Handicap parking?

Just when I begin to think the people that work at my apartment complex are at least a little bit intelligent they go and do something that proves me wrong.

Last night when I was desperately searching for a parking spot that wasn't a mile away from my apartment I pulled into an empty spot. This one spot was crowded by several others and I wondered why it was left open.

So, I looked up and realized at that very moment why that parking spot was indeed left open.... a handicap sign. Now this spot has been a spot I have parked in several times and it was never labeled handicap.

You're probably thinking that adding a handicap spot couldn't possibly be a bad thing right? Well, this spot isn't bad... just in a completely dumb location.

Now I know that not all handicap people are in a wheelchair, but I'd like to think handicap spots are there to cater to those who are. This spot goes completely against the opposite. This spot does not have a ramp, its not any wider than a normal parking spot and if that wasn't enough ... the spot doesn't even connect to a sidewalk.

I can't help but ask myself what handicap human-being would even think this would be a great place to park. My mother had a ton of back problems and she had a handicap placard and I know that if she came over she wouldn't dare park in that spot.

So, like I said... my apartment complex once again proved to me that monkey's can run a business.

Side note:

I am jumping on the bandwagon and offering readers a chance to ask me something they want to know (that's not too personal). If you'd like to ask me a question feel free to leave a comment or email me at swooningthecity@gmail.com

I had seen a similar misplaced handicap spot close to where I live, but I can't remember WHY it was so badly placed...The other day though I saw a HUGE pick up truck (as in, you need a ladder to get inside) in a handicap spot, with the handicap license and all...I was pretty confused as to HOW someone who is handicapped can even get in or out of it, but oh well...;)
