Default walmart parking lot again

walking out of walmart, i pass a car with a middle-aged white trash woman sitting in the drivers seat. car is taking up TWO handicapped spots and shes not even handicapped. so i walked up to her door and kindly said "this is not a parking spot". she told me to mind my own business so i gave her the one-finger salute. walked to my car, pulled out and by the spot she had been sitting in - she was gone.
score one for me.

it bothers me when people think theyre better than other people. my reasoning:

she figures that shes just waiting for someone else, so theres no reason she should jhave to park a large distance away. everyone else has to park., but theres no reason she should have to, right? after all, no laws apply to her because shes better than everyone else. she could have parked in the fire lane (which says "NO PARKING" and i would have still informed her that its not a parking spot), but instead she took up two handicapped spots. so shes better than handicapped people

I doubt that she has the ability to think that far in her head...
I don't think theres any reason to get worked up about it though. Theres an endless list of stuff like that that happens everyday. I doubt she moved because of you either.
She was just being a cnt. No big deal. At least she wasn't speeding through the parking lot.

Well, you did say "Middle-aged" and "white trash" all in the same sentence. That alone qualifies for handicap status in non-redneck states.

I used to work at a parking lot in downtown Columbus, a small one with two handicapped spots. Our policy when the lot is full was to take keys and valet park in the aisle.

We had one monthly tag guy who had a handicap tag and always parked right next to the booth at about 9:00. One day I had two handicap plate cars parked in those two spots, so this ********, who had just a slight limp from arthritis, parked between the two cars in a no parking spot while I was talking to the attendant of the garage behind the lot.

Unfortunately, the car to his left was a wheelchair van that loaded on his side.
When he came back, his car was gone. I didn't bother calling my boss to have it towed to our contracted towing company. I flagged a cop and asked him to issue a citation and have the car impounded.
I think the guy may have been a tad upset with me. Tough sh*t. :P

EDIT: Oh, yeah, we also revoked his monthly tag with no refund for violating terms of use.

thats the point. she just assumed it without even thinking about it. its her underlying assumption that she didnt even think about. just like we assume the earth is round. and yeah, i doubt that i made a difference to her, but im doing my part. if everyone did that every time they saw it, it wouldnt happen anymore. the problem is that people are too used to it or too yellow to say something about it. i feel like its my duty to say or do something about it. if everyone made the darters in high traffic aware that what they were doing was NOT acceptable (for instance, by blocking them in and not letting them do it, or making them almost get in accidents [emphasis on almost]) they wouldnt do it. because when they did it, everyone would stop them. that would save lives. so i do my part, but if no one else does, thats not my fault. but it doesnt mean i shouldnt do it.
