Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

There is no greater evidence that Americans have become lazy and slothlike than our wanton abuse of handicapped parking placards. All you have to do is go to your nearest super market, park within viewing distance of the nearest handicapped parking spot, grab a bowl of popcorn and watch the comedy act.

All you have to do is go to your nearest super market, park within viewing distance of the nearest handicapped parking spot, grab a bowl of popcorn and watch the comedy act.

First of all, these special parking spots are RESERVED. They are reserved for people who have a difficult time getting from car to final destination. They were created for the person who is in a wheelchair, has a walker, has crutches, has a cane, is blind, or has some other serious health based parameter.

But in only an hour’s time watching a single reserved parking spot like this, these are the people that I have noted who used the parking spot:

  • Lazy office workers, obviously in a rush to grab a quick lunch and head back to the office. They park, jump out of their car, and scurry quickly into the supermarket at high speed.
  • Business man who does not want to get his tragically gray suit dirty. Parks and arrogantly saunters into the supermarket with no care on his mind.
  • Soccer man, trailing four screaming soccer brats. She is at her wits end and needs to get into the store and out of the store quickly before her children force her to snap!
  • Teenage girl with cell phone in hand. Too busy talking on her cell phone while driving to even understand that she should not be parking here. But not too busy to glance into the supermarkets window to make sure her hair is exactly right before entering.
  • And lastly, the constant stream of just plain FAT people. Guess what? If you parked a little farther away from the front door and that package of powdered donuts and potato chips, you may just actually lose some weight by forcing your body to take a few extra steps. Pathetic!

All of these people are poor excuses for humans. I do not understand their reasoning. If they are parked in that one or two parking spots that are reserved, the person who truly needs a little extra help getting to their destination must park further away and endure an unfair hardship. A hardship born from no good reason.

These abusers of privileges are selfish, self absorbed, arrogant, ignorant, and often have at one time had a parking placard and never relinquished it once they were healed from their face lift, butt lift, breast implant or other idiotic surgery. They just kept the placard and got used to its benefits, so abuse their ability every day.

Next time you see one of these abusers, shoot them THAT look. You know the one. The one we give out of control children who are acting up in public. The one look that says, “What is wrong with you? Didn’t you mother teach you morals? Did you fall down and hit your head prior to jumping into that gas guzzling Hummer? Are your jeans that tight that they squeezed the brains out of your rear end? Does the world revolve totally around you or are we all part of YOUR life? Perhaps we are all just a dream and you are making it all up and playing by your own rules?
