Mother Of Disabled Child Shamed For Parking In Disabled Spot
A US woman with a disabled daughter found a nasty note on her car accusing her of wrongfully using a disabled car park space.
Naomi Barringer from Denver, Colorado was shocked to find the typed note on the hood of her car while out shopping with her daughter Kaitlynn, 10.
Kaitlynn suffers from hypophosphatasia, which is a rare condition that causes her bones to be brittle and susceptible to breaking.
Every step that she takes she risks breaking her ankles, and has been in and out of hospital with breaks and fractures her entire life.
They have a disabled sticker visible on their car.
The note reads:
"I observed you parking in this Handicapped parking place today. It appears that you are not really handicapped - perhaps just in a hurry, or worse, just plain lazy.
"In case you don't know, these spots are reserved for people who are truly handicapped, and because of idiots like you, they have to park further away or not be able to come here at all.
"Before you throw this away, know that I have called in your license plate number to the local police. Have a great day!"
But despite the truly condescending, snarky note, according to Metro, Kaitlynn said that she "can understand that because I do look normal".
Although the person who posted the note may not have seen the visible sticker displayed on their car, Kaitlynn was still upset by the note.
"I was shocked by how mean it was."
The family have a GoFundMe page set up to help with the costs of Kaitlynn's treatment, which means she's been in and out of hospital all her life.
