There are so many times that I drive into Tesco and see someone park in a disabled parking spot, get out, and not display a badge, and appear as though they don’t need that spot. Apart from being lazy, it takes up valuable parking spaces from those who really need the assistance – as someone who sometimes uses them when taking disabled relatives to the store, it can be infuriatingly slow to go from one side of the car park to the other, because there are spaces taken up by those who don’t show to need them.
Well, someone secured his bike to a pole which was next to a parking space, and when he got back it had gone. After not being able to find it, he took to writing an angry note, in the hope that whomever had taken it, would return it.
To the individual who stole the bike previously here: If you have a shred of decency you will return it with a new lock and re-evaluate your life
It wasn’t long before another note was attached to the pole – but it wasn’t quite what the owner of the bike wanted:
Hey Bozo, it’s illegal to lock your bike to a handicap pole. Check with the city for your bike. They probably removed it so it would not block a wheelchair accessible van.
I think that’s an absolutely brilliant reply, and nowadays, too many people take to writing angry notes before really finding out about the situation. Don’t get me wrong, an angry note has a time and a place, but this was not either.
To whomever wrote that second note: Thank you and well done! We need more people like you to stand up to others, especially on matters like these where it’s pure laziness or selfishness to not check where you’re putting your bike, and assuming the worst.
