A woman from Ohio who uses a prosthetic leg merely asked a neighbor not to park in her apartment building’s handicap spot. And what she got in return is a note so nasty, it has appalled people across the country. Highlights include calling this woman a “cry baby one leg.” Who does this?!
Ashley Brady is only 26 years old. She lost her leg over the summer and has been struggling to adjust for obvious reasons. All she wanted was a parking spot and it seemed like she got her wish recently when her apartment building finally put one in. She tells Huffington Post:
“I FINALLY get my parking spot and this small victory meant soo much to me,” Brady wrote. “Then after having my parking spot only two days a lady who was not handicap and does not have plates parked in my spot.”
Brady then left a note. And the response was appalling.
1st, never place your hands on my car again! 2nd, 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 about what your note said shove it, but you touch my car again and 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!!!!!!
There really are no words. Out very job as humans is to try to be compassionate toward others. This woman failed this so very basic thing. Not only that, she showed what an incredibly rotten person she is by calling names. Was it really so hard for her to walk a few extra feet? The laziness is astounding.
Handicap parking spaces exist for a reason. Those of us who are able-bodied should thank our lucky stars that we have been so blessed and never question for a second that a person not as able-bodied might need that spot. Besides, is it really so hard for us to have to hoof it a bit?
Walking is good for us. It seems like our society has become so unfriendly, overweight, and entitled that we have forgotten that a little fresh air and exercise is actually not a bad thing. Especially when it serves the greater good. People who take handicap spaces are the worst society has to offer. Lazy. Slovenly. Rude. Selfish. All of the above.
And this woman is the worst of the worst.
