At the gym I go to there are handicapped parking places right by the door. This is normal.
What isn't normal is that people actually park in them. I mean, it's the gym.
Now I do not mean to imply that handicapped people cannot or should not use the gym, nor do I mean any offense towards the handicapped, but this is strange. Let me tell you what I saw.
The other day after I put in a solid sweat-fest on the elliptical I saw a woman walking to her minivan, which was parked in a handicapped spot. She did not have a wheelchair; she did not have a cane. She walked herself down the sidewalk and to the driver's side of her van.
I had seen this woman on the treadmill ealier. Contradiction? I think so.
I had a confusing moment where I kind of stopped and stared at her. I hope she didn't notice.
If you know a way to acquire handicapped parking stickers without being handicapped, would you let me know?
