Accessible Parking for Handicapped Watermelons
Did the guy park the trailer here while the store was closed? No one noticed it until the second I started to take a picture? Is that 2x4 bolted to concrete pillars that are embedded 6 feet or more in the ground? Frankly, from my perspective as someone who has parked many a boat trailer, it just looks like the trailer prop has been lowered to rest on the 2x4, and there is nothing preventing you from calling the police, who are quite capable of removing this trailer and slapping a big 'ole impound fee. If this "young man did not know any better" (I confess to questioning the likelihood that anyone able to drive, back a trailer and has a license is so 'young' as to not know that the big blue wheelchair and the sign that says "$200 fine" does not know this is not a place to park a watermelon trailer) does not know this, it is probably a good time to insure he knows for the future.
Sometimes, life is just tedious. Some--perhaps many--would say it is a small thing and not worth making a fuss over. But then, there were plenty of folks who thought that about who had the right to vote, or own property, or go to college...
