Michigan man Matt Milstead was leaving the YMCA after a game of wheelchair rugby when he found the nasty note left by a meanie who didn’t have the courage to leave their name on the windshield of his BMW.
The note, in no short words, pretty much accuses Milstead of pretending he’s disabled when he’s not.
“I’d love to see your wheelchair! I’m guessing male 25-35 years professional who thinks he’s got the world by the ass. But I could be wrong,” the note says.
Milstead is a quadriplegic and confined to his wheelchair.
While this note obviously effected Milstead but it seems it got his wife, Leslie Milstead, fuming mad as she posted it to Facebook with an open letter to the unknown note writer.
“You were so close on the age, he’s actually 36, and he is a professional with a full-time job. He is also a quadriplegic, which for him means that he can no longer move his legs or his fingers in either hand. He has no grip,” she wrote.
“So, if you are willing to give him your functioning hands and legs for the rest of your life in exchange for his six-year-old BMW and handicapped parking pass, I’m sure he’d make that trade.”
“Why are you so confident that a handicapped person couldn’t be a hard worker who is successful and owns a nice vehicle?”
It’s exactly the sentiment I was thinking. You know what they say… people who assume turn out to be asses. [Source]
