To the woman who verbally attacked me in the Richland Target parking lot for legally parking in handicapped parking — when someone has a handicap placard and graciously shows you their wallet handicap license, you have no right to verbally assault and scream at them and demand that you have a right to know what their illness is.
When a doctor decides to issue you a handicap license, they are the authority, not you. Handicapped parking is not just for “old people” like you seem to think. The only time we as citizens have a right to wonder, maybe ask or even call the police, is when someone parks in handicap without a placard or license displayed.
I don’t happen to look handicapped, whatever that look is. I must remind people that handicaps are not always visible! Please keep that in mind when you’re giving us the eye up and down our bodies. We are not stupid, we know what you are thinking.
For us, parking a few steps closer helps us have the energy to continue more easily to take care of our families.
