Unacceptable reasons for parking in a disabled parking space*:Posted: April 29, 2011
- Being too lazy to go and find a regular space.
- Because it’s easier to dispatch your seven crotchlings into Asda to do your weekly shop
- Because you’re cruising wit yo’ homies and you want to pull up to the kerb and get out of the car – you’re too ghetto for car parks.
- Because you’re elderly. If you’re elderly and immobile, get yourself a blue badge. If you’re just elderly, then sorry, you have to park in a regular space like the rest of us!
- Because you’ve brought your disabled family member with you to sit in the car while you go off and do your shopping. Not only is this pointless as the person the badge is intended for – the disabled person – isn’t leaving the car, that’s an incredibly crappy thing to do to your disabled family member.
- Because your mum/grandma/boyfriend has a blue badge, and it’s in your car so y’know…you’re displaying the badge and no-one’s going to KNOW they’re not with you and you’re using the badge. This is crap. I have a disabled badge in my car and, unless J is with me, I don’t use it. Even if ALL the disabled spaces are empty and the nearest regular space is the other side of the car park.
- Because you’re only going in really really quickly for a newspaper, and some coffee…and wine and maybe to pick up something for dinner…
- Because you’re sitting in the car. If you’re sitting in the car it doesn’t count, right?
Acceptable reasons to park in a disabled parking space:
- You have a blue badge, and it’s yours.
(if anyone can think of any more, please let me know!)
