Fuck you too. My job at $big_company had an outing at your facility this evening. We even drove there, only to leave, angry. Why? No parking. When we asked where the handicapped parking was, we were told "we're full, use the overflow lot". Yeah... no. A dirt lot, across a busy street, and have to pay $10 for the privilege, and no accessible spaces? Fuck that shit.

Your website claims to have "a limited number of handicapped parking spaces", and wheelchair seating. I guess you only plan for a token number of disabled people to show up, regardless of the size of the total crowd, then that's it. When I called your "disabled services", I was told that when you have fireworks it gets crowded. Gee, ya think? That's not a reason to shut out the majority of your disabled patrons. Flexible parking where you can designate some more spots for handicapped could help.

Because you don't allow more than a token amount of space for us, you lost the money I was planning on spending at your concessions, a trivial $20, to be sure. Plus, you pissed off me and my guest. I shouldn't have to get there over an hour early just to be allowed in.

I agree. Do you plan to follow up with a complaint?

You've got me thinking with your phrase 'flexible parking'. One of the places I often go to eat, and to buy gardening products, is popular with disabled people but it really lets itself down with too few parking spaces for us. How would 'flexible parking' work? The spaces are painted onto the car park and of course, the disabled ones are wider than the ordinary ones.

I agree, they should designate more spaces for events by setting them off with cones. Then ask those who don't require the wider spaces to take the thinner ones to please use those first. Geez Louise. I suggest a letter to the editor of the local paper.
