I need to vent in your column if it’s OK with you. I am disabled and need a scooter to get around. I have been disabled most of my life and am used to being so. What I want to say is this, “People, Don’t park in the handicapped section unless you are handicapped.”
The other day I was at the grocery store, and there were no handicapped parking spaces available. Now, that is OK if all of the handicapped spaces are filled with folks that need the space.
Usually, however, many times these spaces are taken by lazy ass people who don’t give a damn except for themselves, you know who you are.
Please give people who need to be closer to the store a chance. Believe me, if I could walk, I would be glad to walk farther away if I could.
Appreciate the fact that you are well bodied and able to walk. I would give my wisdom tooth to be able to be fully mobile.
Also, when I am in a crowd, please give me the courtesy not to stand in the middle of an aisle when someone needs to get through. If you want to carry on a conversation, move to the side so that others can pass.
Please be courteous and think of others, and not just of yourselves. If you do this, we will all feel a lot better about it. Thank you.
Dear Disabled Dorothy:
That you for writing in, this has always been a pet peeve of mine too. I appreciate your candor.
