Mock the Disabled? Justice is served many years later

+3367 – This is a story about a piece of shit receiving their deserved karma several years later.

Many years ago, I worked in the lovely career of retail. It’s sadly normal for there to be a constant flow of shop scum that make you despise their existence and there are those that are so horrific that what they do is burned into your mind forever. Fortunately, one of these unforgettable moments allowed me to extract my revenge.

I had only worked in retail for 1 year in this newly built store and was starting to settle in. Getting to know the great customers and understanding that some people shouldn’t be allowed outside, which being a shy person who hates conflict wasn’t the best but at least one of my customers was an absolutely adorable elderly lady who always made time to talk and was an absolute joy to be with.

It had been some weeks since I had last seen her but one morning, I see her car park into the disabled parking bay (as she already has a blue badge) only this time she hobbled out of the car on crutches with a pot on her leg.

I didn’t have chance to talk to her yet when a works truck (Which did not have a blue disabled badge) pulled into the disabled space next to her and out jumped an early 40’s builder with their teenage kid.  Well, this little old lady was having none of this and must have absolutely massive balls of steel and stood up to this ignorant Builder and politely informed them that they shouldn’t be parking there as it’s for the disabled and he doesn’t have a badge.

What happened next, I can’t forget, this Builder decided the best course of action was to humiliate and insult this poor elderly lady in crutches, accuse her of faking her disability and claim the cast on her leg was a fake and that she probably milks the benefit system for as much money as possible, then walks off putting on an over dramatic fake limp laughing away with their teenage kid whilst the old lady stood there in shock.

Sadly, being one who lacks courage I did absolutely nothing about it and that would stick with me forever. I tried feebly to ask a manager later to do something about it but they didn’t care or want to get involved.

For years, I worked in this store always seeing this scum builder come in and out. Fortunately, I never interacted with this scum builder but I saw them often and every time I did, I would always remember what they had done vividly.  I would still see them park in the disabled bays, and even got to the point where I would recognize them by the large blue Mercedes they drove.

Seven years later I was still working in this store, and this scum was still parking in disabled and looking like an absolute cunt. Yet this year I was blessed with good fortune and our store was outfitted with some absolute joyful equipment.

Due to the high number of complaints our store had set up a company to deal with the parking violations, but instead of having external party’s coming in and ticketing cars the staff of the store where given the ticketing machine and it was our duty to go to the carpark and record any cars that violated the parking rules. This was all done digitally and there would be no paper tickets upon the cars. This, was, brilliant. As soon as I found out I knew what I was going to do.

It didn’t take long for me to learn how to use the machine, and it certainly didn’t take long for the opportunity to get revenge and so it began, there where 3 rules for parking and if you break these rules there is a lovely £80 fine in return each time it happened.

The first rule, no parking in disabled without a badge. And I know well that the scum builder is certainly violating this rule and it wasn’t long until I saw him next and as soon as he entered the store, I quickly scurried out with the ticketing machine and lo n behold there was the oversized blue Mercedes in the closest disabled bay, with no badge. I smashed them car details in with some well shot photos and sent the report off so that they would receive a lovely letter of their fine they would ask to pay.

That’s not enough though, but fortunately it takes weeks for them to finally receive the ticket which grants me the opportunity to constantly ticket their parking violations. Because as you would expect the scum would always park in disabled, and as I worked at the front of the store I would always know when they had parked.

After ticketing their car dozens of times, the scum unfortunately learnt their lesson as their oversized blue Mercedes no longer appeared in disabled parking bays. But as you expect the scum would still be scum and they would find their new parking space inside child parking

Rule two, don’t park inside child parking without a child. Had this scum gotten enough I thought? Of course, not they haven’t learnt their lesson and continue to be a complete wanker and park in the child parking which we didn’t have many spaces for.

At this point, I knew all their car details by heart and would gleefully fill out the ticket machine as I skipped over to their car violating the child parking and take the photos needed for them including shots of their cat seats that bare no child seats in them.

And as it became routine this once again carried on a few weeks more of tickets being created and eventually they start receiving the fines.  Fortunately, me being me I am completely invisible to others and often looked over and I have yet to be seen or caught.

But as all good things must eventually come to an end, when the scum came into the shop their blue turd automobile was no longer there in child parking, or disabled. Has the scum finally learnt their lesson? Would you be surprised if they had not. As it didn’t take me long to find them.

Rule 3, you must park inside a marked bay. And what a surprise the scum still manages to fuck this up. They would park over the line, taking two spaces up. Well guess what? That’s a job for me and my ticket machine! Trying to park inside taxi parking but can’t fit the big ass car in it? Boom that ain’t inside a marked bay and ka-ching another ticket and fine for the. Have one single wheel slightly over the white line of a bay? Well guess who technically broke the rule. That’s right scumbag did!

And there goes a few more weeks of fun, until eventually scumbag runs out of ways that they can possibly break the rules and our company hires externally to start ticketing Cars so my beloved weapon of justice goes to rest.

