I noticed this sign in a local parking lot the other day, and began wondering if it was a one-of-a-kind jobber.
As it turns out, these signs are quite common. Images of some others, found quickly online, include:
I guess I wasn't the first person surprised enough by this signage to take a picture. The popularity of the whole stork thing in the images kind of surprises me, particularly where only a stork icon is used. For some reason, one of the expectant mothers is already pushing around a baby carriage; maybe she was an expectant mother before.
For debate on "stork parking" (man, when are they gonna have dork parking?), see this stuff
UPDATE: Okay, having thought for a few more hours (in the back of my mind) about this whole "stork parking" thing, I guess what's strange about it is that it seems to equate being prego w/ being disabled, given the way disabled parking spaces work. I know that in some instances it actually is the case that being prego can create a disability, but in other cases, it certainly is not the deal. So that equation is kind of strange.
But the other thing is that I guess I'm a little surprised by the degree to which the stork has been taken up. And not just because it's a bird thing. I much prefer the signs w/ the image of the prego woman, as at least that imagery doesn't sanitize the sitch.
That's all I've got. Not much. I should really just get back to my writing.
