Maybe he was eating several salads? Maybe he’s already lost 200 pounds so far? These things we don’t know, but we do know he definitely threw his trash out onto the ground. That makes him a lowlife to me.

There’s a special place in hell for litter bugs. But there’s an even more special place in hell for all those people who pee on the toilet seats.

Last winter I accidentally parked in a handicap spot in a rest area. There was snow and ice all over the ground. The heat from my engine thawed it and when I was going inside to use the facilities the next morning, I noticed the hc logo in blue underneath the front of my truck. I felt really bad about it, but it wasn't visible when I pulled in and I had to get off the road as it was getting too slick and my hours were dwindling.

I have MS. When walking my balance gets off, especially when it's hot. Some days it feels like as soon as I open my door and the heat hits me, it takes away every ounce of energy I have. I also have "foot drop" which is where my left foot won't always pick up like it's supposed to when I'm walking so it causes me to stumble and occasionally fall. I know other drivers see me walking around and think im beyond drunk and then I drive away. Im truly surprised I haven't had the police called on me lol. I also can't walk very far, regardless of the weather, without being completely exhausted. Those are the reasons I have a handicap placard. Before I became disabled I used to also wonder how someone can be disabled and drive a truck. I figured out out the hard way...

Hey P.C! You will see veterans that have disabilities. They get hired frequently. They have to get waivers sometimes as previously mentioned but they won't obtain them unless they are capable of handling the equipment. The only stupid question is the one unasked...confused.gif

Old school, you are one funny guy! Those of us who are from Lufkin aren't so entertaining due to Angelina county being dry for so many years..smile.gif

Hopper, you are 100% correct there! 80% disabled vet here, have a HC Placard that I rarely use, don't need a waiver to pass my DOT either. But when I do need to use it, I am thankful there is a space available! Normally I am the guy who likes to park as far in the back of the lot as possible as far away from the buffet bandits as I can get!! I am also "that guy" who will not hesitate to call the state troopers to ticket the lazy drivers parking in those spaces without a placard! Have fun explaining the $250 minimum fine and CSA points to you company!
