Angry Driver Questions the Wrong Veteran for Parking in Accessible Parking Spot

“I would love to hear what your idea of a handicapped person ‘looks’ like.”

When it comes to judging someone for parking in an accessible parking spot, even with the best of intentions, you probably want to make sure you have all the facts before you leave a nasty note on a person’s car. Imgur user Noctourniquet shared one such note his neighbor left on a car and the perfect reply he received. The person accused of parking illegally turned out to be a wounded veteran with a license plate that clearly gave him permission to park in the spot. The veteran’s strongly worded response included this important statement: “I would love to hear what your idea of what a handicapped person ‘looks’ like.”

Check out the note and the veteran’s response below.

The protest was partially a response to the company's so-called "Great Workplace" restructuring initiative which Walmart began testing last year and plans to roll out in at least 1,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores by the end of 2020.
