An Ohio #woman who is a recent amputee due to an accident which took her leg has been struggling for the past year to learn to walk again with a prosthetic. Last Thursday Ashley Brady was relieved when her apartment building finally installed a handicapped parking space for her to use close to the entrance, helping her avoid the ice and snow.
On Saturday a neighbor –without handicapped tags parked in the handicapped spot. So Ashley wrote her a note asking her not to park there… seems fair, only this is the response the not so neighborly neighbor wrote in return.
Text from the note:
“Hey handicapped! 1st, never place your hands on my car again! 2nd, 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 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!!!!!! -Bitch-”
Ashely’s sister posted the letter on Facebook to get greater awareness for the struggles that come to people with disabilities which quickly got a lot of feedback and support from others who faced a similar situation. While she has filed a grievance with the local police she says:
“She told me to cry to someone who cares, and I went to the Internet and apparently a lot of people care.”
