Crippen Final Warning cartoon - 2nd December 07

Zoom in to this image and read text description

Some people just don't get it do they. I use a wheelchair when I need to, and when I don't, I don't - if you see what I mean?! I've lost count of the number of times I've revisited a venue to be told 'I thought you were in a wheelchair?!' 'Yes, I was, the last time I visited. But I'm OK today and don't need it'. This is usually followed by a suspicious look! It's the same with blue badges. I use mine when I need to, and when I don't need to, I park in a 'normal' space. Simple enough I would have thought?! Anyway, this cartoon is based on this situation and the possible follow-on.
