Does it bother anyone else to see a (seemingly) able bodied person get out of their car that they parked in the handicap parking space at Walmart, (or anywhere for that matter)!
I contemplated getting a temporary placard before even before I had my hip replaced because it was so hard to walk. I decided not to since I was still working and I felt funny about it.
Well as I hobbled into stores before and after the surgery(I had to use a walker for 6 weeks). or restaurants or whatever, I would get royally pi$$ed off at the obviously nonhandicapped people with placards or plates.
It's really easy to get them and MD's don't really care, they fill out the form for anybody who asks.
What gets me the most though is the people like that nurse, who are friends and family and take advantage of the placard or plate when the handicapped person isn't even with them.
I have said something to people in a handicapped space that had no placard or plate. The others you just have to glare at because they have what they need to park there.
I'm really good at dirty looks though!!!
