    In (a parking) space, no one everyone can hear you scream… – More than one “breakdown” going on, here… aah, the slow “Engine Of Progress”… – Somebody is probably writing down Brad and TJ’s vehicle number…. In order to nominate them as "Laureates for ‘Poetic Justice’ "…as soon as they can find a pen in the midst of their own junky car…. – Caution: Object lessons closer than they appear….

    Hmmm… so she is wearing a gym outfit and yet can’t be bothered to walk from a further space? I love the smell of irony in the morning…. – Brad and TJ are trying to make a good point- if the lady bothers to “pick up” on it… but all the same, in this society, somebody could just as soon try to “make them out” to be the “bad guys” in this scenario…

    Obviously These two twits have nothing better to do than try to make a point to someone they know nothing about. They will block the whole traffic lane just to irk an unthinking person or teach them (her) a lesson… Let it go boys. She might have just returned from her Cardio- Rehab session and stopped in for her prescription. Did they even check to see IF she had a handicap sticker? Sometimes they are laying on the dash board and not readily available to see.-———————————————————————————-—————————————————————————————————————Just drive by.

    I don’t see a handicap card, myself.

    I had one briefly, when I had surgery on my foot and had to use a walker. It didn’t really help, because most of the spots were already taken. I was glad that I didn’t have to use the walker for long; now use a cane due to bad arthritis. Walking hurts, but at least I can still do it…

    Not to mention, one of many “possible” outcomes:

    If this became a “ticket issue” and they were to get before a judge (and depending on who it would be), t’wont look too good on them in looking like they were trying to carry out “their own brand of justice”, especially as it would have taken more time and expense ( +pain) than it would have to just call the cops, or let it just go (plus, that’s perhaps money that a tow company wouldn’t be able to get, unless the company towed them, if the lady had called in Brad and TJ’s vehicle)…

    My son goes to a health centre, you could call it a gym, where we bump into people in wheelchairs all the time. I’m sure there are other, less obvious disabled people, too. (OK, this is mostly a rehabilitation type of gym.)

    I still have the disabled parking space card for my MIL who died yesterday a year ago. I ever used it at her hospital, though. But I did wonder at the time whether someone thought the same when they saw me parking in that space and running to or fro (in one direction I necessarily ran alone each time).

    The blonde in the gym suit does not have a handicapped sticker, tag, hanging card, or license plate. We are supposed to be able to recognize that she is breaking the law and potentially depriving a needy person of that special parking space.Thus, there are at least two major flaws with TJ’s silly solution. First, the boys are blocking the handicapped space even longer than the blonde would have. Second, for all they know, she just might be angry enough to ram her big SUV into their car, or commit some other act of violence. TJ and Brad are wrong to play vigilante.

    Obviously, Greg Evans has never heard of invisible disabilities. Yes, disabled people do exercise—it’s the only thing keeping me out of a wheelchair. Yes, we can appear to walk normally for a few steps. No, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a horrible time walking farther than that.

    Do able-bodied people abuse handicapped spaces? Yes. Can you tell by looking who needs them and who doesn’t? Not always.

    Well…this one hits close to home for me. I use a handicap placard and it is not one bit funny when I see someone using a spot for their arrogant, selfish use when they are obviously not handicapped. One thing to mention however, is that heart problems do not show the obvious physical signs of being handicapped, but wearing gym clothes should be an dead giveaway! (I have a visible physical issue FYI) I use a cane, have bypassed a spot on occasion but by the time I reach my destination, I am sometimes wiped out for a few minutes! NOT fun!!

    I doubt she will be blocked for an hour, tying the spot up too long and I hope it teaches this twit a lesson in manners, which she appears to be lacking!

    I have this tiny notecard I carry (some of) in my wallet. It’s called a “Rude and Obnoxious” award and shows Mickey Mouse giving the bird. It says..“You have received this award today because you obviously are handicapped in the head only.” I put it under wiper blades of anyone I see parking like an idiot…for more reasons that just using a handicapped spot. Once I came back to my car and could not get IN because someone had whipped in, in their gigantic tank of a truck way too close to me. Somehow I managed to squeeze in. You can bet he/she got one of them!!

