But they already have their own chairs

Seen yesterday at Dallas Fort Worth airport:


Yes, I know, it’s the universal sign for all sorts of various handicaps, but I still got a chuckle out of the notion that these chairs are reserved for people who pretty much bring their own chair with them wherever they go anyway. Perhaps there should be a different “handicapped” indication for those who aren’t wheelchair-bound. Maybe the same abstracted figure with a cane?


I took a very similar photo a while back. (Actually, I just checked, and Flickr says it was taken on… October 7th!)
