A lot of you are going to think I'm a complete piece of shit, but whenever I go get groceries at the local supermarket I park in the expectant mothers parking space every time. It's the principle of the whole thing. I do not believe that getting knocked up entitles you to reserved parking. The store by my apartment has these designated signs that say expectant mother parking with the silouette of a stork carrying a baby in a blanket. ****ing ridiculous.

Where I live, the preggie mothers are driving 25ft SUV's that are 8 feet off the ground. If they can crawl back into that bus, they can walk a few extra feet. Exercise is also good.

Women shouldn't be allowed to drive. I have a thread to that effect.

0-6 months is not that big of deal, but 7-9, my wife bitched incessantly about her back and all the pain she had. It was rough on her.

SO yeah. They deserve a spot, but not to take advantage of it.

I just think we should publically support and remove all obsticles for wifes out to buy beer for thier husbands. If they are pregnant than they can't walk as fast so we need to move them closer to the door. There should also be a special express lane for check-out.

My only concern is how to get the husband a beer when she goes into labor. Maybe a beer drive through window for the wife in labor?

just keep a cooler of a 30 pack in the trunk during the last trimester-


but honestly-

I have kids- and a wife-

and I park in the Pregnant spot any time i want.... i figure since she (my wife whom we are currently under "Contract" I represent her and she I) was Pregnant I deserve to always park in that space-

My wife can park wherever she wants when she's pregnant. She's still willing to "service" me even though her hormones are totally whacked. Most pregnant women are physcially exhausted let alone having to deal with lower back pain.

Drop them off and pick them up without having a designated space just for them. I don't think someone about to hike the ball should have a designated spot for them when they go grocery shopping.

The difference is that most people get fat over time and it is well distributed, it is a bit different being pregnant, your hips are not spreading, you don't have something kicking you in the kidneys and bladder, or pinching your sciatic nerve.

When I was small my best friend had a swimming pool. We would swim until it became dark and cold out and then, before coming into the house, my best friend's father would take the garden hose and rinse us off. It would be freezing out but there we would stand being hosed by cold water and we never complained because his father would always say things like, "Let's see who's the bigger man" and "Real men don't complain."

Seriously, I would never complain that I had to walk farther than a woman, pregnant or not. It's not difficult. Nine times out of ten I can park farther away and still reach the store before the people who waste time looking for the closest spot. Just find a space, park your car and walk.

That always cracks me up, you see these fat asses (same folks who canít push the damn cart to the back), circling around and around looking for a spot close enough so they won't burn off any of the damn fat weighing them down.

Iíll park in the first slot I find and get in the store before they have the engine turned off.

It's not about having to walk further it's about an undeserved entitlement. Getting knocked up shouldn't get you a specially designated parking space.

I thought walking was generally considered good for pregnant women? I mean, I know there are exceptions but if a pregnant women is that limited, then maybe she should be on bed rest. Or possibly get a temp disabled tag.

The place I work at has a ton of "expectant mother" spaces. More of those than handicap spaces. All the women in my office agreed that the spaces weren't neccesary. Maybe in the third trimester.

Outside our store the parking spaces are for parents with toddlers--not expectant mothers. I like it. When ever I go to the store with my 8, 5, 3 year old, I'd rather not walk across the length of th parking lot where people are paying less attention than when they are on the road.

Probably echoing others, but I feel like it is justified, but I don't want to see some milf wannabe, in her running shoes and workout clothes, at 7 weeks, taking up those spaces

Yep! If we can pick up a car to save a baby or child from being killed, I'm certain that when pregnant we can manage to pick up a car to throw at a man denying us closer parking. Wonder what that would be called...parking rage?
Only if bitching is capable of picking up and thowing cars. Compaining is the only thing I've seen pregnant women do. Well, that and eating weird crap like ice cream with mustard and pickles.

I'm sure there are plenty of people who would accept that title in exchange for a good parking place.
Around my customer site they'd have to add "of the Month" to my current title of "Asshole" before it would work.

I think they should get a handicap sticker if their doctor recommends it.


That just raises a whole new "piss me off" list for me. Docs will issue a "handicaped" permit to damn near anyone that has the nerve to ask for one. For instance, I worked with a man a few years ago that put on a lot of weight (i.e., he got fat). So he went to the doc and got a handicap permit so he could drive a four wheeler into the bushes to drag out his deer when he shot it. He was too damn lazy to carry or drag it out like everyone else. Then he got the bright idea that he could improve his hunting chances during archery season by using a crossbow. So he goes to the doc again and claims arthiritus made it too hard to pull back the bow and -zap- doc gives him a permit to use a crossbow during archery season.

