Sometimes I think the “entitled parking” photos sent in by alert “06880” readers are spoofs. Set-ups. Something other than real.
Because how in the real world could anyone come up with a parking idea as self-centered and obnoxious as this?
But it actually happened, today in the lot behind the Y.
As the photographer noted, today’s weather featured sleet and ice. It was particularly treacherous for anyone needing a handicap spot.
But this driver (New York plates) took up not one but both handicap parking spaces — clearly marked with lines and signs.
And no, there was no handicap parking permit hanging from the mirror. No driver in sight either.
“As a native New Yorker, living in Weston, I cannot come up with an explanation why someone would park this way,” the photographer writes.
“It is much more difficult than pulling in or backing in would have been, given the tight space. As someone walking with a cane in icy weather, this is pretty frustrating.”
I hope the driver had a good workout at the Y. Particularly on the cardio equipment. Because clearly this person’s heart needs serious work.
