mryoop789, I figured you were kidding. So am I, the only punches I throw are at inanimate objects.

What kind of horrible person goes around smacking people, handicapped or not?

Well, the last guy was wearing a mullet and driving a rusted out charger. He pulled into the space meant for disabled drivers just ahead of me. I rolled down the window and told him to get the fark out of there. He told me to get out of the car and swear at him. So I parked right behind him (hey, it was a rental car, whadoIcare?), pulled my wheelchair out from behind the drivers seat, and said, "okay, don't get out of the parking spot."

I then called the malls parking enforcement agency (I have their number) and told them about the illegally parked vehicle. The moran wanted to take a swipe at me when he realized what I was doing. So I stayed there, blocking him in until the tow truck got there.

0ok

...and what pissed me off is they didn't tow him because I was blocking him in, they told me to move my car so he could go park elsewhere...the asshat should have at least been ticketed.

I have to admit, I always use the handicapped stall in the bathroom at work.

More room to stretch out and read the paper


I used to do that too, though one time I was right in the middle of dropping the kids off when under the stall I see a wheel chair. It was quite embarassing, especially after he kicked my ass. I have never used a handicap toilet after since.

My car is worth about $24,000. So that would be like fining me $22. I'm sure Iverson learned his lesson and will never, ever do it again!

Personally I think that a) there are sometimes far too many handicapped spots, and b) the appropriate punishment is to break the offenders leg and give him a legal handicap tag.

Someone else called me a jerk, so I wanted to be sure it was clear that I was joking. And yeah, that ass should have been ticketed? What's with your mysteriously disappearing comment above? Made me look insane.

Not surprising. If he could read, he would have been able to do something better with his life than play basketball.
 
2004-06-03 01:48:31 PM  
lol@ Va Tech football players with handicapped tags. Marcus Vick should have one too, for his mental handicap.

At any rate, Iverson is a punk biatch who does nothing but perpetuate the stereotype.

When I was in college I remember some asswipe parked in the handicap space at a drug store. A real handicapped guy parked right behind him, got into his wheelchair, called the police, and followed the dick around until the cops arrived.
 
2004-06-03 01:51:16 PM  
"Mentally Handicap Parking" is what he thought the sign said, In which case he would be legal.
 
2004-06-03 01:54:14 PM  
What ticks me off , now that I'm not having babies anymore, are the parking spaces for expectant or new mothers. If I had to drag my fat pregnant a$$ from the far end of the parking lot cause I respected the handicapped spots, then everybody should. They should have towed his car.

At least he's not kicking his naked wife out of the house in the middle of the night and then hunting her down with guns and friends anymore.

Although, I have to admit that it was kinda funny seeing a diagram of his gay cousin's underwear in the Daily News.

It's not like het met a girl and kobe'd her.

It's also refreshing to see a basketball player get in trouble for something other than weapons, drugs and sexual assault. We should applaud A.I.

My dad used to write tickets in Santa Fe new mexico. He would have loved to write a ticket. Even at a mall, where the parking lot is private property, they can get a ticket. Here its only a 100 dollar fine, should be closer to 500. Keep the assholes out of those spots.
I had a pass that was only for work, because parking was limited, and I just had my appendix out. Anywhere else my wife would drop me at the door and then park. Come on folks, after your super size meal, your fat ass needs the walk.

"He had his posse with him," the officer said.

Hmm, is that the official departmental term? Nothing enhances police credibility like mixing in slang that the "kids" are using.
 
2004-06-03 02:02:16 PM  
Dude - I thought that's what the 'handicapped' spaces were for because, there are two types of people that I've seen use those spaces - dusgusting fatties and... well... never mind... That would be a "generalization"... and we know how much farkers hate generalizations - regardless of how true they are.

I got no problem with this. In fact I expect this behavior and disdain for the rules from.... people like Iverson. Remember handicapped spaces were only created to keep... "people like Iverson" from parking too close - so parking there is like being the Rosa Parks of parking spaces.
 
2004-06-03 02:02:50 PM  
i think its messed up. I had an experience where some guy parked in the only handicapped parking spot and he wasent handicapped. he just wanted to buy some take out. but then where the hell am i suppose to park? so I have to drop my grandma at the front. I dont know about you guys, but give some frickin' respect.

Iverson's Rolls ticketed at airport

Haha, and here I was thinking "rolls" was some crazy new hip-hop speak for car... see, cause the wheels, they roll on the ground... nevermind.


Hey, at least "Rolls" makes more sense than "Whip."

I still feel the best method for dealing with buttfarks who park in handicap spaces without the permit can be found in the film "Me, Myself & Irene". In fact, that should be the minimum response.

I thought that the "kids" used the terms "entourage" or "crew, "or "retinue" if they are highfalutin. As opposed to "haters."

But I ain't up on the current slang. Is that how you say it? "Ain't up"?

I posted this story the last time Fark had a 'handicapped parking' story.

