This is something that bugs me a whole lot, even more than most other things, so you know it’s a lot. I’m sure I’ll post about it again and again. What am I talking about? Illegally parking in handicapped parking spaces “just for a minute.” I have encountered this more times than I can remember, and it happened again today.
What makes people think this is ok? If they need the space for 10 minutes, that’s more important than letting a person who really needs it park there? Today there was a passenger in the illegally-parked car, and he got a real earful. To be honest, I explained the situation well (though a bit heatedly) and made good points. He said his buddy was only parking for a few minutes. I pointed out that in those few minutes, someone who needed the spot wouldn’t be able to park there. I explained that this particular spot was for people who really needed it. I don’t know if he got it or not, but I walked away feeling pissed off. What makes people think that they can treat others this way? Are they so self absorbed that they don’t see what they’re doing? Just how rude, inconsiderate, and selfish are these people?
