Mom Takes Daughter Shopping At The Mall, Then A Stranger Leaves A Rude Note On Their Car About Her Looks

Justine decided to take her daughter to the mall in Australia on a beautiful fall day. She parked her vehicle in a handicap space and the two walked into the mall to enjoy a day of shopping together.

When the women returned to the vehicle, Justine was shocked to find a handwritten note someone had left on her windshield. She was floored when she read what a stranger had actually taken the time to write.

Did you forget your wheelchair???

Those five words had the power to ruin her day.

That’s because, while Justine may appear “normal,” she had all the reason in the world to park in that handicap spot that day.

Her response to the heartless stranger has gone insanely viral…

To person that left this on my car last week at Mitcham Shopping Centre — I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 35.

Not just MS but the worst one that never goes away and is slowly crippling my life.”

My kids have had to deal with things that kids shouldn’t ever have to deal with and all of our futures are forever changed.”

On the day you saw me I was having a good day, I was walking with my daughter unaided having a nice day.

Thank you for ruining that.”

You made me feel like people were looking at me, the exact way I feel when I can’t walk properly.

I am sick of people like yourself abusing me on my good days for using a facility I am entitled to.”

 

A disability doesn’t always mean a person has to be wheelchair bound but lucky for you I one day will be.

Right now my focus is to walk into my best friends wedding next September and not have to be pushed. I will be 42.”

Before you ruin another persons day remember you don’t know everything and just because you can’t see it it doesn’t mean a person isn’t struggling to put one foot in front of the other.”

This is a good example of why you should not jump to conclusions; you never know what struggles a person is living with. Please SHARE Justine’s powerful message with your friends on and family on Facebook.
