I just don’t know what happened today!!
I think there may be a bit of suppressed anger in me.
I will pre-empt my tale with a foreword. …. I have ALWAYS stayed clear of using a Disabled Parking space…In fact, more often than not I tend to park in a far distant parking space at supermarkets, (much to the chagrin of passengers in my car) to leave closer spaces for folk who cant walk distances as well as I can.
So today, I make a wee trip to the local Co-op and, as per usual park away from the front door. As I approached the door a couple swing their car into the Disabled space, literally leap out of the car and trot comfortably into the store. I notice no Blue ticket on the car , no walking aids or discernible problems with walking for either of the people.
I enter the store behind them and start saying in a fairly loud voice – ‘Make way – Disabled person coming through’ ..eventually the woman turns and says with a rather red face “Ssshhhh, we are NOT disabled” at which I again announce in a loud voice “Well, why did you park in a Disabled Parking Space’… then started announcing “Make way- very lazy person coming through”- they went out and moved their car.
OMG, I have never behaved in such an outrageous way !!
Luckily some of the staff in the store are personal friends..and …well that couple wont do that again!!
