Mentally Challenged Parkers

While in McDonalds Shah Alam, this young scrawny punk drove his red sports car and parked in the middle of the two handicapped parking bays. So not only did he park in a space allocated for the Physically Challenged, he also took up two spaces for his precious car. I managed to snap a picture of him as he walked by:

Me: Please don't park in the handicapped bay
Doofus: Huh?
Me: Are you physically challenged?
Doofus: No?
Me: Then why did you park there?
Doofus: Cannot ah?
Me: No!
Doofus: Who are you?
Me: Just a concerned citizen.
Doofus: So? ... Do what you have to do lah
Fine! So I took this picture:
Some may say that technically he is "correct", because the sign says handicapped to the left and right. It doesn't say anything about parking in the middle! Hah. But driver of BJD 8282, you are a true pillock.

A wonderfully bubbly McDonalds waitress walked by offering free refills (FTW), and I described to her the driver who parked there. 2 minutes later, he was seen driving off and going around in circles looking for a proper place to park.

However 15 minutes later, two other drivers decided that they too are handicapped, and parked in the spot.

Drivers of BHW 262 and WMB 4425, you too must be mentally challenged to be so totally inconsiderate. Shame on you. Parking Cretins.

Driver of car BJD 8282. Pray very very hard that you never ever officially qualify to use these parking spaces. It is no fun for a disabled person to travel twenty kilometers to run errands only find all accessible parking spaces taken up by inconsiderate people like you and leaving us no place else to park.

"... its one way for them to catch notoriety and be marked by their behavior and be splattered over different blogs for being shown to be inconsiderate. Shame on them!"

we should have some tow truck uncle's contact handy for situations like these... nuhtin funnier than morons asking what they did wrong while helplessly watchin their cars being towed away... and then you show them the picture... nya-ha!

Ashleigh said...

Sigh, the things mentally challenged drivers do.

I agree with the above commentor, someone should tow their cars away! Hahahaha!!

How did you snap that guy's photo? Did he know you snapped his photo?

Yoon Kit said...

@mgmerv: Yup, towing would be great. Just that you cant find reliable towtruck operators nowadays.

@ashleigh: I just stood infront and snapped away, and then we had the conversation. He clearly stated that I could "do what I have to do", which gives me all the right to shame him now.

MLM people... no wonder he got money to buy that car.

Min said...

Too bad the money he earned couldn't by him civic consciousness or a brain! sigh...

earl-ku said...

KLProx said...

sbanboy said...

Hats off to you for pointing it out to them ... yeah I just dont understand these people ...duhi

ku E said...

elle said...

Hey YK, hope you do not mind me using that photo in my blog- I did link it back to your blog.Some people cannot be bothered to follow links and I do think he should be made infamous.

Yoon Kit said...

elle, Of course you can use the pic. Spread it far and wide. He should be named and shamed.

earl ku, Yeah, he's a great representation of the SYN network. Arrogant.

min, money could buy you a civic, but certainly not civic consciousness.



yk.

Obefiend said...

dude this is internet justice

congrats on exposing mentally challenged malaysian on the web.

but wait

if they are mentally challenged, does that mean they are now handicapped thus making their parking in the disabled slot legit?

hoho

Iszuddin said...

Yeah. I hate this. And I always see this happen. There's nothing wrong with the driver at all -- and you should be thankful. And when a real driver who needs it arrives, it all taken up by all these retards.

I like what they have at IKEA where they put the clamp right at the parking spots. Sure scare the fully capable people from parking there.

Degenerasian said...

Kid are so selfish these days.
You've done your civic duty!

Mr.Buyot said...

hahaha... tembak je!

husainiphoto said...

baru pakai s2000 sudah berlagak, kalau pakai ferrari mesti parking tengah tengah jalan

JT said...

we may rant all abot it here... but will we do the same in the real world? think for a sec b4 answering.....
the parking spaces obviously were erected on a private property eg The mcdonald, it will be them to exercise whether to take any action or not.
nevertheless...hats off to you, YK for raising the awareness. The message goes far beyond the s2000!
The bottom line is tht whoever the authority is, they all lack the ability in enforcing the codes.

razlan said...

hi all

thank you for highlighting this matter. would appreciate if patrons of McDonalds can highlight any problem to the manager on duty. they would be able to take the necessary action.

JT said...

hi Razlan, as u r with the Mcdonald. May I ask you what options will the managers hav in their sleeves if someone parks illegally? and what if no one comes forth to move his/er car..?

won't it be logical to be clear n precise by informing the consequences on the same signpost?

Kenny said...

I think the S2000 owner think his car is a tank. Need to use more space. Also his mentality got problem. Some of the nerves might have stucked.

Danny said...

The are just ASSHOLES!! No other justification needed....

anusha said...

Kudos on a job well done. Very few people observe the handicap parking privileges and even fewer people will bother to point it out to the offender.
Shame on the pig headed moron.
Wish it was possible to have their cars clamped. Fine RM 1000.

ViCkiE said...

you're one of the brave person who dare to snap a photo of that car owner together with the car!

JASON said...

yoon kit,u r a brave me, salute to u

TT said...

He's handicapped alright. A fashion handicap. Someone please tell him to send that bright red shirt back to the communist age.

Ben said...

Please excuse him. Looks can be deceiving. He just lost his third leg and his 2 bola, application for the OKU card is being processed now. (notice how close his thighs are)
Perhaps also kopi-o license, that explains why he needs two parking lots for his tiny just pretend "sports car"

BTW, he does look a lot like some blur blur idiot.
