I saw the saddest sight on Sunday. My family and I were out to eat at a local restaurant and seated by the window. I watched a very elderly couple (probably in their 90s) struggle to walk to their car in the parking lot. The wife was especially struggling and her husband gingerly escorted her the entire way to their car. They had a handicapped parking sticker but (as is common in the rural area I live) the handicapped spots were all full. Why? Because we have a high population of obese people, and many of them use handicapped parking passes.
Sure enough, not 5 minutes later I watched a morbidly obese woman probably in her 20s walk to her car with her husband in the very first parking place. After watching the elderly couple struggle to reach their car I was furious to watch an obese lady barely out of her teens taking up a handicapped spot. Had it been a disabled veteran that struggled to his car at the expense of an obese person I probably would have lost it.
A few minutes after that I watched another family, perhaps in their 30s with kids, walk to their car in another handicapped spot. This family was the classic rural Ohio family - all obese. Both parents and the young kids (all under 10 yrs old probably) were morbidly obese. And they too enjoyed the handicapped parking sticker.
Am i the only one who thinks if ANYONE should be parking as far away from the building as possible, its the obese people? Its sad that the truly needy suffer so the obese can be lazy.
