Have any of you able bodied people out there ever parked in a Disabled Parking Bay ,you know, just while you nipped to the ATM or just popped into the shop for a packet of cigarettes ?
Well, I'm a disabled lady with Multiple Sclerosis and I need that space so that my husband (bless him) can get me out of the car and into my wheelchair using a 'person hoist'. I'm trussed up like a chicken, but it has to be. Seeing someone in the next parking bay getting adeptly out of their car is really annoying.
A case in point, at the Garden Centre recently a lady went trotting across the car park with her friends, her husband shouted "Hey, you've forgotten this" and the lady trotted merrily back to the car to retrieve the walking stick she obviously didn't need. I often wish that someone from the Disability Fraud Office (if there is such a place) would sit in the supermarket car park on a cold, wet and windy day and watch how many Blue Badge holders jump out of their cars and run into the supermarket !
Still, I'll moan about them another day, the Carer will be arriving any minute to empty my leg bag, and hoist me into bed.
