A Stranger Left This Woman a Nasty Note for Using a Handicapped Parking Spot

Ashley Brady, 26, from Dayton, Ohio, lost her right leg in an accident last year and has been learning how to walk with a prosthetic ever since, Fox News reported.

Her apartment complex recently gave her a handicapped parking spot so she could avoid a long walk on ice-covered pavement to her home. When she found another car parked in it, Brady left a note explaining the situation to the owner of the car, asking them to refrain from parking there. In return, the owner of the car left her a nasty note.

It read:

Hey handicap! First, never place your hands on my car again! Second, honey you ain’t the only one with “struggles.” You want pity go to a one leg support group! You messed with the wrong one! I don’t care what your note said, shove it, but you touch my car again I will file a report, I am not playing! I let the office know the cry baby one leg touches my property I will cause trouble. So go cry your struggles to someone who cares cause I’m walking away with both mine! -(expletive)

Brady’s sister, distraught by the cruelty of the letter, posted a photo of it on Facebook. More than 1,000 people shared it in two days. Many, including other amputees, commented to show Brady their support and condemn the hateful note. “She told me to cry to someone who cares,” Brady told Fox News. “So I went to the internet, and it turns out a lot of people care.” Get the full story in the video below:
