Are the handicapped people making handicapped faces?

hstein3: I've taken to digging out the handicapped spot at my apartment complex. I figure my neighbor who parks there won't be getting out to do it herself, so someone should.

It's a nice sentiment, except after I did that two days in a row, the douche bag who parked next to her took all the heavy snow from his spot and dumped it behind her car. It froze the next night, so now she has this dense pile of ice/snow chunks piled up to her bumper. Unless she gets the maintenance staff to take some real tools to it, she's waiting for it to melt; my shovel wasn't doing the job.

I don't get people sometimes.


Go get a bottle of "Magic Shell" dessert topping from your ice cream type aisle at the store. Apply this to the jerkoffs windshield when it is nice and cold out tonight.

Watch the hilarity from your window the following morning.

Sure pick on the South.  At least we don't try to claim parking spots with lawn chairs.

It's kind of funny... there are six or eight handicapped spaces at my gym, and usually one or two are taken.  The spaces generally have marked off lanes for easier egress on either side, and I think that's the main advantage to them, rather than proximity to the door.  There are a couple of regulars who tool around the gym in wheelchairs and I'm sure those spaces are helpful to them.

On the other hand, there are always a few regular folks cruising the lot looking for the closest possible parking spot.  At the gym.  Where they've presumably come to exercise.

Maybe the snow has a right to be in the handicapped space. It fell and cannot walk or run. When it is able to run it will no longer need or occupy the handicapped space.

Here in FL we call handicapped spaces "yankee lanes" because 90% of them are filled with cars with plates from Ohio, NY, and Pennsylvania.

capt.hollister: Cotham believes the snow piles weren't purposefully pushed into handicapped spots, but she was still surprised that the incident wasn't isolated but instead widespread.

So, they just grew there ?


Ever hear of a Cleveland Steamer?

Southerners apparently need someone to take care of them, constantly.

Not impressed.

I would think "snow bird perch" would be more appropriate.

While we in the South may have a difficult time dealing with things like snow, I do find it amusing how rabidly people who actually deal with snow regularly are dumping on the South about its issues.  But hey, anything to help ease that seasonal depression right guys? Glad we can help.  Now just let me look at my 5 day forecast. Ah yes, 65, 74, 74, 79, 78, 74.

It all balances out, because as they were covering the handicapped spots, they were saying "Bless their hearts."

OK, the south votes Republican, almost universally.  Please tell me how quickly the GOP has been "Learning from it's mistakes"....This isn't news....The GOP-south simply doesn't do that 'learning thing'.

Call me insensitive, but if the handicapped are truly equal to everyone else, they can park like everyone else without special spots up front.

Linux Granny: kitsuneymg: I seem to remember last time it happened someone posted a dozen or so pictures of handicap spots with snow piles In them from up north.

Plenty of stuff to make fun of down here and you pick a non issue? Wow.

You try coping with a wheelchair for a while, and then tell me it's a non issue when you can't safely park and exit the vehicle.

Wanker.

In the German neighborhoods in Chicago, they put towels in the lawn chairs.

Why don't they just park in the fire lane?

Lucky LaRue: The problem with this story is that it was written yesterday.  At the time of its publication (this morning), all the snow in Charlotte has melted.


Snowpiles like that don't melt in one day.
