I Applaud Walmart

For their concern for the well-being of their handicapped customers....


But I gotta think this isn't terribly convenient.

At least there's a cut-out so wheelchairs can cut in front of traffic.
That's gotta count for something, I guess.

    1. That's what I thought. I looked around but there were no other stores nearby.

  2. Normally disabled spots are pretty close to the entrance. It could be something evil like them wanting to remind their disabled customers of how they ended up disabled in the first place.

  3. perhaps a mistake by the contractors who painted the space. My work has a fire sign upside down.

    1. Seriously (I know. Hard to believe) this is what I think. I know there's a federal law which mandates so many handicapped spaces per parking lot. If you'll notice, there's a curb around what is a mini parking lot a couple hundred yards from Walmart. So, it is a standalone parking lot. Meaning, they have to put in handicapped parking (no matter how frikkin' ludicrous).
      FULL DISCLOSURE: There were about six handicapped parking spaces right next to the door. But, I thought this was funnier.

  6. The handicapped person parking this far away will need to be an olympic blade runner to reach the store.

    1. Or for those who don't care when they get to the store.

  7. This seems like an interesting way to place a parking spot.

    1. They had the stencil and extra paint so figured, why not?

  8. The handicapped parking spots are great. You can park close but then you enter the humongous store and indubitably, everything you could possibly need is at the back of the store! Gotta love Walmart!

  9. It's the handicapped parking spot for handicappers with new cars! Duh! Park far away so no one hits your car...errr...van!

    1. That's probably true. Who needs the use of your legs when you have a bitchin' ride?

  10. Maybe it's the angle, but the space doesn't even look big enough for an average sized car let alone a van...

    1. That's what I thought, too. But it's legit.

  11. Maybe this store offers shuttle bus service complete with a Walmart greeter.

    1. A Walmart greeter on board. How sweet would that be?

    2. Our walmart greeter is IN a wheelchair (and incidentally has the best hair I have ever seen on a man!)... maybe it's the employee parking lot?

    3. I had considered that. But, if so, they need to get a better union.

  12. This really isn't helpful, it's great they provide more but I can't see many disabled people benefiting from this spot haha!

  13. Yeah, I'd go with that the handicapped sign was painted in the wrong spot. I saw some guys ready to paint over the template on the street for the word "STOP" but they had the sign reversed so it would have said "POTS". Uh, okay? Would the next sign say PANS?

    1. And who says spelling class was overrated?

  14. But what the photo doesn't reveal is that all of those parking spots in between are also handicapped spots!

    1. Which explains why everyone in town walks with a limp.

  15. Maybe they put in a parking lot before the actual store? It's just gonna be a really tiny store.

    1. I honestly think they were just trying to comply with federal mandates. Or they were jerks.

  16. Yeah what a weird place to have a disable parking spot unless you are hoping to kill off the disable which is not a good thing to do

    ReplyDelete
  17. That space should belong to the intellectually handicapped fool who put it there.

  18. I'm surprised somebody who isn't supposed to park there hasn't parked there.

  19. I was tempted. But, it was a long ass walk.
