An Open Letter To The Person Who Left A Cruel Note To The Amputee Parking In The Handicap Spot


Man, what is this world coming to?  I mean, some people have to even criticize people who are disabled parking in a handicap spot?  I mean, handicaps have enough trouble from normal people parking in the handicap spot, just to be closer to the store.  But, this person who is an amputee, and qualifies for a handicap spot at their apartment complex, can’t even get the dignity and respect from the people living at the same apartment complex.  The world is getting more uglier by the day sadly.

Now, Ashley Brady from Ohio, who is only 26 and lost her leg in a 2014 accident, got the apartment complex to install a handicap parking sign for her.  Apparently, one of her neighbors did not like this, maybe because this person has parking closest to the door syndrome.  Ashley has had a long road re-learning to walk, and because of the ice and snow, she had a hard time walking from her car to her apartment.  This is why there are handicap spots people!

As soon as the apartment complex installed the handicap sign, neighbors were parking in her spot.  Yep, parking closest to the door syndrome is alive and well.  Ashley tried to leave a note explaining why she needed that handicap spot, but it was not enough.  Because a neighbor left this note instead.

“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].”


Wow!  How rude and wrong this person was!  Sadly, for disabled people like Ashley and me.  We all face similar problems from some people out there who believes all disabled people should not exist on this planet.  Or if disabled people do exist, they are only disabled because “there is something wrong in their brains.”  Yep, I got that quote from one person who e-mailed me with bad comments a few years ago.  In this world today, it is true that there are some people who treats disabled people with no respect whatsoever.

And it does not matter if a disabled person has a hardship from mental or physical disabilities.  A disability is a disability, end of story!  I don’t need a handicap spot for example, but I know of other disabled people who needs that space.  And they see some non-disabled person parking in that handicap spot.  This is just another example of disabled people seeing C**P from several people who thinks all disabled people should be treated like second class citizens.

Thankfully, Ashley is fighting back!  She has filed a complaint with the police department and apartment complex managers.  And after posting the letter Ashley found on social media, the internet has responded, and the letter has gone viral.  I am glad to see fellow internet people who supports Ashley and her right to have a handicap spot.  As for the person who wrote that evil letter, shame on you!  What if you became disabled, and you had people who fought against you because you were disabled?  You would feel hurt, would you?

This letter is just another example of what many handicapped people face on a daily basis.  Thankfully the feedback has been positive on the internet!  It won’t kill you to park a few spots down and walk to your apartment.  I walk for miles most days, and it does not kill me.  It won’t kill you to do some extra walking, the exercise would be good for you!  I hope we find out who wrote that bad letter to Ashley, because that person deserves to be evicted!  The moral of the story, disabled people are not bad people!  We are just a little different!
