I had a lovely encounter this morning when trying to park in my usual spot - an accessible bay fairly close to where my office is. Today, there were two delivery vans right next to the bay and people were unloading stuff, and empty crates had been stacked all over the parking bay. A guy, who by his name badge was a member of staff rather than a delivery person, came over and I explained that I needed to park in the space because I was disabled. He told me to walk to the security office and complain there. I said even if I had the time, I can't just walk
there, since I'm disabled. He replied "If you're disabled, then you can wait". I was shocked and told him that I couldn't wait because I needed to go to work, and that yes, disabled people can work too. He said "Well, what do you think these men are doing? They are working." I was basically shouting at him at this point and told him that they could do their delivery a bit further down, whereas I have no choice as to where I park". The guy just walked off and finally told the people to clear the space - I had to wait another 5 minutes, while getting stared at by some of the staff members outside.
Thankfully, I remembered to take a picture on my phone of the crates in the accessible bay, and also have previous pictures of delivery vans parking in blue badge spaces. There's definitely going to be a complaint, since my employer keeps on going on about how diverse and equality-friendly they are, just need to find out who the right department to complaint to is. Hopefully the "Disabled people can wait" guy will get into serious trouble