Now I know what people are probably going to say, that all these fines are not enforceable because of  

blah blah blah but I honestly don’t care for a few reasons. Firstly, I’m being paid to do this, so either way my time or money isn’t wasted. Secondly it did have an effect as they repeatable changed their parking habits. And thirdly even if they don’t end up paying, they are still going to spend a fuck ton of the time and effort trying to overturn them over and over again, having to constantly be harassed by mail.

Over all if all the fines are counted separate and added up, they would have received thousands of pounds worth of fines building up overtime for being scum.

Cherry on the top about 3 years later I walk by this piece of scum on the carpark and watch as they scream at some innocent dude in a high vis jacket accusing them for being the one giving them all parking fines . Which put me at peace knowing this must have seriously got to them and cost them to still be raving mad after 3 years.

Short version: I give someone many small parking fines adding up to the thousands of £ for insulting a disabled lady several years earlier.

  1. I’m glad you were finally able to act on it! Wish you were able to see the old lady again and tell her about it!

  2. I worked at a supermarket for several years to support myself through uni, largely on the cigarette/lottery/complaints desk

    The store was next to my old high school where i was relentlessly bullied, including a physical assault that ended up with me basically needing a new knee. I quit school that Summer & managed to negotiate a place through clearing at the local uni, based on grades I’d already achieved

    My role at the store made me Guardian of the Cigarettes Scratchcards & Vodka Miniatures on Friday nights, the entire opening hours of Saturdays & the entire opening hours of Sundays – this meant refusing sale of these items to every single one of my former bullies, based on their requested ID ‘being clearly fake’ or ‘sorry, I can’t sell alcohol to you as you’re clearly already drunk’ or ‘sorry, I cant sell you skins without you also buying rolling tobacco, but i cant sell you that as you can’t prove your age’.

    Naturally, they initially protested loudly that we were in the same year at school & I knew they were over 18, but if they had any complaints? They were already talking to the complaints chick.

    It was a crap town in the mid 90’s & they didn’t have many other options, so they’d shuffle off, their weekend plans at least somewhat ruined…for the 5yrs I worked there

    Very petty, very childish, but 25yrs on, I can look at my surgery scarred leg & remember those golden moments, rather than remembering getting my ass kicked, simply for being a girl who liked girls in a backwards hellhole of inbred shellsuit clad chavs

  3. Anyone who thinks parking fines in a private lot are not legally enforcable either lives in an area where people just don’t CARE to enforce them, or is just plain uneducated.

    Parking infractions (and other vehicular laws) on private property are handled differently, but they *are* enforceable. I don’t know about different states in the USA or different European countries, but those things are covered by the “Trespass to Property” act here in Ontario (Canada), and – if the lot owner actually enforces it – the perpetrator *can and will* be ticketed/towed/arrested by regional law enforcement

  4. If it wasn’t the consequences of their own actions.

    That was a very satisfying read. Thank you!

  5. Even if he doesnt pay them, itll be a pain in the hole getting them pretty much every other day

  6. I was having a bad day today, but reading this brought a huge smile to my face, thank you for your service

  7. I worked at company that had two handicapped parking spots near the front door. I worked part-time so all the closest spots were taken by the time I got there. Three employees had handicapped placards. Another man and I had them for ourselves although he often worked off site. The third person had it for his wife.

    I got tired of walking in from the back lot so I mentioned the problem to to my supervisor who was the HR manager. She said leave it alone. So I didn’t.

    A couple of days later I called parking enforcement and somebody got a ticket. There was usually a handicapped spot available when I got to work after that. That ticket was about $350 to $400. Expensive lesson.

  8. I was waiting for the car to be towed and compacted at a junk yard. I’m very disappointed.

    Edit – a word was missed

  9. I hate those fockers that take grandma’s disabled parking placard using it to block those who need the wide/close parking spots everywhere they. I would pay good money for the privilege of being able to dish out those tickets.

  10. Nothing good comes of mocking the disabled.

    My poor dog has arthritis in his left rear leg. He now walks much slower and with a limp.
    I still love him dearly, but jokingly call him “Cripple cow” because he’s black, white and limpy.
    …low and behold, I got sick and developed nerve damage. My left leg is bad and I have a pronounced limp. Will for the rest of my life.
    He and I limp the same way. I have since assumed the moniker of “Dirty Cripple” to atone for my gentle mockery of my dog. The irony has not been lost on me.

  11. People might say these types of fines are unenforceable, but you can be taken to court for not paying them.

    Generally these companies wont bother as it costs more to take u to court than the original fine, but if you rack up enough of them babies it starts to make it worth their while.

    Private parking company Parking Eye (their name, interestingly enough, is Latin for “cunts”) took a guy to court a few years ago for about 15k (i think) in unpaid fines and won.

  12. You are a fucking GOD! Like please tell me your name and I will light a candle and pray to you oh God of revenge.

  13. Where I am, parking in a disabled bay with no placard is a 300-600$ fine handed out by the police

    Can also be towed on-top of that.

  14. It may work differently in your country, but over here we just call the cops. A wheelchair violation is a $500 fine, and they’re all too happy to come write those.