    So, just be kind (and thoughtful) out there.Now….I feel better!!! :-)

    How is it possible people reverse right and wrong all the time? We are forever looking for excuses.I am a REAL handicapped, i NEED to use handicapped spaces and for years I have been unable to simply wave my kids goodby into school (just being there at the door with all the other parents) because some idiot just parked in the allocated space in front of the Elementary school.

    The excuse was always that they took the place for just 5 minutes…But i NEEDED the space THEN. I have in reality blocked them in just to give Police the time to get there and fine them.

    I also have been threatened with physical violence just because I requested someone to clear the space…

    And, BTW, when my ife drives me somewhere, if I am not in the car on the way back, she NEVER takes advantage of the Permit.

    So, sorry, NO WAY, NO EXCUSE if you want to park there you FIRST SWAP YOUR LEGS WITH MINES. I would gladly get rid of the Permit to be able, just once in my lifetime, to play football or Basket or anything with my kids.

    I think the point Brad was making about her being in a gym outfit was that she is obviously fit enough to go workout…she doesn’t need to be parking in a handicapp spot! And I doubt the woman would call the police on the 2 of them for blocking her in because , oh what? she’s not supposed to be parking there!

    Ah, but there’s a difference between the urgent need for a toilet and being too damn lazy and entitled to walk an additional 50 feet from a non-handicapped space.

    My job has me visiting 10-12 of the “big box” electronic or office supply stores each week. At least once a day, I’ll see one or more carts left in the parking space next to the cart return space. They were literally two steps from putting the cart where it’s supposed to go, but they couldn’t be bothered.

    What is wrong with you people? Can you tell by looking that a person has COPD? Can you tell by looking at her that a woman has congestive heart failure? Both of these conditions warrant a handicapped placard or license plate. And there are a LOT more medical conditions just like them. Judging whether or not someone is using a handicapped spot fraudulently is not something you can do by looking at their clothes or ability to walk into a store. Shame on all of you!

    Oh let’s see, there are several hundred thousand young women that have served in the Armed Forces over the years, and a couple thousand have been disabled in the line of duty.

    There are millions of young women that have various diseases and illnesses that limit their mobility and ability. There are also many injuries that hamper mobility and you can have a “handicap” placard with an expiration date on it.

    I am a veteran, and I have had surgeries on my knees, and I have had broken bones in my foot and ankle. I have had a Handicap placard before.

    And finally, yes, some “fitness facilities” have special classes and session for those in rehab therapy.

    Yep just like Brad Degroot’s mistaking a Girl Scout membership pin for some “award” once again a “jump” in logical thinking means an interesting story arc.

    I stood by the car playing songs on my cane flute attracting all manner of attention, smiles & conversation. By the time the car’s owner came back, there was quite a crowd of folks around the car, full of smiles over the fun I was having.

    When I was much younger I had an accident and came within a tiny fraction of an inch of needing those spaces for life. Before the accident I would never have used one of those spaces for anything but also didn’t give them much thought otherwise. Since the accident I am a bit militant about folks using those spaces that have no right there.

    I’m a firm believer that anyone using a handicap spot that doesn’t have a need should have their leg broken and be forced to park as far away as possible until it heals. Anyone abusing a handicapped placard that belongs to someone else should have both legs broken and be forced to park as far away as possible.

    Maybe then they would understand why those spots are so important to the folks that actually need them. Of course, anyone dim enough to think they are entitled to those spots when they aren’t, probably wouldn’t get the point. But the punishment would at least fit the crime.

