BFFs, I have a question for you:
Let’s say you had ankle surgery and your doctor helped you get a temporary handicap parking sticker. Let’s also say that you’re finally progressing well and most days you don’t really *need* the sticker. In fact, today was one of those days. You’re feeling pretty good!
You pull into a store’s parking lot and notice that most of their 17 handicap parking spaces are empty. As you drive down the parking lane, you see one regular spot open – right next to the handicap spots!
Where do you park; in the ‘close to the door’, non-handicap spot or in one of the several open handicap spots? And why?
Think about it a little bit before you answer:
Or maybe an older couple, who tire easily could park in that nice close spot, but they couldn’t park in a handicap spot, because they’re not ‘that’ old.
And what about a “normal” person who’s in a hurry to grab their kids from daycare? Couldn’t they use a close spot?
BUT….what if you take a handicap spot and a dozen other handicap people come to the store while your in there. There aren’t any spots left, and the last handicap person to enter the parking lot had to park half-way down the row, while you didn’t ‘really’ need to park close today.
What would YOU do?
