A mother was furious when she found a “cold-hearted” label on her car while driving her son to the emergency room.
The woman and her husband rushed to a hospital after their son may have suffered a broken hair while playing sports. Her husband left the car to park when she stormed inside.
“Hey rude son of a bitch,” read the note she found in the emergency room 30 minutes later.
“You will notice that the sign says ‘park in reverse’. I was about to reverse into a parking space and you snuck in – and then had the guts to hide it. Dirty window? You make no sense at all.
“I noticed you didn’t reverse park.”
The mother shared the note on a community Facebook page, where it was spotted by radio station 4MK.
The furious mum took to the social media platform to vent about the note, which she described as “cold-hearted” and urged the crime writer to “pull your head in”.
“The way my husband parked was the last thing on his mind when he sought emergency medical care for our child. I can imagine that literally every other car here that has been parked backwards can do it. (Also note any empty seats, we’ve only been here 30 minutes),” the woman wrote. Yahoo News reported.
She noted that it was odd that the grumpy vehicle owner assumed the driver was a woman and said they should have looked them straight in the face.
“You’re clearly just a cold-hearted coward. Next time you think about the circumstances, you may have left that note in the car of someone whose family member is dying. Have some damn empathy — it’s not hard.” She said.
The post was later removed from the original Facebook page, but social media had already commented on the matter.
“They switched to reverse parking not long ago, I got caught myself. I think in an emergency it really matters!!! Whoever wrote this gets a life,” said one social media user.
Another said: “Sure the slip isn’t nice but stealing the parking lot wasn’t nice either…” [the woman] had an emergency, but that doesn’t automatically prove them right.”
“I couldn’t have been in too much of a hurry if I had time to write a note,” said another social media user.
Another social media user commented, “I feel sorry for the author, he must be in a bad way to put himself through this.”
Another said: “That says a lot about the author taking the time to write a hateful note in front of a HOSPITAL.” It takes nothing to have patience, breathe and be kind no matter what you do just going through.”