I think ALL handicaped stickers should be a lot harder to come by. :cuss:

No, misdeamenor endangerment and get a 2 month house arrest punishment instead of murder. If she's cute and white, no punishment as she has suffered enough. Not white/cute or a man -> 10-25 years.

Amen my brother.

Also, if you can't do the activity as it's meant to be done, why the hell do we bend over backwards to accomodate you? Let's say, for instance, my arthritis is SO bad that I can't even use a crossbow. Should I be allowed to use a gun? Maybe it's so bad I can't even walk around the woods. They should bring the deer to me in a cage. Then, instead of having to use the gun (since that's hard) they could rig it up so that when I say "now" someone else drops the deer (still in the cage) into a pool of water and drowns it. That would really help the handicapped.

A lot of you are going to think I'm a complete piece of shit, but whenever I go get groceries at the local supermarket I park in the expectant mothers parking space every time. It's the principle of the whole thing. I do not believe that getting knocked up entitles you to reserved parking. The store by my apartment has these designated signs that say expectant mother parking with the silouette of a stork carrying a baby in a blanket. ****ing ridiculous.


Yes.

The hottie that got knocked up gets the space? How about the guy that tapped dat ass? Maybe a parking space and a beer.

Do you have a sister, FMB? If so, I want to marry her. Then you can drop your future kids off for the weekend at their Aunt and Uncle's place. I will then tie them down and force them to watch Paycheck and XXX over and over and over again.
First of all, why? Why would you do that to the innocent children?

Second of all... no, I don't have a sister.

Absolutely they deserve the spot. My wife's Dr. said that most miscarriages occur before 12 weeks, so I applaud tons of parking spot TLC for the expectant mother's duration, and for weeks afterward. Jeez, what happened to chivalry??? The day comes that I can't walk an extra 100 feet for a mom-to-be would be a pretty sad day....

That would rule out all women.
You sure you wanna go with that one?
I mean give us a chance to at least be in the running.








Not all women bitch when pregnant. Those hormones make many happy.
I loved being pregnant. There is a glow when pregnant.

As my wife used to say, "the pregnancy glow is just sweat".
:)

She enjoyed being pregnant some of the time, but at the end especially it can be very challenging. She had sciatica with our first boy, and that was really tough.

The end, I admit, is physically challengingó just to sleep, never mind having to walk through a supermarket parking lot.
Luckily, I didn't have to go the full nine, being ordered to a pre-planned C-ection a month earlier. What a relief!! Too many, in the so-called "good-old-days" died in childbirth along with their babies.

I'm OK with them if they are used by women who are late in pregnancies. When my wife was really pregnant I'd get pissed when I'd see some lady pull into one we wanted to park in and show no visible signs of pregnancy, which happened often. It isn't your reward for getting knocked up last month.

How about get the lazy a$$ of the couch to go to the store for you in last month.

Which is why I think doctors should hand out temporary handicap badges for the last few months of the pregnancy.

Getting "knocked up" probably doesn't entitle you to anything, but being pregnant should.
Why should you care if a pregnant woman gets to park a little closer than you do?

Um, what do you do once you're inside the supermarket?

Leaning on the cart does take pressure off your feet.( I used to push, then jump on and ride it like a bike). Groceries get carried out by baggers if needed...and they do have those carts, for those in the worst shape. Luckily I didn't go 9 months like I said.

I'm not sure I'm buying that leaning on the cart helps all that much. Even if the groceries get carried out by baggers, you're still WALKING next to them. As I said earlier, those in worst shape can get a handicapped placard, there are no shortage of those parking places.

I don't really have a huge problem with the concept, as someone stated earlier it's private property and they can designate the parking however they want, I just fail to see the logic in it.

Not in my opinion. Nor do about 50% of the people with "disabled" tags/permits.

Actually, what pisses me off just about as much is seeing someone with a handicapped tag park in a regular spot when there are handicapped spaces available.

Have you ever been pregnant?
I did it all the time...and when I had an knee injury...it helps!

I have never advocated the govt requiring a private place of business to do this. But if private places should, because their customers may happen to have a lot of families in their area, and they want to do something nice then I don't see any problem with that.

And to be honest with you I ate out during a lot of mine anyway and never had to try walking in the 9th month as I posted. But if the 8th is any indication, just by the difficulty in finding a comfortable sleeping position...well then I can imagine what it'd be like.
