of the handicapped spots in a parking lot were taken, so I was forced to park a couple of hundred yards away. The asphalt had patches of ice, but I managed to slide to the door on one leg.
When I walked out I noticed two ladies getting into a car parked in one of the handicapped spots. I’m no doctor, but they seemed like they could have done cartwheels across the lot.
“Did you really need to park there?” I asked the driver.
“Oh, I gots a sticker,” she replied.
“I’m not doubting that you have a sticker. I can see it hanging from your rear-view mirror. But you seem to be walking fine. Do you have a medical condition that requires you to park there?”
“Why you be gettin’ all up in my bidness?” she axed.
“Forget it. By the way, thanks for parking there. I had to walk two football fields on crutches.”
“Thank you for having crutches.”
Now, I admit I thought about using one of the crutches to start knocking out her headlights. But then it donned on me – nothing I could have said or done was going to change her ignorance. She’s probably a bad tipper, too.
Okay, let’s get to this year’s Christmas list for the SOB cast.
An Illinois victory over Mizzou in the Braggin’ Rights game. Oh wait, she got that last night. I guess Christmas came early. Drink, I said came early.
