Fox13 reports that a disabled Miamisberg, Ohio, woman, given a parking spot closer to her door, is now locked in a war of words with a neighbor who keeps taking her parking spot.
The woman, Ashley Brady, lost her right leg a year ago in an accident. After learning how to walk again with a prosthetic leg, the 26-year-old had to struggle across a parking lot covered with snow and ice. Balancing under those conditions is challenging enough with two legs, leave off with one prosthetic limb.
“I fell multiple times,” she told the news network.
The complex eventually designated a parking spot for Brady, but it turns out that was just the beginning of her troubles:
“I finally get my handicapped parking spot last Thursday and then I come home on Saturday and they’re parking in my parking spot,” she said.
Brady decided to leave a note when she didn’t see a handicap placard or plate.
“I was stern and confident in what I was saying,” Brady said. “She in return had placed this really rude letter under my windshield wiper.”
The note read in part:
“Hey handicapped! 1st, never place your hands on my car again! 2nd, honey you ain’t the only one with ‘struggles…’ 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!”
Brady’s sister posted the picture of the note on Facebook, and since then, it’s been shared more than 1,000 times.
Brady told the network that “I got a lot of feedback from this online from a lot of other amputees who have been in similar situations,” and that “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.”
She said she’s filed a grievance with the police. The apartment complex management hasn’t decided on a course of action yet.
There are few things more frustrating than non-handicapped people who park in handicapped spots. The entitlement is astounding.
