Great.
Now every produce section is going to have a sneeze guard about waist high.

"One crucial number is missing: the number of people who shop while naked and drinking alcohol. I suspect there's some crossover."

I bought bicycles for my nieces that were the same price on Amazon as they were on the Target and Toys-R-Us websites.  I had them shipped to their house for free.  Why the hell would I go and deal with the insanity at a retail store?

/bought a TV a week before Thanksgiving for the same "Black Friday" price that other people were standing out in the cold at 4am to get.  Fark that noise.

You were naked, shopping for your nieces?

The only way to tell the quality of the toy you are buying is by the discolored rash it causes around your groin.

Welcome to Fark.


The number probably = 1:1 as a ratio, but that's just guesswork on my point, and considering I'm drunk at this point, my opinion probably counts for less than zero.

I wonder how many of those "non-handicapped people parking in handicapped spaces" TFA complained about are actually handicapped, they just don't look like it to the casual observer because they don't have a wheelchair or walker or something obvious like that.
 
2013-12-20 10:32:36 PM  
I guess I'm a prude...I must wear underpants at least when shopping on line...I have flappy balls
 
2013-12-20 10:33:49 PM  
Sometimes, I even like to poke the "confirm order" button with my dick to complete the sale.

Last time I did that in Wal-Mart, the police were involved.

This article does make one good point: people a use handicap parking. It used to be if you were handicapped you had an actual disability, not some made up disease like chronic fatigue syndrome or autism. But today you rarely see actual disabled people (missing an arm, retarded, etc) parking in these spots. It's always some chunky depressed cat lady rolling out of her 1998 Buick into a power chair.

I assume you mean during a peak holday shopping time because I don't really recall retail shopping being an "insane" experience. I generally find it a relaxing, enjoyable way to purchase goods.

2013-12-20 10:48:26 PM  
I'd just advise them not to shop naked while sitting in a slatted deck chair.

I used to work with someone who had terminal cancer, who was harassed by idiots for using the handicapped spots, just because she could still walk.

I'm betting the percentage of people who Fark while naked is even higher.

/may or may not be clothed
 
2013-12-20 11:10:27 PM  
If you drop an item, please let it go. Especially if you're in front of me. Please.

I'm still buying holiday bargains on Amazon.com. I also bought a Sony Blu ray with apps for 50% off. It's probably going to be a dog but I just want one box with Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and everything else. In other words, I'm tired of my Roku box switching from 4 balls to 2 balls.

I remember a story from a farker a few years back. He is handicapped.  He can walk about 200 feet before he starts limping, and it gets worse from there.  He told us how he almost always gets harassed for parking in the handicapped spot, because he doesn't look like he's handicapped the second he gets out of the car.

My mother-in-law is handicapped.  She was in a wheelchair for years, until a novel surgical technique was invented.  Now she has limited mobility, but it can still be really painful for her.  I wonder if she gets harassed for it.

Eh, if somebody has a hang tag or license plate, I figure they have it for a reason even if it's not obvious to me.

it's when people park there without a hanger or plate that grinds my gears.

I'll be the first to admit, there I times when I go to Walmart and I wish I could see some of the customers naked.  There's something about late Sunday night, and right after work during the week that apparently draws the hot, beared men to Walmart like moths to a flame.

Yeah, I hear ya on that.  I still try to assume that maybe they just forgot their tag at home; but that's mostly to keep my own anger down.

It seems that over the last few years, I've started shopping less and less at malls and big box stores in favor of online retailers. Part of it is not wanting to deal with huge crowds of people, but the main reason is that I'm inceasingly in the market for niche products or brands that brick and mortar retailers don't carry.

Well, seriously, all of those are disabilities; but none of them are the kind you need to tie up a handicapped parking space on. They should be reserved for people like a woman I know who is a multiple amputee (both arms below the elbow, both legs below the knee) or blind in both eyes, stuff like that.

On a more serious note, my dad has early Parkinson's and can walk quite well with only a cane; but after an hour or so he becomes quite unsteady on his feet and so needs a handicapped parking space, even though you'd never notice it when he first gets out of the car. So just on casual observation, it can be difficult to tell if someone "needs" a handicapped spot or not.

i just bought a TV that dropped $20 in the day it took to make up my mind. and it's roughly $100 less than comparable size ones in the stores. and the same brand as a smaller set i already own. and free shipping.

i've often wondered. and now i too have a handicap placard. and COPD and medical oxygen. but if i'm going into the quickie mart i leave the oxygen in the car. or if i'm going in a restaurant. i don't absolutely have to have it every minute of every day. so i'm sure there are times folks say bad things about me. oh well.

had a friend years ago who had heart trouble. wouldn't get or use a placard because to look at him you wouldn't know he was sick. pride goeth before a fall.
