Gold Coast woman leaves note for driver parked in disabled space without permit
Read the achingly kind note a sick woman left to an obnoxious driver who parks in a handicapped spot — before she reveals what she REALLY thought: “Push it away.”
- A Gold Coast woman left a message for a reckless driver
- The driver was parked in a disabled parking space without permission
- The chronically ill woman had to park far away
A chronically ill woman who was left crying in her car for five days in a row has shared the very kind message she left for a visitor in her disabled parking space – before revealing what she really thought of the selfish Parker.
The 19-year-old Gold Coast woman said she left the note Wednesday after the driver, a guest at her apartment building, parked in her disabled parking spot without a permit for a full week.
The driver’s reckless movement meant the teenager had to park in the basement of their building and climb two steep flights of stairs for five days.
Still, the young woman managed to leave a note, which most commenters under her Facebook post said she was “a lot nicer than I would have been.”
A 19-year-old Gold Coast woman struggling with a chronic illness shared the kind news (above) that she left behind a driver who had parked without a permit in her building’s handicapped parking spot for a full week
She wrote: “I hope you enjoyed your holiday but since you arrived you have been parked in a disabled parking space without a permit.
“This has made my week extremely difficult as I rely on these pitches so I don’t have to park in parks that are far away or sometimes in the basement.
“In the future, please be more careful about where you park and how it may affect others.”
She also attached a “disabled ally” sticker for the driver, writing in her post that they “can stick it on their car or push their a** up.”
The frustrated teenager said she tried four times to get help from management of her building, but all she shrugged off.
The woman said the driver parked in the lot (above) for seven days while staying in her building as a guest
“(On the sixth day) I spoke to security again and they said management doesn’t see a problem so now it will just stay there for the rest of their vacation,” she explained in her post.
“I’m sick of how no one seems to notice how hard it is for disabled people to have these parks taken away from them.
“I’ve had to park two floors down in my basement five times this week because of this person occupying one of the handicap spaces.
“I sit in my car and cry because I’m afraid to walk up two steep basement ramps.”
Commentators flocked to support the young woman, applauding her for leaving a kind message despite the frustrating circumstances.
Several commenters applauded the woman for leaving a kind note (above) that also included a “disabled ally” sticker for the unwary driver
“May I say how well you handled it? You stayed so respectful in your note. Credit to you for that,” one person said.
“I thought it was really illegal to park in it? What the heck?” wrote another.
“This is really such nice news that you are so patient,” said a third commenter.
A fourth wrote: “You should contact your local disability advocacy group for support for screwing up your building’s reception desk by failing to take action.”
Other commenters pointed out that the parking lot is private property, so police cannot fine the driver.
