A warning.

26 November 2012, 10:04

In reply to Lollyj’s letter on those able bodied that park in disabled parking spots “An open letter to those who illegally park in disabled bays…”  24 November 2012 , I believe you were being way to nice when bringing up a subject that disgusts us all when we see it happening every other day.

This article is serves as a fair warning to those guilty of doing this, and I know that there are those of you who are reading this that do park in disabled spots because the weight of your over-blown sense of self-worth makes it hard for you to walk too far, kind of like any of the Kardashians. We all see that you’re driving a 7 series BMW or a Range Rover, great. Good for you. You have a nice car. There is nothing wrong with that at all. Hell, I’d love to have a range Rover, but it’s when you think that because you have a fancy badge on your car, have an expensive lawyer on speed dial, that you can do what you want and flip the proverbial finger at society in general that makes you stand out, for all the worst reasons. Especially when you are confronted by a well-mannered security guard or member of public about your disgusting conduct.

 So now, to those of you who do this and are reading this, fancy car or lawyer that you may have, I am issuing you a warning. Not “if” but most certainly “when” I see you parking in a disabled parking spot, I will patiently wait for you to leave, and I will damage your fancy car. I will do this and get away with it, trust me. I will make sure I am out of view of any security cameras (and yes, checking for these on the sly is very easy) or car guards, and it will be very quick. A key slid along the side of your Range Rover or Porsche is just a stroll past your car,deflate your tires...all four of them, or small hammer knock to your door, a nice expensive dent to tap out your insurance a bit.  When the chance arises (which it one day will), I will go full out and just smack off your side mirror, also very quick. Now that is going to cost you your “out-bonus” for sure. It’s the least you guys deserve for not giving a sh*t about people who have it hard enough as it is in life, and assume we all look on at you in awe at how socially “rebellious” you are. We don’t. You’re not. Get over yourselves.

You are the lowest common denominator in the social gene pool and your ego is what’s wrong with the world, so, like I said, I will risk a court case or assault for the cause of the “little guy”, the people you wipe your feet on because you can, and what’s worse, you’re proud of it.

So, you have been warned, and I hope others do the same to your cars too. Bruising your bank account, even by a little and pissing you off is far more of a pay-off than a note on your window.
