Disabled Parking Space

So, a person like this exists in the universe. That's kind of a bummer to discover.

The person we're talking about is whoever left a shockingly rude note on the car of a handicapped woman whose parking spot she/he had been stealing.

Ashley Brady, 26, from Miamisburg, Ohio, lost her right leg in an accident in 2014. She learned to walk again with the help of a prosthetic leg, but the cold weather and icy grounds have made it harder to get around, especially at her apartment complex.

"I struggled a lot across the snow and ice in the parking lot trying to learn how to balance and walk," Brady told WKEF-TV. "I fell multiple times, all of which my neighbors have seen." 

When she moved in, she had asked the property manager for a handicapped parking spot near the door so she could get around easier. She finally got it last Thursday, but after only two days of having the designated spot, she came home on Saturday to find that someone with no handicapped plates or placards had parked there.

Since Ashley didn't know who the car belonged to, she did what anyone would do. She left a note asking them not to park there again and warned them that next time the car would be towed, which is the basic consequence to parking in a handicapped spot without the proper tags. Everyone knows that, right?

"I was stern and confident in what I was saying and just letting her know she doesn't know what it's like to walk around without your own leg," Ashley said about the note.

If you're a semi-decent human being, you know that you shouldn't park in a handicapped spot because you are taking it away from someone who desperately needs it.

Apparently, this wasn't a semi-decent human being that Ashley was dealing with, because this was the letter the parking spot thief left on Ashley's windshield:

"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!


By the way, we assume that the "bitch" at the bottom of the note was not an insult, but just the person signing their name. And as you can tell by the wording and grammar, this person obviously isn't very bright, which we assumed anyway seeing as they stole a handicapped person's parking spot and then yelled at them about it.

Ashley was understandably shocked to get such an appalling, heartless response. She posted the letter on Facebook, where it quickly went viral.

"I got a lot of feedback online from a lot of other amputees who have been in similar situations," Ashley said. "You're not just going to get what you want by being bullying. She told me to cry to someone who cares, so I went to the Internet, and it turns out a lot of people care."

Whoever left the note clearly doesn't understand the power of the Internet, because now a lot of people are desperate for some swift, proper justice. Ashley has filed a grievance with Miamisburg police, but the apartment complex management has reportedly not decided on a course of action.

It's funny that this person wrote "bitch" on the note, because they are probably going to find out really soon that karma is exactly that.
