An Ohio woman with a prosthetic leg who asked a neighbor not to park in her handicapped parking spot was left astonished by a nasty note she said she found on her car earlier this week.
Ashley Brady, 26, lost her leg in a 2014 accident and only recently learned how to walk with a prosthetic, WKEF-TV reported.
"I struggled a lot across the snow and ice in the parking lot trying to learn how to balance and walk," Brady said, "I fell multiple times all of which my neighbors have seen."
As a result, the 26-year-old's Miamisburg apartment complex granted her a designated handicapped parking spot. But, on Saturday, she noticed someone occupying her space. She decided to leave a note notifying the individual about her condition.
"I was stern and confident in what I was saying and just letting her know she doesn't know what its like to walk around without your own leg," Brady told WKEF. "She in return had placed this really rude note under my windshield wiper."
The note 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! -(b****)"
The letter stunned Brady.
"I read it probably like 5 times over and over because my brain just couldn't even process the level of mean that it was," she said.
The photo was posted on the Amputee Coalition of America's Facebook page where it has since amassed thousands of shares.
"I got a lot of feedback online from a lot of other amputees who have been in similar situations," Brady told WKEF. "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."
Management has not determined how to respond to the incident, WKEF reported. Brady, however, did file a police report.
