Wow. Just wow. People and their actions never cease to surprise me. This one that recently happened at the wonderful world of Disney will shock you.
If incidents like this continue, “the happiest place on Earth” might want to rethink its motto. A woman who recently took her disabled son to Disney World found a “rude” note on her wheelchair-accessible van from another visitor because she took up two parking spaces.
Tricia Proefrock was attending the park and said she only parked over the dividing line. The reason she did this was that the parking lot’s regular handicapped spots were full. Because of this, a Disney World employee told her to take two spots so she could get her wheelchair-bound son out of the van.
When she came out of the park, she found a rather rude note. Another Disney World visitor left a note on her van that read, “This is not a ticket, but if it were within my power, you would receive two. Because of your bull-headed, inconsiderate, feeble attempt at parking, you have taken enough room for a 20 mule team, 2 elephants, 1 goat, and a safari of pygmies from the African interior,” the note said. “The reason for giving you this is so that in the future you may think of someone else other than yourself. Besides, I don’t like domineering, egotistical, or simple-minded drivers and you probably fit into one of these categories.”
According to FoxNews, Tricia’s son Mason, 13, requires a wheelchair to get around since he has Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, an epileptic condition. Since sharing the note and her family’s story with the public, Tricia tells Fox News she’s received outpouring support from kindhearted people who are “understanding of situations like mine.” I don’t know about you, but I think this is just rude and wrong on so many levels. The nerve of some people.
