Miamisburg, Ohio, amputee takes to web to fight back against nasty note
When Ashley Brady a 26-year-old Miamisburg, Ohio, woman lost her leg last summer she tried to regain a normal life.
But this winter was brutal and she struggled to walk across the icy lot to her apartment. "I struggled a lot across the snow and ice in the parking lot trying to learn how to balance and walk," she told an ABC affiliate.
She asked management at her apartment complex for a handicapped parking space to avoid slipping on the ice.
"I finally get my handicapped parking spot last Thursday (March 12, 2015) and then I come home on Saturday and they're parking in my parking spot," she said.
She decided to leave a "stern" note when she didn't see a placard on the car.
"I was stern and confident in what I was saying and just letting her know she doesn't know what it's like to walk around without your own leg," Brady said, "She in return had placed this really rude note under my windshield wiper."
The letter reads:
"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! You messed with the wrong one! I don't care what your note said shove it, but you touch my car again 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! - (expletive)"
In shock Brandy turned to the web and posted a photo of the leter on Amputee Coalition of America's Facebook page where the photo has been shared over 2000 times.
