Papa John's Pizza Complaint - Drivers park in disabled parking and won't move
I came home at 11:30PM after my shift ended. A Papa Johns delivery driver had parked in the ONLY disabled spot in my apartment buildings lot. I am disabled due to a spinal cord injury and degenerative bone disease. I have just had a total hip replacement and am still having trouble walking.
The driver refused to move, just sat there and "flipped me off" when I asked him to move. I had to park an additional 150 feet down the street due to the driver being parked in disabled parking. When I told him to move or I was going to call the police, he flipped me off again, peeled out driving extremely recklessly on a night where the streets were wet.
I made a complaint, but when the "regional manager" called, he advised me there wasn't anything he could/would do because the driver would just tell him he didn't do it and go on with his life. I suggested they bring me in to face this man, they refused the offer. The simply said it wasn't that a problem and they would ask the guy, but nothing would likely come of it.
I believe they are encouraged to do this to save time..I also feel this is a slap in the face of any disabled person in this country. Perhaps Papa Johns should be forced to donate to the paralympics and/or Christopher Reeves Foundation! It is time for this company to take some responsibility and show some respect for people who are unable to walk, who can not breath so they have to park close, for those with conditions that make it impossible to walk.
I have seen other company's park there, but when asked, they move and are quite nice about it. The space is clearly marked, has a sign you can't miss, and if you are trying to take a short cut, at least have the decency to move, if you think you should park there at all.
I am sure nothing will come of this. The "regional manager" has not called back and I am guessing this is over.
Go to Facebook, john Papa Johns Boycott and let them know you are not pleased with the lack of respect. Let the company hear our voice!
