Ashley Brady, 26, lost her leg in 2014 and has been learning to adapt to a prosthetic. She reserved a handicapped parking spot in her apartment complex but someone started using this space. She kindly left a note asking the person to stop parking there but she received this shocking written response in return.
The angry note reads:
Hey Handicap, 1st NEVER place your hands on my car again! And 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 crybaby 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!!!!!! -Bitch-
Brady’s sister, Kaitlyn Siler, posted the photo to Facebook hoping to bring awareness to the challenges that people with disabilities face. Since then, the note has gone viral and people have reached out to Brady expressing their support.
The Facebook message read:
“I lost my leg over the summer and am just trying to adjust to my new life. I requested to have a handicap parking spot to my apartment but with the ground being frozen I had to wait almost all winter. I FINALLY get my parking spot and this small victory meant soo much to me. Then after having my parking spot only 2 days a lady who was not handicap and does not have plates parked in my spot. I left her a note saying why I needed that spot, that I found it disrespectful, and if she did it again she would be towed.”
“I got a lot of feedback online from a lot of other amputees who have been in similar situations,” Brady told UPI. “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.”
God bless you, Ashley, and stay strong. Don’t let the negativity of selfish assholes bring you down to their level.
