I read the sticker that was splayed across the back of the vehicle..."It's a Je.ep thing, you wouldn't understand." This particular dirty red Je.ep,was "jacked up." I mean this vehicle had monster tires, and was lifted at least two feet above the normal clearance for any vehicle. I began to think how cool it was to have one of these trailblazers when I noticed something else.
The license plate.
It had a handicap symbol on it.
I'll let that sink in.
Setting aside the feelings I already have for those who take advantage of the handicap parking spaces, I began to steam. Well, maybe there is a good reason for it, I thought. Maybe they were handicap and then through intense therapy and the Lord's blessing they currently are able to scale small buildings such as this Je.ep in front of me. Or maybe they give their sweet handicap grandmother rides so often (you know, by hoisting her through an elaborate pulley system into the passenger side) that they were able to qualify.
Whatever the reasoning, it gave my mind something to ponder. I even tried to take a picture with my camera phone, but alas, safe driving prevailed and it was not a success.
So I guess, in the end, it is a Je.ep thing, and I definitely don't understand.
