Today, I parked in a "Disabled" space. A woman and her kids comes yelling at me about how I don't look disabled and I was just being selfish. I roll my pants up to reveal two prosthetic legs. She then yells at me that I should have warned her before showing my legs since it could scare her kids. FML

OK, that was a terrible pun, and I should go to hell for that. A girl I know has a brother who had his legs blown off after walking through mines in Afghanistan, and he has prosthetic legs. He now does Rowing in the Power Olympics.

She's certainly enough to scare me. Poor kids, with any luck they'll recover from living with her, and grow into people with brains that realize people who have handicap plates usually are handicaped, since you can't just go to a convenience store and buy one.

My grandfather was a double amputee. One time a similar woman yelled at him because he was in a "wheelchair" spot and he didn't have a wheelchair. I knew all of the words that came out of his mouth but I'd never heard them said in the same sentence.

Hm... Is there a chance you saw it while moderating a few days ago? I haven't found a duplicate yet but if you do, please let me know!

I think I found the FML you were talking about(as I also thought this FML reminded me of an older one). It is from the user ICanExplain from 06/22/2015 or 22/06/2015. Whilst the concepts are similar, there are some differences. The older one mentioned elderly couple with a 7 year old instead of just mother and child and the new one mentioned 2 prosthetic legs instead of one.
So not a copy, just similar.

Probably a separate incident. This website is popular, and this is something that commonly happens to people with "invisible" disabilities.

aka I don't know which fml you're talking about, but Arrested Development makes everything better.

51, you do know there's a search feature... Right? And you do know what the phrase "word for word" means? I'm going to assume you don't know either of those things.

I read the one prosthetic story too. When I read this fml I thought the exact same, that it was a copy and pasted, but I was also thinking that maybe OP just posted it twice and one just finally got through and made its way in now. But it's 2 different stories, so that clears things up, I was confused.

I get angry when people park in a handicapped spot when they don't need it.

My mother is blind, and as whomever is driving her needs to guide her everywhere, the farther she has to go through a parking lot, the likelier it is that she'll injure herself by tripping over bad terrain.

#15, The point is that you can't always tell who "really" needs it just by looking, despite what little like the lady in this FML seem to think.


It's not even about the person being health or not. I often park in disabled spots and I'm not disabled at all. If anyone ever gives me shit about it, I'll tell them to wait while I collect the wheelchair using relative I'm collecting.

Yeah, it annoys me when people who aren't disabled use disabled spaces. But more often than not, the people who take it on themselves to do something about it are just morons hoping for a chance to be self-righteous.
