Outrageous READ: Disabled Vet Shuts Down Neighbor Who Wrote 'You Don't Look Handicapped'
A veteran in Texas got a nasty note on his car for using a handicapped parking spot at his apartment complex.
A neighbor apparently did not think the veteran "looked handicapped" so he left the following message on his car:
Stop parking in handicap spots!!!!
You DO NOT have a sticker nor do you look handicapped. I have taken a picture of your license plate and sent it to the courtesy officer for towing by the courtesy.
Stop being a jerk!
The Austin-area veteran got the last laugh though, writing a a very strongly-worded note of his own back and posting it on Reddit.
He explained, first off, that he does not need a handicapped tag under state law because his vehicle has a "disabled veteran" license plate.
"Although I may not 'look' handicapped to you, I can assure you that the amount of pain I feel in my lower body from walking due to combat-sustained injuries far supersedes any level of pain you have ever felt in your entire life," he wrote.
Then he signed it, "Sincerely, the guy who doesn't look handicapped."