She may have a seizure disorder or something else that makes walking iffy. (Perhaps she was at the gym for therapy.)*3) I doubt the goofuses are going to actually be there an hour tying up the space. More like the 5 minutes she would have needed to walk the three car spaces.*Good one, Team Evans!

    comedy ha ha ha…………………….. real life potentially dangerous specially if BF of a woman doing this happens to be an NFL linebacker that knows martial arts or if she has gun inside her car ………………let’s see, is this real life? or is this a comic strip that is a comedy? than stop taking it as real life of 2 guys named Brad and TJ, and take it as simply a comedy about how thoughtless some people are about using the handicapped park sections and the things we wish we could do about it and laugh about the main characters doing just that

    EVEN if she was mentally handicapped or was ancient and had difficulty walking or she was in crutches………………………….. if the person’s car HAS NO permit to use the handicapped section, the person CAN"T use it same thing with persons using the “pregnancy or having a newborn baby parking sections” does not matter if the person is obviously 7 months pregnant or if she has a 2 months old baby in her arms, no permit, no allowed to use them AND AGAIN, we should see this as a comedy, not as “is this is smart in real life?”

    I had two employees. One had a heart condition that eventually killed her. The other had severe asthma that eventually killed her. Neither had a limp. I made both get a handicap placard to lessen their walks to the office. No dress code was required. People can be idiots making stupid assumptions.

( despite contrary postings , there is NO evidence the lady in question is LEGALLY permitted to park there). . . . .-——————————-Most basic legal observations:Yes, there was a tort involved here. Clearly shown in the actions of TJ and Brad!,As for the “NO evidence” issue, we must recall that the lack of evidence is material . And persons are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty

    Back in the day, there were “grey market” cars – Mercedes, Bimmers, Porsches, etc. that were purchased overseas at stupid low prices due to the strong dollar and then shipped over here. It was common, especially during Christmas season, to find such cars taking up two parking spaces at shopping centers. Luckily, I had a slightly beat Triumph Spitfire that was really good at getting into tight parking spaces and I’d do just that – squeeze ever so carefully into what was left of one of the two parking places used by such dweebs and let them figure out how to get out of their parking space without scratching their own auto.

    A friend of mine was a Korean War vet and he use to tell us about a friend of his, a female army nurse who was disabled but still worked at the VA. If she was out and saw someone without a tag parked in a disabled parking spot she’d park behind them and time how long it took those people to get back to their vehicle. If it turned out that they had a permit but forgot to put it up she’d let them out, no problem. If they didn’t have a permit she’d stay parked where she was for as long as she’d been waiting. If the person called the police she’d accept the ticket for double parking, but they’d get a ticket for parking in a disabled spot (much more money than the one she got for double parking). At the end of the month she’d walk into the VA hospital and tell everyone how many people she’d caught and all the vets would take up a collection for her tickets. She never had to pay for a single ticket out of her own pocket.

    I had a co-worker who would expect to be let onto the freeway by whomever was passing the on ramp. If they didn’t let him on, he’d speed up and pass them then cut them off and give ‘em a ’brake check’. all three of his vehicles had rear-end damage… I told him he was a ‘rectal pore’ and he should go back and learn how to drive… he said it was to teach people to be polite and LET him on the high way. I said the right of way belongs to the driver in the lane he wants in and he must speed up or slow down as required before he changes lanes. That is the law and rule of the road and he should work with it…

    This promotes the ignorant thinking that a disability is only something you can see. The guys didn’t even bother to check if she had a placard on her front window, they just assumed they know better than her. Of course there are people that park in spots they arent’ supposed to, and yes those people are jerks, but Brad and TJ are just as big of jerks for this behavior.

    Scene: back to school night. I was in a motorized wheelchair at the time. Got back to the car afterwards and couldn’t set up the ramp to load the thing: another parent had parked in the crosshatch markings. At the end of the event we got to stand there (we had no other choice) and watch that woman walk a suddenly-long walk back to her car, highly embarrassed. As well she should have been. ….That said, most of the time I don’t have to use the chair now. But exposure to UV light triggers my autoimmune illness—we’re talking going blind for two weeks after five minutes in the June sun, organ damage. Not something that anyone else walking by could see. If I were to run into a Brad and TJ duo they would learn all kinds of medical details that hey, might help Brad in his firefighting mode some day! And he would feel like that woman walking back to her car.

