A BLUE badge holder has slammed an “arrogant” teen for hand drawing a permit on a McDonald’s bag so he could use a disabled spot.
Dez Richardson, 38, spotted the shocking attempt on a vehicle at Tesco.
He was stunned to see two giggling and “able-bodied” youths emerge from the car after making the DIY badge on a scrap of paper torn from their McDonald’s bag.
Dez, a HGV driver, said: “I was parking in Tesco car park and this fella pulled in next to me.
“He was probably about 19 or 20 and had his lass with him, who was about the same age.
“They got out laughing and chuckling to themselves and I noticed something out of the corner of my eye on the dash as I walked around to my wife’s side of the car.
“I thought ‘that’s not a blue badge’ so I had a look and saw what it was – I just thought ‘you are kidding me’.
“You’ve got almost an entirely empty car park but you’ve chosen to go out of your way to behave like this.
“What does it actually achieve other than show-boating your own selfishness?
“That’s just taking time to be intentionally obnoxious.”
Following the incident in Stockport, Gtr Manchester, on Tuesday, Dez took to social media to vent his frustrations.
But he was criticised for “making assumptions” as Dez himself has invisible disabilities.
He suffers from painful damage to his spine and knees that reduces his mobility.
Dez, of Mossley, Gtr Manchester, said: “I posted about it wondering if someone would recognise his car and say something to him, hoping he would think ‘I’ve been caught here’ and maybe next time not be quite as arrogant.”
