    Well gee, I think it's a given that a paralyzed person can't work. I think he's trying to say, people you see out in their yards, doing yard work, working on their vehicles, all kinds of other things.

    I am amazed at the extremism that threads like this bring out.

    Yes. I have the audacity to think if we shouldn't have to tolerate anti-semitism, then we shouldn't tolerate ableism either.

    which has nothing to do with this thread. Funny how you only see what you want to see.

    I'm just surprised that more people, ESPECIALLY those who are legitimately disabled, are not sickened by the fraudsters.

    I know, many here assume that all of them are legit. Makes one wonder.

    Oh, which poll option should I pick for the paralyzed person then?

    None - there isn't one. Which is my point - stupid troll poll

    APACHERAT also might explain why he supposes this guy with the ADA card would choose to load his truck with all of those nonexistent 100 pound bags of concrete in a handicapped parking spot rather than in the loading zone, which is much closer to the exit door than the parking spots at any Home Depot.

    Lesson: If you are going to totally fabricate an anecdotal story about some "guy" you say you saw this morning to back your arguments on an internet forum, be as vague as possible.

    I would just pick the pain one. It's not like they're exactly comfortable.