    No, their car technically didn’t break down. They made it look like it did. Plus with the idiot there in the spot. I would have had to walk those extra spaces as it was. I do have something I do want to do. And that is get a bunch of bumper stickers printed out saying – I love to break the law by parking in handicapped spaces. Even though I’m not disabled.And slap one onto the car that is there that does not have either the plates or the placard.

    “or if someone handicapped is in the car”

    Doesn’t matter—if they’re staying in the car, there’s no need to use the handicapped space. The spaces are there to make it easier for people who are handicapped to get in and out of the business. “There’s a handicapped person in the car who isn’t getting out” is just a ruse to force poor old Aunt Gert to go with you when you do errands instead of staying home and watching “Matlock” like she wants to.

    If they’re getting out, you’re obligated to have plates or the placard to use the space.

    She’s far too important to walk from a non-handicapped space. That’s the bottom line.

    So you will let illegal parking pass for you? That is some messed up thinking.___________________________________No I don’t think so. My wife has heart problems and asthma but she says she needs to exercise (see previous post about the cardio-rehab). So she didn’t get a sticker or tag. My father is 94 and wheelchair bound. He (I) use(s) his mirror hanger, whenever I take him out to eat at his favorite place. There are 8 ADA parking places right in front of the doors including two van unloading areas. Many times when we drive up they are all taken. I don’t check to see if all of the vehicles have the tags or plates. I assume they belong there and that’s it. I unload my dad and wheel him into the restaurant and leave him to chat up the hostess while I go park in a conventional place. Not a big deal. Not messed up thinking; just assuming the vehicles belong there even if I can’t see the sticker. Sticker checkers should be the cops or the restaurant employees at least.

    I need to just throw two situations at you lot.

    1) Sometimes people are disabled in a way you would clearly recognise and accept, but its not obvious. An example is someone I know with a prosthetic leg (from hip level) who sometimes chooses to cover the metal in clothes/fake skin etc to make it look normal from any distance. They still have trouble with various parts of walking far or going up steps that varies by day as well, but they can certainly gym the rest of their body and they can certainly hop out to an atm on most days without looking too awkward. I don’t see any real reason to force them to park three spaces down because they’re having a good day… part of continuing to have good days is not doubling the distance they walk!

    2) Sometimes people are disabled in ways that you don’t clearly understand and accept. For example, the vast majority of people in wheelchairs can walk. The distance and the smoothness might vary, but the fact that they can stand up and walk at all is not that weird. Buckets of wheelchair users go to gyms – slightly more would except staff can get very distressed that they don’t know how safety works, and understandably not everyone wants to go through that. The other day a lift was broken at a highway service complex I was at, and a very kind coach/physio was carrying the sports wheelchair up and down the stairs for one of the kids there. He was navigating them slowly with the handrail. You could really tell it wasn’t the easiest task ever, and it was slow, but it meant he could join everyone else getting food. No one wants to stand out. If she has mobility issues but at that moment can walk normally to and from the atm, she’s going to act normal about it! Then imagine its normally crutches, or a cane… even easier to not need for five feet and just be in the car out of sight.

    3) I also just want to remind people there are some other invisible disabilities that can still result in handicapped placards for safety. If someone is deaf giving them a place to park with easy access to sidewalks/buildings mean they get run over by crazy parking lot drivers less.

    I’m not saying that people don’t use placards fraudulently or take up handicapped spaces when they don’t even have one at all, and that’s something which should be addressed, but the comic as written comes across both ableist and perpetrating some really horrible stereotypes.

    I like this idea, where I live it isn’t just handicapped spots, people think they can part where ever they want so long as it is for 10 mins or less. In fact the towing industry was booming off this, but the citizens petitioned the city claiming that tow truck drivers on the prowl shouldn’t be allowed to tow someone who leaves their car parking in the middle of the travel lane for 5 mins while they run into a friend house, etc…until after 10 mins. Thus the city passed a resolution that no one can get towed until after 10 mins.

    That being said while I may agree with TJ, and have considered doing things like that myself…I don’t personally have an hour to waste to prove a point that won’t make a difference to one who already does not care.
