The other day, NS and I went to Cafe du Monde for some beignets.
We parked in the handicap parking spot.
When we pulled up, there was a lady getting out of her car right next to us.
When she got out of her car, she didn’t walk to the front of her car towards Cafe du Monde,
she walked to the rear and looked over at mine to see if I had a handicap license plate.
YEAH, I HAVE A HANDICAP PLATE WITH YOUR NOSEY BUTT!
Boy, people sure don’t like it when you pull up in one of those handicap spots unless, you’re getting out the car with a wooden leg and a kick stand!
Before I received the plate, I used to have one of the hang tags that hang from the rear view mirror.
I’d hang it up after I moved into the parking space because, if you just leave it hanging, the heat will crack it.
You would not believe how many people would see us pulling in a parking spot and yell, “YOU AIN’T HANDICAPPED!” without so much as seeing if I had legs.
Call it my crazy NOLA sense of humor but, I think that shit is so funny every time it happens.
Well, there was this one time…..
I don’t think it’s their loyalty toward the handicapped that makes them go into a tangent.
I think they’re pissed off because they can’t park there.
by the door.
In fact, I know it.
When NS had his surgery, he had a soft cast and was walking with crutches.
Even then, when we got out of the car
…the comments were still being made.
How the hell you see a man with a soft cast on, walking with crutches
and ya still yelling about someone being not handicapped?
This one woman was going in on him.
NS has the patience of Job, he just let her rant.
I got tired of her though and went in for the kill and shut her down.
I mean damn! The man has a cast AND crutches!
It’s worse around Christmas time when everyone’s out shopping, looking for parking spaces…goodness!
I know some people park in the handicap spot and they don’t have a tag or anything but,
I have THEE handicap license plate on my car…not the hang tag.
and I’m still getting harassed by folks.
Although not as much since I have the plate.
I guess it’s more legal to them somehow…lol
Hating on the handicapped…who knew?