I meet my friend at a mall and he's going to drive me home. He's a quad and uses a van with a lift in the side. So we go out and some moran is parked right beside the van, despite the sign saying do not block ramp, do not park within six feet. This guy decided to park in two disabled parking spots.

Out comes my friends cell phone, calling for a tow. While we wait, he says, I wonder if the ramp has space to come down? So he puts his key on the rear tail light and the door slides open and the ramp falls out "BANG" on the top of the car. "Nope" he says. I just laugh. Every couple of minutes he decides to try again. BANG BANG BASH! Finally, after twenty minutes, the tow truck comes, drags the car away. We get into the van, and as I finish strapping my chair in, my buddy sees a guy looking puzzled and pissed.

"Did you have my car towed?" he asks?

"Yep!" sez my vengeful friend.

"But I was only in the store for five minutes!"

Ya right. My friend is lucky the guy didn't take note of his license plate, cuz I'm sure he was pissed after seeing the dents and scratches in his car's roof.

0ok

...who never tires of telling this story that gives him a warm fuzzy feeling right where I'm not supposed to have any sensations.

what a jackass.

and for those who think only disabled people get angry about non-disabled people parking in handicapped spaces, think again. i am someone with working legs, and i will not hesitate to boot your ass out of the spot if you don't need it. and if you're a real jerk about it, i'll leave a little something on your car to let everyone know you've done. maybe with a key, maybe with a permanent marker.

and there are quite a few of us out there, so don't assume you're safe if you don't see anyone in a wheelchair.

The NBA is one farked up sport. The tickets to the games are outrageously expensive, so the poor ethnic types who purchase 300$ sneakers are so farking broke they can't make it to the games.

And the players primary language is ebonics, no fuking wonder I.A. I - Asshole, can't read the sign. Send the dick to prison.
 
2004-06-03 02:43:40 PM  
Only a $300 fine? In Ontario the fine was recently increased to $5000 Canadian (what? maybe $3000 US or so).

It pisses me off to no end when out with the wife's grandmother (88 years old, with a walker and handicapped parking sign) and there is some fat fark sitting smoking cigarettes in his big SUV in a handicapped spot. One coont even had the nerve to tell my wife (I wasn't there that night) to fark off when he asked him to move to let her and grandmother park.

Ookdalibrarian- awesome story! serves the chump right.
 
2004-06-03 02:45:42 PM  
My uncle's handicapped - and were he there, he'd prolly hobble over to AI, smack the shiat out of em with his little baby arm, and then go park in the back.

/'felt like somebody hit me in the back of the head with a turkey leg or something'
 
2004-06-03 02:49:55 PM  
Were I in charge, the penalty would be broken kneecaps.

Then he's able to park there legitimately.

Hey, Iverson! Those blue parking stalls are for people with real problems, not you--you overpaid scumbag.

Ook, brilliant story. I wish I had disabled friends so I could bear witness to things like that. I'm all in favour of vigilante justice when the police don't think an offence is "important." Personally, I want to print out huge bumper stickers that say, "I PARK ILLEGALLY IN HANDICAPPED SPACES" to stick on people's cars who do that.

Back when I lived in the dorms, a friend of mine and I were going to get breakfast one Sunday morning when we saw not one but TWO cars parked illegally in handicapped spaces. They were still there when we got back from breakfast, so we called parking services and watched with great satisfaction as both cars were towed.

piece of shiat. him and latrell sprewell give the game a bad name.
 
2004-06-03 03:01:52 PM  
A close relative of mine has a handicap that isn't always immediately apparent to people, and it isn't physically apparent that she may need to use blue spaces, and we often get dirty looks, even though we've got the handicapped tag displayed.

Anyway, in some places, like in the Triangle NC area, there are way too many handicapped spots generally-- except at hospitals and doctors offices, strangely. Meanwhile where I grew up, on Scranton PA, the population is mostly elderly and there are not anywhere near enough handicapped spots.

My point? Sorry, I didn't know one was required to have a point.

I understand the need for handicapped spaces, and people who use them unnecessarily are asshats, but still there's way too many frickin handicapped spaces. The first 3 spaces in each row of parking are handicapped, I see one handicapped car maybe once a month. What a waste.
 
2004-06-03 03:31:09 PM

I once saw a car w/o handicapped tags in a handicapped spot and there just happened to by a cop standing nearby. So I walked up to the cop and asked him to write a ticket. He said that he couldn't because the spot was only marked on the pavement, there was no upright sign. Apparently he could claim not to have seen the giant symbol painted on the extra-large space.

When I see this, I like to leave a note on the car ("I guess YOUR handicap is mental"). One time I got snagged by the owner.
her: Is there a problem?
me: Yes, there is. You're parked in a handicapped spot and you don't have handicapped tags or a placard.
her: hmfffff, pause. I have one! --sputter-- I just,just --pause, sputter sputter pause-- I, um --pause--left it at home.
me: well, I guess you don't need it very badly then.
