I have a handicapped placard and when Iam not feeling good I use it! My autistic son who gets very upset at any and all kinds of altercations was unfortunately with me when this went down.... I had come out of the ice cream shop and wanted to sit and eat my ice cream before driving....makes sense to not eat while driving right?..... so I start eating my ice cream and I notice headlights from behind me..... then I hear yelling ...so I look behind me and there is a car right behind me blocking me in the handicapped spot I was in..... the next thing I see is a lady approaching my window and yelling at me that her mom is handicapped and wants me to move so she can park in the space Iam in! Now....before I go on let me say this....there was another empty handicapped space available right next to the one I was parked in....and my car at the time this was going on was pulled in the handicapped spot but it was pulled in a little bit at an angle...but I was in no way breaking any laws etc! So..the lady continues on saying that since I do not know how to park correctly I have to move my car out of her way.... then she starts calling me a " fat....white, b#$%^" and that it is people like me that make this world a bad place to live..and on and on.... Iam besides myself and I look over at my autistic son and he is crying ( even though he is 21 his autism brings him emotionally to an age of 11 or 12) so now Iam really upset that this lady not only is upsetting me but she is upsetting me son too! I hang my handicapped placard out of the window and yell at this woman that Iam handicapped and that I have a right to be parked there...and if she wants a place to park she can use the parking spot that is handicapped right next to us..... she tells me she is so handicapped that she can barely get out of her car...and I tell her Iam sorry but the space next to us is available ... the she proceeds to pull her car up right next to mine where there in no space to do so and almost side swipes my car... by this time Iam coming unglued.....and finally I just get out of my car and yell at her..."iam not leaving"..so she sits there and honks her horn and won't stop! everyone and their brother was looking and it was so embarrassing since not everyone knew what "SHE" had done to start this nonsense! then the space next to us on the other side which was not a handicapped spot becomes available and she pulls into it....she is and older woman with her daughter and grandkids in the car..... her and the kids get out of the car and she walks into the store and then she walks all the way back out ( looking fine to walk to me,after she said she was so handicapped she could hardly get out of her car!) and writes down my license plate! I just ignore her at this point......but I still cannot believe this happened.....even her daughter and grandkids were yelling at her to leave me alone... and then I had to calm and console my son who is distraught at this point........ This was so unnecessary and just down right mean....and I still cannot believe it happened~ Just wanted to vent........and thank you for allowing me to !
