I'm not sure if you're alone, but it's a pretty small room.

I thought that passing up spots reserved specifically for you was basically just a middle finger to everyone, a domination of a scarce resource out of ignorance or spite or some other petty motivation.
Many disabled people park in regular spaces when they are feeling good enough to walk the extra 20 yards and/or don't want to take a space which might be needed by someone worse off than they are.

RDH - even though you've explained your reasoning, I still don't understand it.

It would never even occur to me to get the slightest bit upset at a person not using a handicapped space.

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

have no idea why you would get mad. there are people in wheelchairs who have to use those spots so if the guy can park in a regular one then why not?

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

I was going to post that in the Shouldn't Piss You Off thread but had assumed I'd get shouted down with TSPYO!

I had thought about it in a binary way: if you need the placard, you should be parking there. If you don't - like if you're a 20-year old driving grandma's car - then you'd obviously just take it down and park anywhere. Situations like good/bad days just didn't really occur to me.

But hey, 2p2 is here as a great sounding board! Can't believe someone who doesn't check after they wipe like LFS would get all self-righteous about it, but like he said: we're not all perfect.

"how does your sense of sight help you when wiping" is the best start to a thread ever

I've got
"Is changing your name a dick move?"
"Changing your gender is a dick move"

as the best start to a thread ever.

Honorable mention to
"Is it wrong to screw your cousin?"
"Maeby"

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

RDH how come it never occured to you when you see a car with a HC placard parked in a normal spot that the only person in the car that particular time was not disabled? Seems super obvious that multiple people in a family might drive the same car, and only one of them needs the HC parking.

And even if the person driving the car is the disabled person, LOL at having any negative reaction whatsoever to seeing the placard in a regular non-HC spot. I don't understand what there is to get upset about.

Are you also fine with using a handicap bathroom stall when others are available? Because those two viewpoints are not compatible.

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

My dad had a pretty serious injury a few years ago and doesn't get around very well...he just turned 85 and has a placard. I've had occasion to be at my parents' and drove them to dinner in their car because I was driving a small car at them time and have dropped them at the front door of a restaurant and then drove to a regular spot to park. Didn't know I was potentially being judged.

I guess because I would 100% take down the card if I was driving the car. I honestly can't really imagine driving around with the HC placard hanging from the rearview if it was my grandma's car; it just seems so obvious to take it down in that situation I'm surprised it's (seemingly) common. oT, if you're driving and not parking in HC spots, why leave it up? Inertia?

In any case, glad I posted as this has cemented the change in my thinking. Thanks, OOT!

What about the placards that are embedded on the license plate?? Are you going to order an extra set of plates and swap those out every time you drive the car?

Lol if I recall correctly Im not the one who gets irrationally pissed off when someone parks there car in a regular spot if they have a HC placard
Also willing to bet that the HC card being on license plates never even crossed your mind

seems like the guy realizes he was irrationally wrong for several reasons. actually a welcome change to the typical oot flow where the poster doubles down and argues with everyone about it

OOT,

Tried a drink today, I think they called it orange coffee creamsicle or something. Orange juice, heavy cream, and espresso shaken with ice. Sounded potentially terrible, but was really great!
