An Australian mom out shopping with her daughter returned to find a note attached to the windshield of her car. The car was parked in a handicap spot. The unknown author of the note decided to play parking lot police, or something, when in actuality he or she was being a real douche.
When she was 35, the mom was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a degenerative disease that slowly degrades the lining around the nerve cells in the brain and spine. The thing about MS is you can’t always tell a person is sick. The person can look completely fine, when really, he or she is in incredible pain. This mom suffers silently from the disease.
So she comes back to her car to find this note and takes to Facebook to get some type of payback, or at the very least, hope that the person responsible for the note sees the post and realize they’re a massive prick. Here’s the message in it’s entirety.
To person that left this on my car last week at Mitcham Shopping Centre- I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 35. Not just MS but the worst one that never goes away and is slowly crippling my life. My kids have had to deal with things that kids shouldn’t ever have to deal with and all of our futures are forever changed. On the day you saw me I was having a good day, I was walking with my daughter unaided having a nice day. Thank you for ruining that. You made me feel like people were looking at me, the exact way I feel when I can’t walk properly. I am sick of people like yourself abusing me on my good days for using a facility I am entitled to. A disability doesn’t always mean a person has to be wheelchair bound but lucky for you I one day will be. Right now my focus is to walk into my best friends wedding next September and not have to be pushed. I will be 42. Before you ruin another persons day remember you don’t know everything and just because you can’t see it it doesn’t mean a person isn’t struggling to put one foot in front of the other.
Seriously, why do people have to do things like this? Unless the person writing the note is handicapped and thinks that a person who isn’t handicapped parked in the spot THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NO NEED.
People need to just mind their own…
