Today, Jane and I had a wonderful lunch at a local seafood restaurant; and after stuffing ourselves like a chef stuffs a flounder, we went to the local Home Depot to pick up a couple of spare bulbs for our outdoor lights. Mission accomplished on securing the bulbs and using the automated check-out machine….yeah, we are techno savvy!!!!!!!! As we left the store, we observed a healthy, strong, 30-something man and his equally healthy wife/girl friend/significant other/ho pull into a Handicap Only Parking spot. They were the only occupants of the slightly beat-up Chevy…..with Handicap Sticker proudly hanging from the rearview mirror! They jumped out of the car and sauntered into Home Depot. Neither was handicapped in any way…..except, maybe, mentally! BTW, there were plenty of open spaces within 20 feet of the Chevy. Sadly, you see this type of disregard and arrogance every day in parking lots across America. Since Jane was not packing her concealed hand gun (Ruger LCR), we, sheepishly, got in the car and made our getaway! But, the lack of respect for others (and one’s self) that permeates the spirit of America needs to change! It is time, folks!!!!
P.S. Where is a damn cop when need ’em?!?!?!?
