Yesterday during Group Therapy, we read an email from a Rock-A-Holic named Lori who wasn’t sure what to do with someone at her gym who might be doing something illegal.
Lori recently saw a woman at grocery store that goes to her gym. They both takes the same yoga class and she sees her run miles on the treadmill.
When she was at the store, she noticed the woman park in a handicap spot and pulled out a handicap placard out of her glove compartment and put it on her rear view mirror.
Since she has seen her capably able to work out, she found it odd that she had a handicap placard.
Lori wasn’t sure if she should say anything to this woman while at the gym because it has been bothering her that she thinks she doesn’t need the placard.
We all know a person who has to deal with the day to day challenges of living with a disability and it irritates us when we see a person using a parking spot who doesn’t need too.
Let’s be honest, aren’t we all also mad at them because they are getting away with something that we are not allowed to do? It’s not fair that they have the same capability as the rest of us yet are doing something we would get punished for.
The way I see it, we don’t know if this woman actually has a real condition, so it’s best everyone mind their own business and if she is doing something illegal, hopefully karma will catch up with her in a big way.
Lung cancer, mesothelioma, MS, etc and so on. Not all disabilities are visible. How closed minded can you be to think you can judge if someone is disabled?
Running 10 miles in the gym says something about being able to walk a few feet at the sipermarket. If you have good and bad days, use the placard on bad days.
Lazy fat people
I guess I have a disability too called big a** headache from lazy fat people who think they are entitled to something. Who would of thought that Big Mac every day would make you gain weight. Yeah your body starts to break down, your knees and back. I really don't believe that those 2 miles you walked around that store then all of a sudden you can't walk those few extra feet to your car.
Are you just looking for things to complain about...
If this is the biggest problem for you on Mercer Island I would say you're leading a charmed life....
Stop being so angry.
