    Why am I not surprised?

    You are insulting handicapped people. I think this lot is purposefully stupid and have the PHD’s to prove it.

    John Pike….
    there are many kinds of disabilities….

    A wall plastered with PhD’s … which BTW has a small “h” …
    doesn’t “prove” the Penny’s are not “disabled” in some way…

    It may not be physical; it may not qualify them for a blue placard,
    or give them an actual need to ride in a cart…

    But they definitely have a social handicap or two….
    ignorance is one of them.

    Facetiously calling their ignorance disabling does nothing to diminish the physical handicaps of others….

    Not understanding when people are joking, and bawling them out on forums…
    you know…
    that’s kind of a social handicap too.

    which BTW has a small “h”
    I thought Post Hole Diggers would be PHDs, you know, with a capital “H”.
    But I get your point.

    Thanks X.

    And you’re right…
    maybe he means Peoria Historical Dioramas,
    or Plaid Honey Dispensers,
    or he raises Police Hound Dogs (who can sniff out disabilities)….

    Or he has invented Personal History Detectors.

    I shouldn’t jump to the conclusion that he’s educated.

    An Imperial entitlement! Perhaps the Pennys would want home delivery—and putting away—as well. Natch!
    Not to join the fray re: disabilities but… There are disabilities and then there are disabilities. There are some people who take advantage of a societal mitzvah like electric carts like the Pennys do, and I call that a (societal) disability. I never know what to do when I see this taking place because some "disabilities are not immediately obvious. My better angel tells me to pray for them but my lesser one wants to resurrect some old Johnny Carson curses about the fleas of a thousand camels.

    In my part of town I see people (generally well-endowed and fit “trophies”) pull into a handicapped parking spot so they can get a place close up because they only need a few things. After all, they don’t want to be late for their tennis date at the club. Heaven forbid. Or folks that have a hang tag for Mom but Mom isn’t with them. Grumble grumble grumble.
    And then there’s Edna (Ralph is long dead) driving a 1992 Town Car who simply stops wherever she is and calls it parking. You can hear strains of “Pomp and Circumstance #3” as she drives by. She got that way when they were posted overseas and got really rich. She believes that she is better than the common sort even though Ralph started out as an oilfield roustabout in Midland and she was the girl with the big TaTas in the office.

    Please don’t point out the location of the “find it” in case some of us are still looking for it. Thanks.

    Dear Friends, I apologize for my rant about people who misuse the facilities, etc set aside for those with disabilities. I was in a bad mood and sometimes I take it out on old wimmen; not physically or verbally (to them) but I do get cranky. None of you deserve that. I’m sorry.

    I appreciated (truly!) the discussion on disability. My multiple sclerosis “earned” me a parking placard but it’s also what keeps me from kicking people in the sitter when they use those spaces because they’ll “just be a minute”!

    You simply verbalized what most of us here see daily and like you, periodically you gotta “vent”.
    The Pennys are, unfortunately, a growing segment of the general population with no couth and very little true citizenship. In this milieu it’s funny. In reality it’s pathetic.
    Looks like the industrial fan in Burl’s “palace” is going to get a workout with the beans and prunes.

    Ted may as well go out to the parking lot with them, they will leave the cart wherever they get off, and hopefully it is not behind their car. By the way, it is obvious they are at a the ‘bag your own’ lane to save another nickle as there is no bagger or bags at the check out. They are pushing the limits as far s possible.

    I think I know the same people you do. You did leave out the folks that park in the fire lane in front of the store.

    What about the ones that take the carts home and then leave them on the parkway, or in the alley, or on the street……. ! ? ! ?
