OK, big irritation of mine! Does congressional staff that does not office permanently in the town really need reserved parking right next to the handicap spaces?

In the town where I office primarily, part of the post office building houses a congressional office that is sometimes occupied by the local congressman's staff. This building has limited parking and is quite busy during several times each day.

Now, don't get me wrong, I don't mind parking in Timbuktu to go into the post office. What bothers me is when I see an elderly man have to park way in the back and walk with his packages to the front door while this parking place sits empty or is used by "congressional staff" occasionally. UGH! Where is the servant leadership mentality here? In any business I have ever worked the employees always park in the far reaches of the parking lot and leave the convenient parking for the customer. I think this concept is lost in this case? Am I just a grumpy complainer or am I on a subject that gets you a little irritated too? On that note...Early voting is open so do your part to keep America what our forefathers sacrificed, faught, and died to leave to us!
