Ok, this just happened a while back while going to work. I work in a very populated city (Downtown Toronto). I park at City Hall. It's a little more expensive then other lots but it's a heated underground parking garage and I can take the underground PATH all the way to work, which means I don't have to step outside in this cold weather and don't have to clear snow/ice and wait for the car to warm up. The problem with this is that everybody and their monkey likes to park there too especially around Christmas time, to do their shopping. So anyways one day last week I was a little bit late and the lot was completely full!!! All 3 levels!!!! So I decided to park in a spot which was designated as "Pregnant woman/Mother with Child". At the time, all 10 spots were open. I went to work and had a pretty normal day.
At the end of the day I make my way back to the car and it just so happens that all 10 spots were then full and there is a lady getting in her car with two kids, around 5 years old. The lady gives me a horrible look and says, "You know, they're giving tickets out to people like you." That is when I lost it with this lady. I told her that they're not because it's a "COURTESY SPOT". I have recently had reconstructive knee surgery and could've easily gotten a Handi-tag. I let her know of this but she didn't seem to care. I also told her that her two kids seemed to be quite mobile and could've walked a little bit. This bitch was probably shopping for 8 hours straight dragging her kids through the mall, while I'm dragging my sorry-ass gimpy leg and she's going to tell me that these spots are for people who "need" them..... I DON'T THINK SO. I told her to f-off and have a nice day and went on my way!

I'm thinking that these courtesy spots are really lame. There should be a spot for "I've got to take a really bad piss" spot too. That would've saved me a few times. Soon we'll be seeing parking spots for everybody! Once pregnant ladies and Mothers with child get their own parking spots it won't be too long before the elderly get their own and then God knows who else. Dammitt! Just do away with these stupid spots! Why aren't their any "Men with Child" spots????

This flame forum didn't really help me any! I still feel pretty pissed about the whole thing. What do you guys think?

That is so stupid!... I don't understand what her problem was, she HAD A SPOT IN THE FIRST PLACE... people like you?... And I mean, what exactly did she mean by that? People like you that park there every friggin day and work while others have the luxury to go shopping? Who is she kidding?

I feel for you Mark, I can't believe she was giving you attitude.

Not that this fits into the story.

But I think they should making courtesy 'lazy' parking spots for people like myself.

Though I will agree with Mark, I too have parked once in a baby carriage spot cause I was driving around the parking lot for 30 mins looking for a god damn parking spot so I can put money in the freaking bank and leave. When I got out of my car with my friend and ran across the roadway, throw the money in the machine and leave.

Stupid old man complained about it too, my friend gave him the <img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0> and a Merry Christmas.

Old man was pissed.

Anyone ever play chicken in a mall parking lot to try and get a spot that you and someone else saw at the same time? hehehe that always fun!

Man, those spots are bull sh!t. When my mom was pregnant with me, she went skiing (maybe that's why...) I see women at my work that drive around those motorized things. Women now are way to lazy and I contribute that to the decay of our society...

uhhhhh.... dude, that's a little harsh man. Realize that by saying "women" you are talking about our moms and stuff. My whole point was that these courtesy spots are full of **** and should be taken away!

Atleast I think that's what my point was! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I also hate these courtesey spots, and so I park in them as often as possible.

At my gym, the first two row of parking (enough for about 20 cars) say "parents with children". Bull$hit to that, I park there all the time anyway. It makes no sense...I mean, clearly the parent is in fine shape, since they're going to the gym....and these damn lazy kids only have to go down to the daycare centre, let em' walk.
