Amputee Victim Receives Upsetting Note from Her Neighbor, ‘Hey Handicap’

Adjusting to life as an amputee comes with various difficulties for each individual person. For Ashley Brady, who lost her leg in 2014, the situation seemed to get much worse when she had to wait for an extended period of time before she received a handicap parking spot in her own apartment complex.

When she finally received her spot, however, Brady noticed one day that a lady without designated plates parked there, so Brady left her a note asking her to refrain from parking there in the future. When she got a letter in return, she was shocked.

The note, which begins with the words “Hey Handicap,” was shared on Facebook by her sister Kaitlyn and the Amputee Coalition of America.


Just in case the handwriting is difficult to read, here’s a copy of the text below:

Hey Handicap,

1st, never place your hands on my car again! And 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 about what your note said so shove it, but you touch my car again and 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!!

– B*tch –
