magical blue sticker

I used to be pretty choosy about when I would use my Handicapped Sticker. I saved it for Brewers games and events that would require a ton of walking without it.

I like to think I’m too cool to use it. That’s for the people who need special help, so I save it for them. Yep, go ahead and roll your eyes at me.  

I have started using it more and more during the winter months, every step closer to the door cuts down on my chances of slipping on snow and ice and being more intimate with the pavement than I really desire.

My sticker expires February 2012.  

My husband likes to tease me every time the expiration dates come up.  We like to do a count on the number of days until I’m no longer disabled.  Two months left people, two months.

It really is silly. I have to go make a special doctor appointment and have them sign a form saying “yep, sure enough this girl still has Arthrogryposis”…it’s almost insulting.

Granted I see people all the time with them that make me wonder…I try not to judge but they don’t look all that disabled to me.  So I am grateful they do have some regulations behind this magical sticker.

Am I missing something to this whole process – is there a sticker that doesn’t expire? Have any good handicap parking stories to share? I have a few, one especially that makes me giggle but I’ll save that for another day.  I want to hear yours!

One thought on “magical blue sticker

  1. We have one for my son.. His doesn't expire till 5 yrs from when we got it.. then it would have to be renewed.. I think.. don't quote me on the time amount given lol.. I'd have to look at it.. either way it's not a yearly thing so that's good and less stressful that way 🙂
