Lola’s ordinary trip to Target quickly turned into an unexpected quest for justice when she encountered a carelessly parked vehicle. This is the story of how one woman stood up against inconsiderate behavior, championing the rights of the disabled community.
Lola’s Routine Target Run Takes a Surprising Turn
Lola had simple intentions: She was headed to Target, armed with a list of items she needed and the freedom to impulse shop.
Being a holder of a disabled parking placard, she usually found a spot without much trouble. But this day was destined to be different.
When she arrived, a familiar scene played out before her eyes. Every single disabled parking space was occupied.
The Escalade Encounter
More shocking, a massive Escalade was parked right across the dividing line, occupying two disabled spots at the same time!
To add to her irritation, Lola checked for a placard or a disabled license plate on the car – but there was none!
Lola Takes Action
This was not an isolated incident; Lola had encountered this disrespectful act numerous times before.
But this time, Lola wasn’t going to let it slide – it was high time for the matter to be addressed.
Documenting the Parking Offense
Lola reached for her phone and took a photograph to show this blatant disregard for parking etiquette.
The Store Manager’s Response
Lola found a manager in the store and presented her evidence. The manager’s eye-roll and sigh communicated a shared annoyance.
A Wealthy Town’s Parking Problem
She explained that this level of entitlement wasn’t uncommon due to the store’s proximity to a wealthy town.
Particularly, owners of large SUVs and trucks were frequent culprits of this inconsiderate parking.
The manager decided on a course of action: she’d call the police. Curious about how this would unfold, Lola positioned herself by the store’s entrance, ready to watch the action.
The manager, sharing her anticipation, accompanied her.
A Methodical Inspection Unfolds
Soon after, the police arrived. The officers went about their duties methodically, inspecting the car, snapping pictures, and taking notes.
Eventually, they requested the store make a public announcement, urging the car owner to step outside.
The Car Owner Emerges
The car’s owner emerged in no time – a middle-aged, well-dressed woman, the Common Karen of North America.
As she stormed toward her car, she was already raising her voice in anger at the police officers.
A Stern Lesson
However, one of the officers immediately silenced her and took a few minutes to explain her offenses.
The other officer handed her two pieces of paper, which Lola assumed were parking tickets. The woman’s face turned a shade of red Lola had never seen before!
After dealing with the woman, the officers briefed the manager. They had fined the woman $500 for each parking space she had occupied, summing up to a hefty $1000!
They also warned her about the consequences if she didn’t move her car immediately or if she caused further disturbances.
The Car Owner’s Furious Exit
The manager, having seen the episode through, thanked both Lola and the police and returned to her duties.
As for the disgruntled car owner, she huffed, puffed, and finally peeled out of the parking lot, tires screeching as she went!
Police in Pursuit
The police looked at each other and jumped into their car to follow. It seemed she was far from done with her lessons for the day!
A Victory for Disabled Rights
Lola, on the other hand, was left with a sense of satisfaction. She had taken a stand, not just for herself but for every disabled individual who had been denied their rights.
What started as a regular shopping day became a small victory for Lola and the many others who value fairness and responsibility.
A Small Victory in a Regular Day
Redditors loved her story. One user said, “As the daughter to a disabled father who needs a van space to get out in his wheelchair, THANK YOU!” Another user commented, “Awesome! Peeling out got her an exhibition of speed and pulled her license I bet.”
