First off, I am not handicapped. Aside from a shattered toe in 10th grade, and a debilitating case of Lyme Disease in 8th grade, I’ve led a pretty healthy 27 years.
That said, the above photo was taken yesterday outside Amore in Snider Plaza. The car did have a handicapped placard, which brought a few conclusions to mind:
1. This is a person with a fake handicapped sticker, because a handicapped person could clearly not get in or out of that truck.
2. This is a driver with a handicapped passenger, in which case the driver (who probably owns a smaller, lower-to-the-ground car) should’ve been more thoughtful and not broken out the Ford F-350 for lunch.
3. This truck is so large that it has a telescoping ramp that slides in and out of the vehicle when the handicapped person needs to exit.
The answer is probably #1, though I’m holding out hope for #3.
