Handicap parking is designated for those with disabilities and it is hard to fathom why anyone would view this accommodation with malice. Unfortunately, Ashley Brady, a 26-year-old amputee in Ohio had to deal with an unpleasant woman who had parked in a handicapped spot.
A note left on Brady's windshield noted in part, "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!"
That was the response after Brady left a note on the other woman's vehicle and told her why she needed the spot. Brady also made it clear she would have the car towed if it was parked there again.
She remarked, "I read it probably like five times over and over because my brain couldn't even process the level of mean that was."
In 2014, Brady lost her leg in an accident. She asked management at her apartment if a handicapped spot could be added near to her building and got her wish, but had to wait all winter while the ground was frozen.
Brady has since filed a grievance with local police about the incident with the other driver.
