I have a small confession to make. People who can walk stealing a parking place from someone like me doesn’t bother me that much. Think about it, what’s the worst that could happen if I have to roll a mile and the half in Walmart parking lot? At worst I might strain a joystick finger. I’ve watched people walk all my life, I have to be honest, that looks like it hurts. I have very limited experience in walking, but honestly, watching people walk, I am genuinely surprised that they don’t keel over from the effort more often. I think I probably would,
With that in mind, I think this handicap parking thing might be backwards. I think you people stealing my spots, might actually deserve them because you have to walk. However, we must also keep in mind that there are older people who are still walking who genuinely needs those spots. The next time you steal a parking place, Think twice. Someone in a motorized chair like me may not need the spot, but you might be taking it from a 90-year-old grandmother, who definitely doesn’t need to walk that far. When an older person like that falls, not only is it really hard to get up, but It can be deadly. Just a little food for thought
