On another forum, far far away, someone posted a thread pondering the number of disabled placard abusers and posted the usual nonsense about he couldn't "see a disability" and "They all seem to drive nice cars," and the ever popular, " Well a guy I work with lost his foot as a kid and he plays nine holes of golf, so why does he need one?" As someone who has and uses such a placard, let me just say, "Butt out!" I am grossly offended when some yahoo makes a remark like "You don't look disabled." (Imagined response:You don't look like a cretinous douchebag, we're even.") "What's wrong with you?" (I lack impulse control, so when some unprepossessing blatherskite spews bilge, I am prone to thrusting my cane violently, until it finds its mark.) Yes, I've actually heard that crap from complete strangers. Now if you can't figure out why that's rude, look at it this way: You and your kid are at a ballgame and a complete stranger says to you, " He doesn't really look like you. Is he your son? I'd like to see some proof." Yeah, you'd be pissed. If you actually think someone is abusing the privilege, tell the local parking authority or cops. The fine for abusing them is big and they do enforce the law, but don't assume just because you can't see a disability that one isn't there. And challenge the disabled parker at your own risk. I don't micturate in your Malto-Meal, stay the hell out of mine.
