Can we talk? I don't usually do this, I'm not a very outspoken person. I am just tired of having my rights abused. You see I am confined to a wheelchair due to an automobile accident. I don't drive, I have head injury and driving wouldn't be too smart. \r\nI live with my fiancée, so he takes me where I need to go. We have a handicapped tag, so parking shouldn't be a problem, right?? WRONG!!! Everyone and there brother has a handicapped tag or parking placard. \r\nWe circle the lot once or twice hoping that someone will come out and move. Like I said I am confined to a wheelchair, I need an access isle to be able to open the car door wide to get my wheelchair up close and still be able to hold on to the door while I transfer from the car to the chair. Usually we end up parking at the back of the lot so I can have the extra space. When we get in a store you don't see anyone in a wheelchair, using tanked oxygen or looking like they are having any problems walking.\r\nHandicapped people need those spots, they're not provided to use if you are too fat or lazy to walk. Fat people need the exercise anyway.\r\nSo the next time you see an empty handicapped spot don't pull in it thinking you deserve it just as much as anybody. STOP! We don't park there because we deserve it, we park there because we need it.
