Susans Scribblings: November 2012

WHAT IS LOWER THAN STEALING A DISABLED PARKING SPACE IN BROCKVILLE?? THIS GUY IS!!

Yesterday, November 26th 2012 in Brockville, Ontario, at the local Walmart store, I discovered this ignoramus driver of a silver VW not only chose to illegally park his car in a Disabled Parking spot, but he parked in between our car and another disabled driver, creating his own "third" spot!!

I had my 84 year old Mother with me and, thank goodness she was having a good day and her wheelchair was not necessary!

Otherwise, we would not have been able to open the door to allow her to maneuver from the chair to the car.  Nor, would the driver of the vehicle on the other side, in the legal parking spot.

I was so absolutely livid that I took these two photos and marched back into Walmart and had them announce over their speakers, that this disrespectful driver immediately remove his car or have it ticketed and towed.

Unfortunately, he skulked out of the store and made his way to his car before I could get back there.  

My Mother however, was in the car and she watched him slink into his car and was able to give him only a filthy, scathing look, unlike what I wished I could have said or done!

He was 'youngish' and he raced out of the illegal spot at a speed that should have earned him another ticket!!

Here is a close up of his license plate -   If you recognize this, please do one of two things:

1.  Report him to the police

2.  Let him know how disgusting a practice it is to take a parking spot from someone who obviously requires it and is legally entitled to it! And to park where there is not even a space and make it impossible for wheelchair access?  Unbelievable!!

Better yet, do BOTH!!

And,

if you yourself have ever ever thought about illegally parking in a disabled spot, stop and think for a moment about why they are reserved!!!

And,

pray that you never ever need this yourself, for you or your parents, grandparents, child . . .

If you're thinking about selling, I'd love to meet with you and provide a Market Analysis and go over my Marketing Plan - it is the little things that make the difference.**
