    Stupid is......Stupid does

    Some people just plain stupid.

    I take my daughter to swim practice Mon & Fri's at the local county Fitness Center. Well, everytime there is a vehicle that is illegally parked in the handicapped space or spaces. So I now have the local police on my speed dial and they are usually out there within 15 minutes and issue a ticket to the violator. Well, last Friday I called on a Gold PT Cruiser, cop came and ticketed. Yesterday, the same car was there so I called again and they got another ticket! I hope and pray they are there AGAIN Friday, that will absolutely make my day! I hope the 2 tickets they've received were worth their convenience by inconveniencing someone who really needs the space.

    I've called on several other cars and have never seen them 'repark' in the accessible spots, so some people learn, some don't.

    You're my hero, Wolfie. How much is each ticket gonna cost 'em?

    Nice! I hardly ever see that around here. One thing that's been bothering me lately is all the shopping karts piled around the handicap spaces. I'm assuming they are from handicapped people that are in to much pain to take the kart to the nearby kart corrals. I sure hope they aren't left there by AB's! The hash marked area for a van ramp was totally full of karts at the store yesterday.

    Not sure, the officers put them in a pre-addressed envelope for them to mail in their check. I don't have the guts to go open it up and look!!

    When I called yesterday, I told them it was the same car I called on Friday, so HOPEFULLY the fine increases. Maybe next time they will tow the car, that would make my day!

    Yes, a tow job should get their attention. Not sure if it would raise their IQ, but just maybe.

    I guess the old saying "you can't fix stupid" is right then! Keep calling until your fingers get tired!

    This has me thinking. Is it fair for people who CAN walk to have handicap parking access? I notice more often than not most handicapped spaces are taken and I know most of those spaces aren't occupied by people confined to chairs. It seems like bullshit to me. And assholes still think abortion is wrong? What the hell would we do with even more fucking handicapped people?
