Here There and Everywhere

WoooooHooooooo CO-OP!

It’s hot. It’s humid. I drive to the co-op for a few small things and holy smokes! I see a spot to park, and it’s near the door! I start to park, and I see the handicapped sign, so I go around again, and find another spot about a million miles away. It’s ok, the walk is good for me.

But as I pass the handicapped spots, a car drives in and out pops a perfectly non-handicapped young woman and her two non-handicapped, fully capable daughters!

If looks could kill!

I don’t want to waste a lot of my time on resentment, so I move on.

This week, here is what I see at the co-op:


Wooooo Hoooooooo! Handicapped spots RESERVED for those who have special needs! Blocked off, so as not to tempt the rest of us! Wooooo HOOOOOOOOO, way to go, Co-op!

  4. Well I still prefer the use of a knife or tire spikes. 2 slashed tires is a better punishment for these idiots.

  6. Whatever made you think handicapped parking in Kuwait is for the physically challenged?? Of course, it isn’t. It’s a designate parking space for the intellectually handicapped and the dyslexics. Whereas in Dubai, they are primarily meant for those with a golf handicap.
