Today, in Terrible People Doing Terrible Things: An Ohio woman left Ashley Brady, an amputee, a scathing letter after Brady politely asked her to stop parking in her handicapped spot. Brady had been given the spot from her apartment complex as she learned to balance and walk again with a prosthetic leg.

“I was stern and confident in what I was saying,” Brady told CNN/WKEF. “She, in return, had placed this really rude letter under my windshield wiper that said ‘Hey Handicapped! First, never place your hands on my car again! Second, honey you ain't the only one with ‘struggles.' 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!'”

Brady didn't have any trouble finding people who cared. Her sister, Kaitlyn Siler, posted the note to the Facebook page "Amputee Coalition of America" and was met with an outpouring of support from the community.
