Couple months ago an older guy pulled up with a Lambo to my restaurant and parked in the handicapped spot. His wife had trouble walking, looked like Parkinson's disease. If I hadn't seen them get out of the car I too would have though some rich douchebag parked there.

It's easy to find on google considering you have the number there along with the name.

If they have a tag, then they can legally park there. Like I said, sure, some people get these tags just because they can and want to use the spaces (usually abused by obese people), some take their moms tag, etc, but I personally don't want to judge someone like the guy who wrote the note, and be wrong. Its not my place.
Really? I can tell my dad to get a handicap tag then?

"self...if you can get in and out of a Ferrari, how handicapped could you be?"

Then entire story gets a from me.
This. I have a handicap plaque and I've had people say stuff to me when I don't display it. I feel no anger but happiness that someone would stand up for that.

Anyone who would be offended is a fat puss.

Only in America can you eat your way into better parking. There are way too many people with disabled parking permits that shouldn't have them.
