I guess this is for people who have lost a limb, had it re-attached, and then lost it again.

There are other disabling pathologies that do not allow prolonged walking or that in any case in combination with partial inability to walk (me) can be recognized for certification with a parking ticket dedicated to reserved spaces.

I have one ... unfortunately.

I have four disabling diseases, 24 hospitalizations and 15 operations undergone in the last 32 years.
I can walk for short distances but only on flat ground, I can't take the stairs, I have a driving license recognized for the disabled, I don't need an automatic gearbox in the car but I have the possibility of having it for free as a driving aid (on my request or a medical commission), I can bring a scooter as long as it has an automatic gearbox and I often drive less effort because I don't have to use the clutch, it's not there.
Call me a masochist but I don't leave, as long as I can drive I do.
PS: the card in the photo has expired but I have already renewed it (it expires every two or five years, depending on the type of pathology).

It was a joke about the misspelling in the sign.. Obviously you did see it...

I actually have a blue accessible parking pass, but I think I would skip that particular spot if I saw it myself. I haven't severed anything, and I don't need to start now!

Obviously I saw it and I understood the irony (reservered/reserved).
But it seems that the Anglo / Americans want the ironic comments to have a written confirmation of the reader to point... outthere was a hint of understanding on my part, but I wanted to clarify (given the theme of the thread), that it there is also those who do not understand that symbol well.
No misunderstanding.

I have zero respect for people who park in spaces reserved for persons with disabilities without justification.
However, one can also see humour in persons taking "wheelchair parking only" literally.

Don't take it personally Attila.. Italian are famous for their sense of humour, but they got no clue about sarcasm..

If you think the American are bad, you should try Australian sarcasm...

Have a look on the ADV forum under the regional section...

Once you learned, it is hard to live without it..

You are correct sir.
I am very respectful of the handicapped parking spaces. It was the misspelling that was funny to me.

Just for Attila I will post a picture I took a few years ago in the neighborhood where my mother lived.
(The humor of this one will be lost on those who do not speak Italian but it describes how I feel after having to do any plumbing repairs.)

When you have a lot of free time and you don't know what to do, sometimes some people realize that they count little or nothing in the weight of society and then they invent a reason to protest, it doesn't matter against or for whom, doing it and bragging about it is something already; obviously an intervention by a psychologist would be a solution ...

I saw the same thing at the Mac in Latina, ten cars lined up outside the Mac Drive and on the other side at the internal service, the empty parking lot and the empty tables.
Well ...

Here in the US, THEY don't even know what they are protesting about. Doesn't stop them from attending school board meetings though…

I guess when you run out of electrons and the tow truck doesn't carry a gallon of them, you get towed to the nearest charge station. Vehicle stays on flatbed until charged? Wonder how much this tow cost?

I was also on the opposite side of the road.

Driving home through the countryside near dusk after visiting my mother, saw some shapes near the road. Wasn't sure they were people, but as I got closer, there were several guys standing, one holding a camera and tripod, one kneeling next to a bride in a white dress. In a driveway, with a bit of icy snow. It was 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Nothing scenic, pretty bad lighting IMO, but hey....why not?

I wonder...on the rare occasion I let my iPhone battery outright die, it takes a few minutes of charging before it can power on. Did they have to charge it enough to be able to put it in reverse or something...? Did the wheels or transmission lock up once the power hit null?

I do not know if this is weird shit.

Today returning home with the scooter I was surprised by an unusual and extremely long traffic jam. Finally when at the front of the traffic jam I found out it was created by people cueing to fill up at a tank station.

Now today fuel prices have increased sharply over here and a liter of diesel is now official maximum price 2,08€ (8,7$/gallon if my calculation is correct).

At that tank station there was something weird. It is an unmanned tank station and it advertised on the screen diesel at 1,077€/l or sort of half the price. Prices for gasoline were also abnormally low.

I did not check if that was what was really payed at the pump but according to an on line article in one of the national newspapers it was real for at least a few hours.
The news got around fast and that created this massive traffic jam.

This is the article: https://www.hln.be/kampenhout/oeps-diesel-tijdlang-aan-1-077-euro-per-liter-duur-foutje-bij-dats24-in-kampenhout~ac07d30d/
It is in Dutch, but a little bit of google translate can help.

Oof... I accounted for fuel cost hike greed in my future planning. I forgot about the hysteria-induced shortages and the muck that usually comes with hurricanes. Damn. Recalibrating my head....

The weird:
I wasn't expecting a large, blue, plastic wading pool to gently float across a 6-lane artery road. It casually touched down ahead of me in the middle far-side (from where it was coming from) lane...my lane. Of course.
I finally got to use my hazard lights! (I haven't had hazards on a bike since my first, a Buddy 125.) I directed traffic around the big blue floaty while keeping it from getting unpredictable since the wind was still playing with it. Finally, traffic eased up enough that I could haul it back across the road and find a dumpster to stuff it into.

Naturally, the good deed was rewarded with a trouser leg full of sand burrs.
...That I discovered when I adjusted my seating position right after pulling back into traffic.

It's not every day you see a vehicle (truck, in this case) driving diagonally to go straight.

I don't know if it was the wheels, the axles, the frame, or what, but something was definitely bent or warped.

AKA dog-tracking.
Regardless of what it's called, it was weird as anything...and unsettling to see coming at you on a narrow 2-lane highway. Looked like it was itching to turn left into or in front of me at any moment.

And you would have to wonder if whatever the reason was if it was going to have a major structural failure at any second! Or should I say another major structural failure?

I didn't see anything but I was in a huge Mall yesterday just before the shops opened and they were playing just the keyboard section of Radiohead's Everything in its right place through the sound system.

Radiohead, in the Mall.
