Uh, do you realize this isn't the Internet, random troll lady?
"Hey Handicap," is not how a constructive dialogue about disability gets started.

Set your justified-outrage meters to "STUNNED!" after reading this, because asshats like these are not a dime a dozen (offline, at least).

Ashley Brady, 26, lives in Miamisburg, Ohio and this month she was assigned a handicapped space outside her apartment because she lost her leg in an accident last year. She's learned to walk again on a prosthetic, but snow and ice pose an extra challenge, so that spot is very important to her.

Unfortunately, it also seemed to be important to someone else living in their apartment complex, an awful bottom-feeding mouth-breather of a human who insisted on repeatedly parking in the spot with no handicapped tags. The car's owner has been identified as another woman in the apartment complex, but I am still convinced this person is actually an anonymous hate-filled Internet comment that somehow came to life like a reverse Freakazoid. That's because this is the response Ashley got back:
Have you considered a career in pretending online SJW's are a threat? You'd be great.
Here's the full text, in case you can't make out the (surprisingly good) handwriting of this surprisingly mean person:
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! -Bitch.
Well, at least she knew how to sign her name. Fortunately, everyone else in the universe agrees that Ashley is right. Ashley's sister posted the note to Facebook, where it found its way to the page of the Amputee Coalition of America. There, it's racked up tens of thousands of likes as well as sympathy and similar stories from other amputees.
In addition, Ashley has spoken to the Miamisburg police and is due to meet soon with the apartment complex's managers to figure out how to move forward (or back out slowly) with regards to this psychotic neighbor.
I hope you enjoyed the adrenaline of this justified outrage, and remember: real life is not anonymous.
