A British woman who suffers from severe arthritis and needs walking stick has been branded a ‘lazy snob’ in an angry note left on a car in a disabled bay.
The woman has been left shaken by the letter that called her ‘simple’ after she found it on her car windscreen this week.
As the woman suffers from painful ulcers on her legs and has a lung condition, she uses a disabled parking badge.
The note said: ‘I am sorry if you are a bit simple – I will try to make this as straightforward for you as possible – this is a disabled parking bay and not for some inconsiderate moron who uses someone else’s disabled badge – all because you cannot be bothered to park legally!! ‘Have a nice day!’ Handwritten at the side of the printed note read ‘you lazy slob,’ and included a photograph of a disabled blue badge user.
Her daughter shared the note online, saying ‘My mother wasn’t entirely sure about (me) sharing the note, as she thinks people always have their own reasons for their actions, which I agree with. ‘But I was angry at her being called a lazy slob and hoped by posting it, that the person who did this, would think twice in future to how it can affect people with disabilities that are unseen.
‘Mum suffers from severe arthritis in her legs and hands and uses a walking stick constantly. ‘She has leg ulcers which are treated daily and she also suffers with COPD which is monitored by the doctors and she is on medication for, along with various other health concerns.’
The supermarket responded to the concerns saying ‘Our disabled spaces are for all disabilities, whether they are visible or not.’
