Very stupid post, Deryl. There are people who need those parking spaces. I applaud your stupidity and insensitivity to the needs of those disadvantaged.


Just one more sip.

+10 As one who just had some serious abdominal surgery, I need to use (temporarily) a handicapped space. I might not look handicapped, but I can only walk short distances (and cannot lift anything over 10lb) for a few months. So, people like Deryl, and those he applauds, piss me off.

A very STRONG response. Deryl you are a real jerk. Sorry for calling you a jerk, but you deserve it. I am handicapped, with an artifical hip. I cannot walk far nor fast. I need that space. Some days I am fine, and others I have the pain, and have a hard time even getting out of a car.

You would also be the one that says I don't need the space on my good days when I do walk well.

People like you are the ipitome [sp] of "People that bother me'... I do hope that you never have a medical issue.

Note to my brethern here: Sorry for the rant.

His other comments re rest rooms are off the wall too. Ramps are required for wheel chairs, even if only used once or so a day. I have had to push wheelchairs as a medic for my patients. Yes they are needed. As for the stalls, try to get a wheelchair turned and set in a 30" wide space.

In the State of Florida licensed contractors MUST pass an ADA class to get their GC license. They also need to understand the code for such.

Deryl needs to operate as a handicapped person for a day or so, and then he would realize the why these facilities are required. Maybe we can get him a 'Texas traveler' in case he gets stuck. Big Grin

It is to be expected. This is a wine forum where men are fussy about food and beverages.

much like the reason to dope is due to the event and the rest of the field rather than the performer.


Should have lip synced the whole event. That would include the speaches

Sorry guys. In no way did I say or infer that accessibility isn't needed or deserved. Only that we are putting in excess capacity from my perspective. That is going to vary between locales depending on local demographics.
I install the facilities and make sure they comply, and I never park in a handicapped stall.

Have to admit, there seems to be more handicapped spots than necessary around town....maybe handicapped people are just cheap and don't shop much. Razz

State and Fed law dictate the percentage of places required. However there are inadequate parts in it. Our local medical facility that caters to old people has a parking lot for 173 cars yet only 3 places assigned. Real crazy. For those that have a need, there aren’t any.
Our Golf club has valet parking area and has 5 places assigned, and 3 for the close in parking by the valets. The exercise area only has three for 125.

I always throw them out as soon as they show up at the front door.

But then my wife scolds me... Apparently she is one of the few remaining people who use them.

So, if they make it into the house, then they can stay. But if I get my hands on them before then, they are goners.

Not a person, but I had when wine stores (usually via email) offer some wine you've never heard of and then show a quote from a wine critic that pertains to the vintage not that actual wine. Been seeing a lot of that with 2010 Bordeaux and S. Rhone.

Phone books, LOL We have not had a land line in years, much less looking up a phone number.

I have not taken any newspapers ( local, WSJ) in years ( online only) yet the freaking DMN still throws some part of their paper in my yard four times a week. Mad We go to the mailbox once a week, pick up the mail, papers then straight to recycle bin.

Still get two papers a day, like the feel of the newspaper, and also the 'ceremony' if you will of sitting down with the paper when the kids are in bed. We do recycle them.


I think I might be able to help with the Pan, Pam dilemma

I like getting the local papers.

The Sunday paper sure is a disappointment these days. I used to be able to sit down and spend a couple of hours going through the Sunday edition. Now, it usually takes about 20 minutes.

I'm also a newspaper guy. Perhaps that also makes me a "get off my damn lawn" guy. Except I have a townhouse and don't own (or need to maintain) lawn.

Mondays is a 5 minute read. What nothing happens in a county of 1 MILLION over a weekend, and no real news of the nation or world/ The post S&#%s.

What gets me now is reading the local paper, finding it's mostly recycled stories from other sources, and having to endure all the spelling and grammatical errors. My high school paper had higher standards than this. Ack
