FOLLOWING an incident three weeks ago I feel compelled to write in response to a very rude old lady who, in a nasty tone, said to me: “You do realise you’re parking in a disabled spot?” Just because I was with my two young children and my mother, she presumed I was trying to park in the disabled parking area just outside Morrisons.
When I replied that my mother was disabled and she could check our disabled badge, she was rude again. In fact my mother has Trigeminal Neuralgia which is often described as the worst pain in the human body. She lost my father last year and on the particular day in question she was not feeling very well.
I have read a few letters lately where people registered as disabled have complained about people who are not disabled parking in disabled spaces. Whilst I understand the difficulties this creates, I do urge people to think carefully before they open their mouths and offend anyone.
Mrs H Bernard, Solihull.
