Sort of like Handicapped Parking here in the states. Amazing how many young, healthy people have permanent disabilities.

The law of unintended consequences at work. You get more of what you reward.

To me it’s the same as the old whites only bathrooms and water fountains.

And it should be unconstitutional.

since there is no ID card stating that one is handicapped, what constitutes proof?

That’s one I feel really bad about. When I travel, particularly internationally, I carry a cane. Partly it’s because my knees get sore after a long day of walking, etc. Partly it’s because the cane is a universally accepted (i.e., TSA can’t take it away from you) defensive tool. In Amsterdam’s airport a couple years ago, I rested on my cane for a moment before the hyper-attentive attendant forced me into the disabled line. Fortunately, justice prevailed and the disabled line took longer than I would have if I just stayed where I was, but I now keep the cane firmly attached to my baggage while I’m in the airport.

When I'd fly with my elderly Dad we’d have him in a wheelchair but they always waved that electronic thing over him.When it went off we'd explain that he had an artificial hip.Since I've gotten *my* metal hip I've had some fun tripping the alarms at various airports.But on one occasion I had a fair amount of trouble (Vietnam) but it was eventually resolved.

I see American Airlines employees are involved in another smash mouth bully attack on customers. Given they are pretty abusively insane employees/union, I don’t believe this latest attack on customers.

It’s like teachers hating on parents because their children are illiterate after attending the local union public school.

Who knows what to believe and given the level of insane abuse at airports from Homeland inSecurity and American Airlines, any trick people can use to get around the abuse of the pervert goons is fine with me. People lie in oppressive nations. They don’t respect and they undermine the communist process and State authority, and the feeling is mutual from their authoratative abusers.

When I have to travel, I get a letter from my doctor stating that I will need assistance.

I have pretty bad arthritis, and on a recent whirlwind business trip to Vancouver, BC, even WITH the assistance, I was a complete physical wreck by the time we started the trip home.

Nothing makes me do a double take more than seeing a Ford F350 SuperCrew truck three feet off the ground with a handicapped placard hanging from the rear view mirror.

Then seeing all the occupants get out, with no help required.

The whole victimized entitlement fallacy crystallized in my mind when, I walked to the grocery store with 20 dollars in my pocket, aiming to make it stretch to last me over the weekend in groceries, and when I arrived to the store parking lot, there were two 300#+ EBT queens sumo wrestling over the last available motorized cart.

One of them had a disabled tag on her car, I don’t know if she was the one who finally won the motorized cart...
