Mother Outraged By Rude Note After Parking In Handicap Spot For Disabled Daughter

Alyssa Steele is a Georgia mother that was shamed for parking in a handicap spot. When she, and her disabled daughter, returned to her car, she found a note that read "“You are not handicapped. You are a sorry sack of s---. Merry Christmas! I have reported your license tag to Cobb Sheriff’s Dept."

Alyssa told WSB-TV, “It’s really sad that people can be so quick to judge others. I don’t understand how they felt it was their place to say anything let alone how they phrased what they said."

Steele’s 5-year-old daughter has a condition called Chiari malformation, which causes a portion of her brain to come out of her skull. The condition isn't always visible, but it causes her daughter to become quickly fatigued and needs her to be on oxygen.

In addition, she wears a helmet and leg braces.

Steele stated, “We’ve been through a lot. I definitely was hurt and made me kind of question how people can do something like that.”

Steele hopes her experience will teach others not to jump to conclusions. Steele added, “I wanted to change the situation ... instead of how we were affected by it ... we can spread awareness to other people who are struggling with disabilities that are not seen to the eye."
