"Hey handicap" letter stuns, outrages disabled Ohio woman

When Ashley Brady spotted a car parked in a handicap parking spot that she had the right to, she left a note. That driver returned with an outrageous note of their own.

The 26-year-old Miamisburg, Ohio woman lost her leg in an accident last year. She fought hard for a handicap parking space at her apartment complex so when someone was parked there, she let them know.

She said she left a stern letter under the windshield of the car and thought it was over. That was until her not-so-friendly neighbor responded with a note of her own.

"It says 'Hey handicap! First, never place your hands on my car again! Second, honey you ain't the only one with "struggles." so go cry your struggles to someone who cares cause I'm walking away with both mine!" Brady said.

She said struggled through the ice and snow multiple times and last Thursday she finally got her spot. Two days later, her neighbor was parked there and she left her note. She said she left the neighbor's note a few times over and she tried to process it. Her sister posted her story online and found out she's not alone.

"I got a lot of feedback online from a lot of other amputees who have been in similar situations, you're not just going to get what you want by being bullying," Brady said. "She told me to cry to someone who cares, so I went to the internet and it turns out a lot of people care."

The Amputee Coalition of America found the letter and posted it, prompting the letter to take off.

She filed a complaint with police and is working to meet with the apartment complex's management team.
